FX have renewed their highest rated series, Sons Of Anarchy, for a sixth season. This comes just after the show’s creator, Kurt Sutter, inked a deal with FX that will have him stay on as show-runner for Season 5, 6 and 7.
The show has been highly successful for FX and it is no surprise after the stellar season it had in 2011, the network is keen to lock everyone up on long term deals.
Kurt Sutter spoke to THR, and once again stated his plans for the show, telling the he is likely to wrap it up with season 7:
“There’s a part of me that does see being able to tell this story in seven seasons, but there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to say, ‘That’s it’… If there’s more story to be told after seven seasons and if financially it’s still a feasible endeavor, I’m definitely open to doing more.”
FX seems very committed to the show, as does Sutter and his amazingly talented cast. So far we’ve had four incredible seasons and whatever Sutter has up his sleeve will surely please fans.
Sons Of Anarchy season 5 premieres on September 5th, 2012, on FX.
