Question: Have you heard anything about The Shield coming back for a seventh season after these bonus 10 episodes?

Answer: My feelings are hurt, Kevin. I reported that The Shield had been renewed in the Ausiello Report on June 2. Oh, and for those keeping track of such things, those 10 episodes airing in early '07 are now officially being referred to as the show's sixth season. Apparently, calling them "fifth-season bonus episodes" was too confusing. Gee, ya think?
