It’s season five at Showtime’s “Shameless” and while all the Gallaghers have their romantic ups and downs, Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) is at a big point in his life when, as we saw at the end of last season, it was revealed that he probably has the same bipolar disorder that his mother has.

We may have last seen Ian bedridden and nearly despondent but in the new season he seems to be in a good place as he and Mickey (Noel Fisher) are living together (with Svetlana and Mickey’s baby) and the earlier bi-polar signs are not evident. But, this being “Shameless” we know that good things don’t stay good for long.

I was on the set of “Shameless” this summer and had the chance to sit down with Monaghan and Fisher and get their take on what we’ll see this season and what has kept #Gallavich together this long.
