Sons of Anarchy Scoop: Kurt Sutter Signs on Through Season Seven

at . Comments

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.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
