FX orders another new season for its highest-rated series after creator Kurt Sutter inked a new three-year deal with FX and 20th Century Fox TV.
"Sons of Anarchy" will return for at least two more seasons. After ordering a fifth season for the drama series back in October last year, FX has just announced that it picks up the show about a group of outlaw bikers for a sixth season.
The renewal comes just days after creator/showrunner Kurt Sutter sealed a new three-year deal to continue running "SOA" and to develop new projects for FX and 20th Century Fox TV. It is believed that a seventh and likely final season of the drama series is also part of Sutter's plan, though he is open to the possibility of the show living beyond that.
"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'," the often outspoken writer recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
"SOA" currently holds the title of FX's highest-rated program. The fourth season, which wrapped in December, garnered 8.4 million total weekly viewers and 5.5 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic. The fifth season is expected to premiere this fall.
