If you base season 6 of “Sons of Anarchy” on everything that we have heard from executive producer Kurt Sutter already, then you would be quick to assume that it is going to be the penultimate year for the show. The creator / executive producer has long said that he has no intentions of running the series longer than season 7, with one of the primary reasons being that he wants to ensure that the show goes out with a band rather than a whimper.
However, there have been some interesting developments as of late that could change things up a little bit: “Sons of Anarchy” season 5 has been its highest-rated yet, and the fans are still as hungry for more from Jax and SAMCRO as ever. So could Sutter possibly consider taking the show to eight seasons? He spoke about it in a conference call with reporters Wednesday, and at least suggested that it is a possibility:
“If I get halfway through season six and discover I can’t tell all the stories I want to tell, I’ll have a conversation with [FX head] John Landgraf. It could be that we would tack additional episodes onto seasons six and seven — or, if there’s enough material, we could go to a season eight.
“The one thing I don’t want to do is extend the show just for the sake of doing another season.”
“Sons of Anarchy” fans are already spoiled in comparison to many other shows, especially when you consider that season 5 already contained a number of extended episodes that caused us to have more than just 13 hour-long installments.
What do you think: should “Sons of Anarchy” end after season 6, or do you possibly think that there is enough story left in this show to squeeze out a possible season 7?
