Lost in the TCAs excitement of another season of Louie, as well as The League and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia coming back in October and a “minimum of six seasons” for Justified, was Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter announcing that his show has an end date in mind. And that it’s still some time from now.
Creator Kurt Sutter confirmed the news in a post-session interview at the summer press tour. SOA has already been renewed through season six while Sutter earlier this year inked an overall deal with FX.
“We have a sense of it playing out in seven [seasons], he said. “At this point, which is not outside the realm of possibility, I think I’d really have to f*ck things up not to get seven seasons.” (Via)
Season five premieres on September 11th, which means, assuming every season gets a 13-episode order, there are still 39 installments left to air. That could be a good thing, if Sons is as exhilarating as the first 13 episodes of season four, or a bad thing, if Sons is as infuriating as the last episode of season four. Here’s hoping for the former — and for more creepy Ron Perlman smiles.
