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.

“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,” FX president John Landgraf said in a statement. “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.”

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