Series creator Kurt Sutter, in his latest WTF Sutter webisode, says he has “inquired” about expanding the show’s seventh and final season beyond the usual 13 episodes. However, “many factors” — such as the FX hit’s rising licensing fee — could prohibit such an extension, by making extra episodes not very cost-effective, he explains.

Besides, Sutter reckons, many of last season’s episodes ran over (or well over) an hour, equaling out to “three to four” extra episodes’ worth of material. And while he seems inclined to indulge in such excess again during the drama’s swan song, Sutter says, “I’m really trying to do my very best” to stick to a 60-minute running time.

    I am curious of the total death count in season 6 finale episode? It has to be huge I cant seem to locate it anywhere. Any one have a clue?

  6. Roberta says:

    Extra episode(s) would be great. What about a spin off show?

  7. Keith says:

    Where can we get the season 6 episodes on dvd? I need the whole season, not just parts.

    • loneeagle says:

      Wal-Mart & amazon dot com has the dvds. SOA will be back Sept 6th or 9th this fall, I saw it on the net somewhere last week.

  8. Jason says:

    Season 7 has been great I myself would love to watch more episodes as its the only show my wife and I look forward to watching. I do hope there is more s.o.a in the future as Thomas and Able are grown up and take over the club. This would be amazing.

    • loneeagle says:

      Now there’s a noble idea concerning Thomas and Able. Last week episode was probably the most dramatic and emotional episodes I’ve seen so far, I missed the first 4 seasons smh. Since I started watching the show, I’ve seen more left turns than a Nascar race. You think you have it scoped out for the next week or season and outta no where, left turn ! Its gonna be interesting to see how Jax handles Gemma’s involvement with Juice. Could there be a serious “relationship” with the new Sheriff an Chibbs or will it be a casual or complicated thing?? Will Gemma an Nero cut an run to Mexico and will Jax self destruct in an “accident” calm the demons he is wrestling with??
