This show was phenomenal. Any news on a 2nd season? FX is really stepping up their game post SOA. Legion is really good too. They're becoming like another AMC. I think we all have SAMCRO to thank for paving the road.

The second season hasn't been ordered yet, but Hardy is "confident" it will: http://metro.co.uk/2017/03/01/tom-ha...stage-6482400/
Steven Knight, the writer, has teased as many as two additional seasons: http://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-...wo-more-series
And I disagree — we have The Shield to thank. Probably Rescue Me, too. They paved the way for Sons, Justified, AHC, and others.

It goes back further than SOA. The Shield, Rescue Me and Nip/Tuck, I think, are what made room for SOA.
