"Shameless" fans have practically tripled thanks to Netflix streaming of seasons 1-6 a whole new group of "Shameless" followers have been found. Later this fall many new "Shameless" fans will be torn as to whether or not to sign up for Showtime, purchase episodes from Amazon, or wait for Netflix to add the latest seasons of the popular comedy drama series.

'Shameless' fans base continues to grow

Tough choices. But for all Showtime subscribers, we will be anxiously counting down the days until "Shameless" Season 8 begins airing later this year.

Spoilers below, if you have not watched season 7, or want to look ahead to season 8 turn back now. Fans are getting itchy to know just what could lie ahead for each of the Gallaghers in the upcoming season. Here are some could be potential Gallagher love connection spoilers.

Will life finally run smoothly for the Gallaghers?

Fiona is now testing the waters as a real estate owner. When we left off, she had just bought an apartment building and was making big plans for her future. However, the one thing missing from Fiona's life was LOVE.

It's been recently suggested that Fiona may dabble in the same-sex relationship this season. Although many believe this is highly unlikely, Fi wasn't too keen on the idea a few seasons back when her gal pal Jasmine put the moves on her. Will fans see the return once again of Jimmy/Steve or will Fiona meet some new love prospects, perhaps one of her new tenants?

Lip, fans feel Lip needs to continue with his sobriety and get back to college.

Lip has a lot of potentials if he would get his act together. It would not surprise fans to see one of Lip's past loves return. Karen, Mandy, or Amanda?

Ian is everyone's fave Gallagher when it comes to relationships. It is known that Mickey and Ian truly love each other. Ian just can't throw away his life to Mickey's wicked ways though. If Mickey returns and offers Ian something new in their relationship, Ian could reconsider.

However, there is always Trevor. Fans liked Ian and Trevor together too. It felt right. We look for Ian to be torn between two lovers, will he make a choice, is there a possible new thrupple on the rise, or will he just move on from both?

Debbie is a mom now, and if the alleged time-hop takes place this season on "Shameless," it is going to age her a few years. As a single mom, she could take a page out of Fiona's past romance book and find her way through a sea of men before finally settling down.

Carl is... well, Carl. Even with military school possibly behind him, it would just seem fitting to see Carl slip back into some of his wild ways.

He appears to be the closest to their father Frank, and that could have some huge influence over which direction Carl goes in life.

Liam's cast change ages the youngest Gallagher sibling to around 9 or 10 we believe. He could go one of two ways, remember Carl at this age? Liam is still young enough that we do not see too much conflict for him just yet, at least we hope not.

As for Frank, his real true love is alcohol and drugs. As for women, he has lost Monica forever this time, and we see Frank continuing along his path of destruction, drowning his sorrows. After all, he is usually not that interested in women, unless they help him achieve his one main daily goal, getting wasted.

What are your thoughts for the Gallagher family for the upcoming season 8 of "Shameless."
