After seven seasons and 88 episodes, The Shield TV show has come to an end. Did Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis) get his just desserts? The series could have ended with Vic’s death, him going on the run, going to jail, or getting away with it all. In the end, the vigilante was separated from his posse, abandoned by his family, and sentenced to three years in his own personal hell.
Should this be the end of this exceptional series or should it continue? There’s been discussions of a Shield movie and Chiklis and creator Shawn Ryan have indicated they’d be interested in seeing where Vic’s future lies. What will happen once his term with ICE is finished. Can he go back to his old ways? How will it change him? Will he ever see his family again?

To: Fox Television Studios, MiddKid Productions, Sony Pictures Television
We, the undersigned, greatly enjoy watching the FX TV show, The Shield. The series is truly unique, continually entertaining, and outstanding in many ways.
We’re truly sorry to see this complex show come to an end and are not ready to say goodbye to the tough world of Vic Mackey. Please consider continuing the tale in some new way, preferably in a series of movies, either made-for-television or in theaters. This gritty story shouldn’t come to an end just because the TV show chapter has concluded.
Thank you for your consideration.
