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.
