Must-See LGBTQ TV: New seasons of 'Shameless' and 'BoJack Horseman,' and the Creative Arts Emmys

Grab the remote, set your DVR or queue up your streaming service of choice! GLAAD is bringing you the highlights LGBTQ on TV this week. Check back every Sunday for up-to-date coverage in LGBTQ-inclusive programming on TV.

The ninth season of Showtime’s Shameless premieres this Sunday. The show continues to follow the dysfunctional Gallagher family, including Ian, who ended last season being hailed as a “Gay Jesus.” Season nine will continue that storyline as well as telling further queer stories. In the Season 9 premiere, Frank's latest sexual escapades get him into trouble with the Hopkins Academy PTA; Fiona struggles with her decision to bail Ian out of jail, while he continues his Gay Jesus antics inside; Debbie fights for equal pay at work; and Kev and V have trouble with the twins without Svetlana. Shameless: Sunday, 9pm on Showtime.

This Friday, the fifth season of animated dark comedy BoJack Horseman will be released in its entirety on Netflix. The critically acclaimed show is notable for including one of television’s few asexual characters, Todd Chavez, a human who finds himself caught up in frequent hijinks. We hope that his storyline will continue in this season, and open doors for further asexual and aromantic characters in media. BoJack Horseman: Friday on Netflix.

On Saturday the 15th, FXX will air the first televised Creative Arts Emmys, edited down from the awards being handed out over this weekend. The categories at the Creative Arts Emmys include several technical awards, awards for animation, reality, and guest acting categories, among others. Some of the many LGBTQ and inclusive nominations are Queer Eye, Steven Universe, Jane Lynch, Samira Wiley, and more. Check out the list of LGBTQ-inclusive Emmy nominees here!
