It’s good news for Shameless fans, filming for season 10 has kicked off and William H Macy is back on form as unstable patriarch Frank Gallagher.

The actor, 69, was spotted filming scenes on location in downtown LA yesterday.

And whatever is happening in the scene, it looks like Frank his up to his usual tricks.

Snaps show Frank worriedly is assisting a fallen pedestrian wearing a blue flannel shirt and jeans.

Also spotted was Macy’s Boogie Nights co-star Luis Guzmán, who first appeared in season nine of Shameless as Mikey O’Shea.

The upcoming run of Shameless will be the first without Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher.

Rossum left the show this year after nine years as Macy’s co-lead.

No release date has been announced for season 10 yet but it is expected to begin airing on Showtime later this year.

Macy has also had a lot going on in his personal life recently, as his wife Felicity Huffman is embroiled in the college admissions scam.

Shameless season 10 is currently in production.
