"Shameless" is officially losing a character before Season 4. Justin Chatwin, who has appeared as Jimmy (formerly Steve) on the darkly comedic Showtime drama, will not return as a series regular when the show returns. The reason? Jimmy died at the end of Season 3.
"Shameless" showrunner John Wells confirmed Chatwin's departure. "He has done great work," Wells explained. "But that character was coming to an end." Emmy Rossum -- the show's star and Jimmy's most-of-the-time girlfriend -- added that she "shed a couple of tears in my trailer" after hearing the news.
《无耻之徒》制作人John Wells已经确认Chatwin将会离开的消息。“他之前的表现都非常出色，”Well说。“但是这个角色已经演绎到了尽头。”在剧中作为Jimmy这个角色相处得最久的女友扮演者Emmy Rossum说，她听到这个消息的时候甚至忍不住落泪了。
This is actually the first confirmation that Chatwin's character did in fact die. Throughout Season 3, Jimmy had been balancing a double life with both the Gallagher family and with his secret wife, Estefania, the daughter of a Brazilian drug lord.
