The new series of television shows Sons of Anarchy, The Simpsons and Glee will play on channels TV3 and FOUR again next year.

MediaWorks, which owns the channels, has announced a new deal with United States studio 20th Century Fox Television to bring the shows here next year.

The deal also includes programmes such as New Girl, Family Guy and the final season of How I Met Your Mother.

All of those shows were previously on TV3 and FOUR, but three new shows will be coming: Robin Williams' comedy, The Crazy Ones, and dramas Crisis and Gang Related.

New Zealand actor Cliff Curtis featured as a gang leader in two episodes of Gang Related.

MediaWorks director of programming Mark Caulton said the agreement provided an exciting opportunity for both parties.

"This is fantastic news for the company, our viewers and our clients.

"This new deal with Fox secures some of the very best international television for TV3 and FOUR audiences, and we couldn't be happier to have reached an agreement that works for both parties.

"We're delighted to have our key Fox shows are back on air, and we head into 2014 in the best possible position to deliver great value to our viewers and commercial clients."
