When Kurt Sutter teased ‘Sons of Anarchy’ sequel
“I had this realization between SOA and Mayans. That the SOA mythology would be four shows”, Sutter wrote on social media.
This led fans to believe that their beloved ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is expanding its universe. The biker gang drama has more stories to explore. In the blockbuster grand finale of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, Jax settled all of the club’s debts in stunning fashion before giving his own life. He asked Wendi (Drea de Matteo) to raise his boys thinking their father was a criminal, a murderer.
Jax wanted his sons to become law-abiding citizens. In the fourth series, one of his sons might find his way into the notorious club.
Disney puts a hurdle in the expansion of the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ universe
It is important to recall that Disney had fired Sutter from Mayans MC. The co-creator Elgin James is alone working on the series. It is highly unlikely that Disney will sell the intellectual property rights of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, which is the only way he can pursue a sequel. The series remains one of FX’s most popular dramas and has been highly profitable for the studio.
But Kurt Sutter expressed hopes for the sequel and the prequel series saying, “At this time, the prospects are not looking great, I don’t own the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ IP, Fox/Disney does. But I never say never”.
Fans are disappointed with Disney not letting Kurt pursue his dream project. But they are excited with the fact that Sutter is open to the idea of making a sequel if the opportunity presents itself. Fans are planning to run a campaign urging Disney to sell IP rights of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ to Kurt.
What Sons Of Anarchy Character Are You? (Quiz)
Charlie Hunnam as Jax in the upcoming projects
The question everyone is asking is, of course, whether or not Hunnam will return as Jax. Charlie Hunnam’s character gave his life at the end of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, so he can only return in the prequel segment.
Even in the sequel series, he can be incorporated in the series by the means of flashbacks. Mayans MC followed this strategy.
But the sad fact, according to “Cinema Blend”, is that the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star confessed that he is not keen on reprising the role of Jax. He revealed that he is way past Jax and gave the character an emotional farewell when the series ended. On being asked about Charlie’s return as Jax Teller, he admitted, “No, no … I had the deepest experience of my career coming out of that. I had become that character, had become so deeply integrated into who I was, I literally didn’t realize until the day we wrapped and we put him to rest and I felt I went through a period of two or three weeks of, like, real bereavement”.
The hope remains…
But, fans don’t need to lose hope on Charlie’s return because most of the actors make such statements and return when the opportunity is given. He is aware of the fact that fans are crazy about him. Charlie, surely won’t let his fans down.
The third season of ‘Mayans MC’ is scheduled to premiere later this year. The pandemic situation might delay the premiere. Fans can stream all the seasons of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ on the video streaming platform Hulu.
We need to wait for some more time to get final updates on the sequel and prequel projects. Till then write to us in the comments box below whether you want another segment for ‘Sons of Anarchy’.
