FX confirms Sons of Anarchy season three renewal

Charlie Hunnam and Maggie SiffRight on the tail of Kurt Sutter assuring fans that there would be a third season of Sons of Anarchy, FX has confirmed it -- the motorcycle drama will return in September 2010.

Another bright spot for the show? The series' second season finale, "Na Triobloidi," smashed the show's previous ratings record to make it the most watched Sons episode to date.

4.33 million total viewers tuned in and from that total, 2.99 million were in the coveted Adults 18-49 demographic. Men 18-49 chalked up 1.92 million viewers. With those numbers, the show secured the crown for the top scripted drama series during the season's 13-week run in the Tuesday 10 p.m. timeslot in average delivery of the Men 18-49 demo.

One other point worth noting -- Sutter signed a two-year deal to continue as executive producer and showrunner. So, unless something goes terribly wrong, there's a good chance Sons of Anarchy will have a fourth season in its future as well.

I love this show and glad there will be more seasons added. I am a 57 years old woman who has had a biker past. I don't know where that puts me in the demographics and I don't care, just keep the cameras rolling.

are you freaking kidding me! SEPTEMBER!!! If your writers can't get it together after 3 months off, fire those worthless bastards and I'll write season 3 myself. As much as I love the series, I hope another network picks it up and respects it and it's fans enough to treat it and them fairly. This sucks, you suck.

The show is fantastic. Every actor is flawless, the direction superb. Watching this show has made my own bike club "Knights of Aequitas" even more tight and more passionate about the club. It's winter here in Yakima Washington, snow, freezing rain, sleet etc. so it's hard to get out and ride. I'm aching to ride and "Sons" allows me to ride vicariously through them till spring. Can hardly wait till season 2 comes out on dvd and season 3 begins.

This show ROCKS!!! I am so happy to know there will be a 3rd season and perhaps a 4th. I like the way the show represents bikers as people with feelings and responsibilities. So many people think of bikers as lazy, troublemakers. That is so far from the truth!!

We've watched the show since Episode 1 and really enjoy it. It starts out at 10:00pm and then, since we are in AZ where we don't observe daylight savings time, it moves to 11:00pm. We really wish it would be on earlier. Great show!

As a big fan of the show, I did a doubletake at the gym yesterday when I realized that I had just walked past Ron Perlman (Clay). Being a non-LA, LA person, I still went up to him (all nervous) and congratulated him on the show's renewal and said that I loved the show. He said "thank you" very sweetly. I walked away with my legs feeling like rubber. But the adrenaline rush made for a great workout!
