According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sons of Anarchy‘s renewal for a sixth season is a lock, while many are expecting a seventh season to follow, which would likely be the final season.
This latest news comes at the same time as the show’s creator, Kurt Sutter, inks a three-year overall deal with Twentieth Century Fox TV and FX Productions. The two jointly produce Sons of Anarchy.
Here’s the deets: The deal guarantees a sixth season for SOA, while Sutter himself is allowed to develop content for both broadcast and cable. The deal also includes a script deal with FX.
Kurt Sutter recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “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.’ I almost feel like when you hang that kind of finality and put a period on something, there’s almost a backlash that happens with the fan base.”
He added, “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.”
