FX gives additional life to ‘Sons of Anarchy’

Sutter also renews pact for three years

FX has simultaneously given an additional season renewal to motorcycle club drama “Sons of Anarchy” and a three-year deal to its creator, Kurt Sutter.

“Sons” is the cabler’s top-rated show, averaging 8.3 million viewers per week when repeat telecasts and DVR usage are included. In the ad-influential 18-49 demo, “Sons” draws 5.5 million viewers.

This marks Sutter’s third pact with FX and Twentieth Century Fox TV. He was a writer on the net’s early signature series, “The Shield,” and this deal allows him to end the show on his terms,

“Sons” recently completed its fourth season and was renwed for a fifth season last October. Now the series will have, at the minimum, six seasons before calling it quits. With Sutter’s deal one year longer than the “Sons” renewal, he would have the option of extending the show through seven seasons.

There was never a question of FX not renewing the successful “Sons,” but it had to wait until Sutter’s deal was complete. The deal allows Sutter to write and produce for other FX skeins, as well as broadcast fare for the studio.
