Katey Sagal and Courteney Cox Are Joining Shameless Just in Time For the Season 9 Premiere

Shameless fans, your favorite cast just added two high-profile guest stars for the upcoming season nine. Katey Sagal and Courteney Cox are joining the Gallagher family for the expanded 14-episode season.

According to Variety, the Sons of Anarchy alum will be portraying Ingrid Jones, a crazed psych patient that Frank (played by William H. Macy) encounters in the ER and with whom he is immediately smitten. The patriarch of the Gallagher family is said to have some political aspirations this season, so we're betting that he and Ingrid will be up to no good. Cox will guest star as Jen Wagner, a famous actress who has had a problem in the past with booze. Lip (Jeremy Allen White), who is still entrenched in the late Professor Youens's life, is hired to be her sober companion. The actress takes him on a wild ride in search of a cocktail and with a Gallagher, that can either end up being a good time or jail time.

We can't wait to see what Sagal and Cox bring to the Showtime comedy when season nine of Shameless debuts on Sept. 9.
