By Deborah Kim,

The Sons of Anarchy will be wreaking havoc on the roads once more.

The Deadbolt reported FX renewed the show for a fifth season, Monday.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise. After all, the biker drama is the network's highest-rated series ever and is basic cable's top scripted drama.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show's fourth season is averaging 5.8 million viewers, 3.9 million of whom are of the coveted 18-49 demographic, per episode. The finale is set to air November 29.

“Everyone at FX is very grateful to Kurt Sutter, his many writing, directing and producing collaborators and his masterful cast for making such a compelling and beautifully crafted show,” the network's president, Jon Landgraf said.

“It is no small challenge to bring the themes of a great, ancient play like Hamlet into a wholly original television setting and to tell this complex story in a way that is both riveting and accessible to a broad audience.”

There are seven episodes left in the fourth season. Catch Sons of Anarchy Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
