Charming News: 'Sons of Anarchy' Gets a Fifth Season from FX

FX has ordered a fifth season of 'Sons of Anarchy,' which is currently in the middle of its fourth season on the cable network.

The news comes as no surprise: According to FX, the show's fourth-season premiere was the most-watched program in the network's history, with 6.5 million viewers tuning in. The biker chronicle is the channel's biggest hit.

"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 and general manager 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," Landgraf continued. "The fans know how beautifully 'SOA' meets this challenge, and we thank them for their loyal and passionate viewership."

Creator Kurt Sutter has said he has a seven-season overall plan for 'SOA,' and at this rate, the chances of his show airing all seven seasons from FX are very strong indeed. The current season of the show will wrap up on Nov. 29, FX said in its Monday statement.
