Thank you, FX and Kurt Sutter!
The network announced in October than it had renewed Sons of Anarchy for a fifth season, though it failed to mention that the show's creator was actually not signed on for it at the time.
But we can now confirm Sutter hasn't just reached a deal for this fall - he's also a go for seasons six and seven!
In a slight jab for the way AMC and Matthew Weiner complicated their contract negotiations, to the point where season five of Mad Men was delayed by many months, Sutter Tweeted this week:
“closed my deal for 3 more years on SOA. no headlines, no pushed schedule, no stealing from paul. thank you FX and 20th for your generosity.”
Sutter also updated his blog earlier this month and gave fans their first teases for season five, which he deems will be a journey for new SAMCRO President Jax Teller.
