Sons of Anarchy: FX Announces Seventh (Final) Season, Touts Season Six Finale Ratings

Sons of Anarchy season sevenLast night brought big ratings for FX and the sixth season finale of Sons of Anarchy. With 5.2 million total viewers and 3.5 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic, it was the second-highest rated episode in the show’s history as well as the best-rated season finale.

As part of the FX press release, the cable channel announced that season seven will premiere sometime next fall. While it’s been presumed that there would be a seventh season, I believe this is the first official announcement.

They also referred to season six as the “penultimate 6th season,” an official indication that season seven will be the end of the show.

While Sons of Anarchy is ending next year, there have been some rumblings that creater Kurt Sutter is developing a prequel series that would take place in the 1960s.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Sons of Anarchy? Do you think season seven should be the end? Would you be interested in a prequel?

I loved this show. The characters felt so real. The storyline/plot was well thought out and well written. The writer of this show wanted to leave on top and he did just that. Best of luck on all the SOA characters, writers, directors…

I can’t believe that I finally get into a show and try to catch up on the series with our Roku to end up having the show cancelled. A&E has a habit of doing this I am so surprised FX is now doing the same thing. I hope they change their mind.

SOA was not cancelled, it was always Kurt Sutters (writer/producer) plan for seven seasons
A plan is in the process for a prequel…but it wouldn’t be for a couple years. I think that would be great, it would be about the Original Nine….So all younger actors post Viet Nam era….Beginning of the club…Yep, I am in….

Prequels never do shows justice. I don’t want to see the show end. I was so drawn in that I was sobbing when Opie died and when Able got hurt, kidnapped ,I will miss this intense show. But please leave it as that. Don’t prequel this. There is no way to get the same climax.

I don’t know why the best drama series/action series is ending. I’ve been a loyal viewer from the beginning and will surely miss this show. I would love to see a prequel of this show if it’s done with the same grittiness as the original.

I have only just turned up to this party having just blasted my way through the first 4 seasons in the last 3 weeks with the 5th season already loading up….this show has taken over my life this show CAN’T end if shows lik Supernatural can hit the 10 seaon marker then this one can too.
true there is lots of good telly at the moment but there is Nothing of this calibre pure grittiness and real humour such a fantastic cast and to be really honest i’ve always had a thing for Katey Sagal.
