'Sons of Anarchy' Creator Reveals A Prequel is Coming SOon
Kurt Sutter reveals his plans for a Sons of Anarchy prequel.In an interview with Deadline about his new series, FX's The Bastard Executioner (which premieres on September 15), the Sons of Anarchy creator reveals his plans on a Sons of Anarchy sequel, prequel and the new series. During the interview Kurt Sutter gave an update on the rumored Sons of Anarchy prequel, which should not be confused with a spinoff about the Mayans. At some point I do have plans to hopefully do the prequel, he said, which I do see as a one-off 10- or 12-episode thing where we begin in Nam and see John Teller and Piney and see how that relationship got created, and bring them back to the States and the obvious external dynamics that were going on with the country and the perception of the war and what an odd kind of perception these vets got when they returned home. As for the Mayans series:
[FX executive Eric Schrier and I> were talking about the idea of doing things for other markets, like the Spanish-speaking market. I casually said Id be open to doing something with the Mayans. Its the same [biker] subculture, but itd be interesting to see the influences of that culture and how it impacts the subculture we already understand. I would do a contemporary piece, not a prequel, and place it far enough away from Northern California that it wouldnt step on the mythology thats already been told. It doesnt mean that there couldnt be some cool, ironic crossovers with familiar characters as the series progressed. I wouldnt want to set it too close to the world we already know, and step on that My intent is, over the hiatus Ill initiate a script for the pilot and take it from there. (Via)FX seems like they are heavily invested in Kurt Sutter and Sutter's creative aspirations. But, they rightfully should. Sons of Anarchy has received very favorable reviews over the course of its run, with many singling out Katey Sagal's performance. On the review aggregator website Metacritic, the first season scored 68/100, the second season scored 86/100, the third season scored 84/100, the fourth season scored 81/100, the fifth and sixth season scored 72/100.
