Amid fans requesting for more seasons and a revival of the Kurt Sutter’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’, recent reports have suggested that the hit show is set to make a comeback.
Ever since the first season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ released on September 3, 2008, on the cable network FX in the United States, it became a top favourite among fans who swear by this iconic gang of bikers who lives by Jax Teller’s code.
- It’s confirmed! ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is set to return
- Will Disney and Kurt Sutter team up for the spin-offs?
- Plot and release date of ‘First 9’
Latest reports suggest that FX/Disney has picked up the show to produce more seasons perhaps because it is evident that the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ universe has more stories to tell.
However, the original creator of the show may not continue to be a part of the show that ran for seven seasons and wrapped up six years ago on December 9, 2014. Intriguing, right? Here’s everything you need to know about the top-rated show’s potential comeback.

It’s confirmed! ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is set to return
Stories from the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ universe will finally see the light of the day again. If media reports are to be believed, the show will return either as a spin-off, sequel, or a prequel of the original story.
During the coronavirus lockdown, creator Sutter took to his social media to tease the possibility of more stories from the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ universe. Responding to one of the fan queries, he said that there will be two more shows, ‘First 9’ and ‘Sam Crow’.
Explaining the plotline of the former, he said that ‘First 9’ will revolve around the original nine members of the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ motorcycle club and will be a limited series.
During his Instagram live, at one point, the creator said,
“I had this realization between SOA and Mayans that the SOA mythology would be four shows”. He added, “Sons of Anarchy, Mayans MC, First 9, and Sam Crow”.
Will Disney and Kurt Sutter team up for the spin-offs?
Sutter has continued to maintain that FX/Disney has more of a say in what happens to the future seasons of ‘Sons of Anarchy’.
In an interview, the show’s creator admitted that he really didn’t want to do another motorcycle club show after ‘Sons of Anarchy’. Apart from that, there have also been reports suggesting that Sutter didn’t get along with the new ownership at Disney.
In addition, his removal from FX after his beef with FX/Disney may have also affected his work on the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ spin-off, ‘Mayans M.C’. Besides, there’s a good chance that the show ‘Mayans M.C’ may also come to an end given he will no longer be working on the series.
But, having said that, he also teased the possibility of him being signed again as the creator for the upcoming seasons. Sutter said that the relationship with Fox/Disney was “in flux,” and only time and a “shift in attitude” could result in the prequel being made.
In an interview, he said,
“As of now, the possibility of doing that doesn’t look that hopeful. It’s their property. They’re not going to let me take it somewhere else”, Sutter said, when asked about ‘First 9’. “Right now, that relationship is in flux. With time and a shift in attitude, will we be able to do it? I don’t know. Hopefully. Maybe.”
Considering all that’s going on, it’s fair to assume that there’s a possibility that Sutter may not return to tell more stories of these shows and that Disney may seek a new writer to come on board.
Plot and release date of ‘First 9’
‘First 9′ would focus on the original members of the motorcycle club after they came home from Vietnam. It may all make perfect sense if you recall that there were so many references to Vietnam in ‘Sons of Anarchy’.
‘First 9’, which will be set in the 1960s, will feature John Teller, the father of lead character Jax Teller played by Charlie Hunnam.
Meanwhile, the focus for the other show titled ‘Sam Crow’ would be the fate of Wendi, Nero, Abel, and Thomas.
Sutter has also shared that although the series is already in the making, no official date has been decided for the release of the prequel or spin-off.
