Promo for final season of The Shield - VIDEO
Remember this scene? It's from the season six finale of The Shield. Mackey is showing Aceveda all the dirt he's got on Cruz Pezuela and the Mexican mob. Seems like forever ago ... and it was. It's been almost a year and we're still waiting for a resolution. FX has been scant with news regarding the seventh season of its trademark show. Supposedly, it's returning in September so that its final thirteen episodes are not competing with the Olympics. It should be coming back sooner if you ask me. I don't really see too much audience intersection between fans of The Shield and fans of floor gymnastics routines.
I haven't watched too much FX lately, only because there hasn't been anything good on since Nip/Tuck and the mediocre Dirt both ended. There's no Damages, Rescue Me or It's Always Sunny... for a while either. So who knows how long the following promo has been running, but I stumbled on to it while goofing around on YouTube earlier today. As we've come to expect, there aren't many details - it just says something about a 2008 return. No new scenes either. It's all clips from season six. But you know what? It's something about The Shield and for that reason alone, I'm excited. September (I hope) can't come soon enough.
