FX has renewed its top-rated series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ for two additional seasons, and signed a three-year deal with its creator Kurt Sutter.
The deal keeps Sons of Anarchy on the air until its seventh and presumably final season. The news should come of no surprise, considering the series draws over 8 million viewers a week and draws 5 million viewers in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic.
Sutter’s deal with FX and Twentieth Century Fox TV ensures the series will end how and when the scribe chooses, a luxury also provided to showrunners from The Shield and Rescue Me. The deal also allows Sutter to create addition programming for FX should he choose, though don’t expect to see a new series from him anytime soon. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sutter indicated he has no desire to head multiple series like some other showrunners.
