Emmy Rossum is returning to Shameless on her own terms.
The 30-year-old actress took to social media on Wednesday to confirm she would be returning to season eight of the hit Showtime series, after successfully renegotiating her contract.
"Playing Fiona Gallagher has been one of the great privileges of my life," she wrote on Twitter. "I'm so happy to continue w my SHAMELESS family! Back to work in May!"
In an interview with TMZ on Tuesday, Macy expressed his support to Rossum, stating, "They wrote the Equal Rights Amendment in 1927, it didn’t get passed until 1972. It still hasn’t been approved by all the states, therefore is didn't make it as an Amendment to the Constitution. It’s about f**king time, don’t you think?”
"She works as hard as I do, she deserves everything," he added.
Shameless, along with Homeland, ranks as Showtime's longest-running scripted original series and most watched.
