FX Renews Sons of Anarchy for Season 5

I don’t think it was really ever in doubt, but FX has just announced that Sons of Anarchy will be back for a fifth season next year.
Season four of the biker drama is currently airing in the US and season three has just finished its run in the UK.

Sons continues to be a huge ratings winner for FX and remains the channel's highest-rated series, thus far season 4 is averaging 5.8 million viewers.

FX president John Landgraf said in a statement following the announcement: “Everyone at FX is very grateful to Kurt Sutter, his many writing, directing and producing collaborators and his masterful cast for making such a compelling and beautifully crafted show… It is no small challenge to bring the themes of a great, ancient play like 'Hamlet' into a wholly original television setting and to tell this complex story in a way that is both riveting and accessible to a broad audience. The fans know how beautifully 'SOA' meets this challenge, and we thank them for their loyal and passionate viewership.”

Kurt Sutter has previously stated that he has envisioned a seven season run for the show and one would assume that is very likely to happen at this point with Sons of Anarchy remaining as popular and brilliant as always.
