SONS OF ANARCHY Rolls on to Season 5

Sons of Anarchy

The boys of SAMCRO are a long way from riding their last mile as Sons of Anarchy gets the greenlight for Season 5, even as Season 4 of the FX hit series continues to burn up the ratings. There are still seven episodes to go in Season 4 of Sons of Anarchy but a recent press release from FX reveals that Season 5 is already in the works, which is probably no surprise to anyone keeping track of the ratings.

As far as first runs go, Sons of Anarchy’s current season is keeping the show strong as FX’s highest-rated series ever, with 5.8 million total viewers, and 3.9 million of those viewers being in that highly-coveted 18 to 49 age range. Season 4 is averaging 9 million total viewers on a multi-telecast weekly basis, with 6 million in the 18 to 49 demographic.

“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,” says John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks. “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 is a modern spin on Hamlet? Really? I might need to brush up on my Shakespeare.

Sons of Anarchy airs on FX on Tuesdays at 10 PM ET/PT, with the Season 4 finale arriving on November 29th.

    SAMCRO is the best show ever. Period. It has surpassed the Sopranos, the Shield, and even the Wire.

    SOA is the best show around! It would be a blessing if I could be apart of the show if not just bring it to Atlanta. Sin City have a club down here in Atl and our clubs hangout with them very strong! I think ya’ll should make a movie dealing with this! You have alot of people into this show and not just bikers, because my wife and the guys at work we talking about it almost everyday! I enjoy it keep up the good work!!!!!!!!
