‘Shameless,’ ‘The Affair,’ ‘Masters of Sex’ Season Premiere Dates Set at Showtime

Showtime announced fall premiere dates Wednesday for three returning original series — “Shameless,” “The Affair” and “Masters of Sex.”

Season four of “Masters of Sex” will premiere Sunday, Sept. 11 at 10 p.m. Season 7 of “Shameless will debut at 9 p.m. Oct. 2. Season three of “The Affair” will premiere at 10 p.m. Nov. 20, taking over that time period from “Masters of Sex.”

The series will premiere on Showtime’s linear-cable, on demand and digital platforms.

“Shameless” is exec produced by John Wells, Christopher Chulack, Nancy M. Pimental, Krista Vernoff, Etan Frankel and Sheila Callaghan. It is produced by Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

“Masters of Sex” is produced by Sony Pictures Television and exec produced by Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Amy Lippman and Judith Verno. “The Affair” is exec produced by Sarah Treem with Levi and Jeffrey Reiner.

Showtime’s Sunday lineup will soon face increased competition. Starz announced last month a plan to move its original programming, beginning with “Power” and “Survivor’s Remorse,” in July to Sunday nights. Sunday has long been where Showtime and HBO have scheduled their original scripted series. It is also where AMC has scheduled ratings powerhouse “The Walking Dead.”
