Kurt Sutter has been planning spin-offs for long
Six years after Jax Teller and his biker gang left us, Kurt Sutter opened up about his vision for two new spin-offs. ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ held an iconic status among fans for demonstrating complex relationships and characters. The original show ended with Jax Teller, the leader of the biker club, meeting his death. We see Jax’s son Abel putting on the ‘Son’ ring, and the viewers are now intrigued to finding out more about the future of Jax’s family.
Let’s Play Quiz: What Sons Of Anarchy Character Are You?
The show’s prequel ‘Mayans M.C’ focuses on the rival gang of the “Sons”, which later becomes their ally. According to creator Kurt Sutter, he had always planned for two more spin-offs. He shared in a recent Twitter post his vision of making a sequel of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ that would deal with Jax’s family, and yet another prequel that would tell the history of the gang in form of a miniseries. He wrote, “I had this revelation between Sons of Anarchy and Mayans. That the SoA mythology would be 4 shows. Sons of Anarchy, Mayans MC, First Nine and Sam Crow. First Nine would be a limited series. Nine episodes. It would end before we began to tread on history we created in Son. Sam Crow would be the fate of Wendi, Nero, Abel and Thomas”.
Sutter has a vision for the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ spin-offs
We know for certain that Sutter did not just come up with this idea. He has had a dream, right from the start of the show, and he is getting closer to it. Sutter has always envisioned the show as a saga and we are not arguing against that. About two years ago, Sutter told Tom Arnold, “I have a sense of ‘Sons’ being four chapters. If ‘Sons’ was the first chapter then I see the Mayans as the second chapter. It’s present day, it’s after the death of Jax Teller”.
Sutter also opened up about the contemplated prequel and sequel of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ that is part of his “dream quartet”. Sutter said, “The First 9 — it would begin in Vietnam with John Teller and Piney Winston and it would be about them coming back to America … I don’t want to step on the mythology that we know but we kind of lay track to the beginning and then stop”.
He also provided some insight into what his vision of the sequel holds. He said, “Perhaps … there might be a series of events that takes us down the line into the future that perhaps sets up some kind of dynamic for Jax’s sons to become aware of who his dad was and things like that. That for me is the dream quartet if you will”.
Is Charlie Hunnam up for reprising his role?
As excited as the fans are about the possibility of the sequel of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, Charlie Hunnam has no intention of coming back as Jax Teller. Jax Teller met his end, and even though he could be brought back using the flashback technique, Hunnam is not interested in that. He told “Entertainment Tonight”, “I have his cut [leather vest] and, you know, people have been to my house and asked if they could try it on and I [say] ‘No one will ever put that cut on again’ and ‘We got to respect that dude. He’s not with us anymore.’ So I would never bring him back from the dead for something like that … It was seven years of my life. He sort of became sacred to me”.
In spite of Sutter’s post, there is no certainty about the sequel yet. His Twitter post stated, “I can’t discuss my current situation with Fox, so right now I can’t comment on the reality of any of this happening.”
Until then, we have ‘Mayans M.C’ and endless binge nights to fall back on.
