FX's good cop/bad cop drama will return for its seventh and final season in September.

The Shield's return to beat dated

Major network television may get all the hype and publicity, but there are plenty of good shows out there that don't have the privilege of gazillions of dollars of marketing and promotion. As the fall season nears, one of those under-the-radar programs--FX's The Shield--will close out a stellar run.

The upcoming seventh season of The Shield will also be its last; that much was known. But what wasn't known was exactly when it would air.

Seasons one through six all debuted no later than April each year from 2002 to 2007, but The Shield's final season will buck that trend. As fans have noticed, April of 2008 has come and gone without a new glimpse of Vic Mackey. Well, better late than never.

According to the show's Web site, the seventh season of The Shield will premiere on September 2, just in time to ...

The Shield's license renewed

Vic Mackey will return.

FX has renewed the tough LA cop saga The Shield, which got an order for a seventh, and final, season, with 13 new episodes that will air sometime in late 2007 or early 2008. The 10-episode sixth season is scheduled to begin airing in January 2007.

Series creator Shawn Ryan will remain on board as head writer and executive producer through the show's seventh season. Ryan is cocreator, along with renowned playwright David Mamet, of the new CBS hit The Unit, about terrorist-fighting US Army Rangers.

The Shield tells the dark story of the members of LAPD's Elite Strike Team, a role where the lines of good and bad are often in flux. The show stars Michael Chiklis as bald livewire Vic Mackey, a cop who has trouble controlling his anger.

When it premiered in 2002, The Shield proved that HBO wasn't the ...

The Road To Justice Is Twisted
The Shield breaks the conventional formula of the cop genre. It plays out in a tough, morally ambiguous world in which the line between good and bad is crossed every day. The series focuses on the tension between a group of corrupt but effective cops and a captain torn between bringing them down and advancing his own political ambitions. The Shield stars Michael Chiklis (The Commish) as rogue cop "Det. Vic Mackey," leader of the elite Strike Team unit, who is effective at eliminating crime but who operates under his own set of rules. Benito Martinez (Outbreak & Her Costly Affair) plays "Captain David Aceveda," the young precinct head who doesn't like Mackey's tactics and wants to bust him off the force. And the Emmy-nominated CCH Pounder (ER & Boycott), plays "Det. Claudette Wyms," a veteran detective who understands Mackey and knows how to play both sides of the fence. The show made history by becoming the first ad-supported cable series to win the 2003 Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Series. In its first season, Shawn Ryan (Writing) and Clark Johnson (Directing) received Emmy nominations, which were also firsts for basic cable in those categories. The Shield has received two TCA nominations for Outstanding Achievement in Drama. As of March 2005, the show has become the longest running series on the FX Network.moreless
