FX has horror and it has Kurt Sutter, but what about a series that combines both? That may be in the future for the cable network. The Sons of Anarchy creator has reportedly locked in a deal to develop a horror-drama for the network, along with Hell on Wheels' John Shiban.
We've known for a while now that Sons of Anarchy was a go for a sixth season and likely a seventh as well. Considering the series is currently amidst its fifth season, those of us who look forward to each new episode can rest easy knowing there's plenty more to come. But from what star Charlie Hunnam says, an eighth season may be a possibility!
Those who watched last night's episode of Sons of Anarchy know that "Laying Pipe" marked the end of the road for one of the main characters on the FX biker drama. Series creator Kurt Sutter spoke with the press today on a conference call to discuss the character death and what it means for the series in general. If you haven't seen Sons of Anarchy's "Laying Pipe" episode yet, stop reading now! Major spoilers ahead!
Kurt Sutter's known for his dark and gritty motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy on FX. But how would the SoA showrunner handle a comedy series? We may find out if things go well for the show he's developing for FX, titled Diva. Clown. Killer.. This news had me at Sutter, but the words "clown" and "killer" don't hurt either.
Sons of Anarchy regained some of its narrative steam last season, putting the somewhat unfocused during the overseas action of season three. That was a relief, because when the show is firing on all cylinders, it can be thoroughly engrossing television. The show is set to return for season 5 this September, and in the mean time show creator Kurt Sutter has dropped a few hints as to the show's long-term future and who will survive to see it.
Given how things ended for the fourth season of Sons of Anarchy, fans of the FX drama series have much to look forward to when the series returns this fall for Season 5. Production is underway for the FX drama, and series creator Kurt Sutter has given fans a small glimpse of what's in the works. Check out the photos ahead.
Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires Preview: Sons Of Anarchy Creator's New Series Premieres On Discovery In May
The characters on the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy know a thing or two about crime rings. The men of SAMCRO dabble in various activities, some not entirely legal, as a means of income. Sons creator Kurt Sutter is apparently looking to branch out on the subject of crime rings, this time for an unscripted series for Discovery called Outlaw Empires. The six-part series will tell the stories of the most notorious crime rings in the United States.
While it still seems like we have an eternity to wait for the fifth season of Sons of Anarchy, we now have a few tidbits about what’s ahead to think over, thanks to what Kurt Sutter shared at PaleyFest last night. This includes talk of a prequel series, which could be in the cards at some point down the line.
The reworked deal will now ensure Sons of Anarchy gets a sixth season, which is good news for fans of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, or at least their storylines. Sutter’s new deal will has been signed for three years, and will also give Sutter credentials with the network beyond what Nielsen ratings are telling network heads—although, right now, those Nielsen ratings are probably speaking pretty well of the show.
One of the loose ends left to dangle in the wind on Sons of Anarchy last season is the matter of Juice. Theo Rossi’s character was up to no good during Season 4 of the series and while part of that was resolved through a conversation with Chibs, but Juice still has a couple of major secrets and from the sound of it, that will be addressed at some point in the series’ future.
If you caught last night’s episode of Sons of Anarchy then you know that the series took a couple of major turns last night. Lines were crossed and there may not be any turning back. Enough with the idioms, though. Let’s talk about next week!
Early last month, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter tweeted (as he so often does) that the thirteenth episode of Season 4 was “HUGE." He went on to say, "Literally, it's like 112 pages right now.” I know I wasn’t alone in hoping this would result in a supersized finale, as opposed to Sutter having to cut 75 pages from the script, as mentioned in his tweet. As good fortune would have it, we’re not getting a bulked up finale, we’re getting a whole extra episode!
Kurt Sutter’s known for speaking up and speaking his mind when something’s bothering him and in the case of the Fox/DirecTV carriage dispute, which could result in DirecTV subscribers losing FX and thus, losing yet-to-air episodes of Sutter’s excellent drama series Sons of Anarchy it’s unsurprising that the showrunner is weighing in on the subject.
The men of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club may face an uncertain future as turmoil both internal and external threatens to tear the club apart, but at least they don't have to worry about being left on a cliffhanger this year. Six episodes into a season that has seen the show's ratings increasing, FX has officially ordered a fifth season of Sons of Anarchy.
After an outstanding second season, Sons of Anarchy’s third season wobbled a bit. The initial plotline of Jax’s kidnapped baby was a solid launching point, and the club’s trip overseas and interactions with the IRA were interesting, but the season seemed to lose focus during its middle. Now we’re only a week away from the fourth season Sons premiere, and an extended trailer for the show has popped up online, giving us a better look at what’s to come.
