FX appears to be as big a fan of one of its dramas as the critics are. The network has already announced it’s bringing back the critically acclaimed “Sons of Anarchy” for a fifth season, and now it has picked up a sixth season, EW.com’s Inside TV blog reports.
And that’s not all, the story reports — the cable net is considering extending the show to a seventh season.
Season five is set to premiere this fall.
20th Century Fox TV and FX Productions, which produce "Sons of Anarchy," have also closed a three-year deal with the show’s creator, Kurt Sutter, the story notes.
The story notes that the show “finished season 4 as its highest-rated to date, building upon last year’s season average by 18% among adults 18-49 and 21% among total viewers. The drama that stars Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal is FX’s No. 1 program in history.”
