Shameless star William H. Macy has revealed that Frank will finally sober up in the show's sixth episode.

He told TV Guide that viewers will see the character's parenting skills dramatically improve.

"He becomes a really cool father," said Macy. "It gives you a glimpse into the father that Frank might've been or could be."

However, the Fargo actor admitted that Frank's sobriety will be short-lived.

"My oldest boy, Lip (Jeremy Allen White), can't take it," he explained. "He tasers me and pours vodka in my mouth."

Macy previously admitted that he loves playing the drunken character, asking, "What can be better than to have a character who's inebriated much or most of the time?"

Shameless airs on Sundays at 10pm on Showtime.
