FX Picks Up Sons of Anarchy for Season 5

at . Comments

SAMCRO will be revving its engines for at least one more season.

FX just announced that Sons of Anarchy would return in 2012, not exactly a shocking announcement considering the drama is enjoying its highest-rated season yet through six episodes. It's averaging 5.8 million viewers per week.

β€œEveryone 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,” FX president John Landgraf said in a statement. β€œIt 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.”

Sons of Anarchy airs a new episode tomorrow night. Visit TV Fanatic the second it airs for a detailed review.
