The Left Hand of the Son of Coul

I know you need the seo, but the headline is slightly misleading. Purcell says he's got one more year which is next year and there is no indication yet that s8 will be oked. We've all seen actors reupp contracts after saying differently and it's frankly too early to say Purcell is done next year.
