No matter how many times I turn my TV to FX on Tuesday nights these days, it isnít ever a new episode of Sons of Anarchy. But this totally logical cycle might be changing, as the Sons of Anarchy spinoff is in active development.
After leaving the world of modern crime for a historical saga, TV vet Kurt Sutter is once again heading in a completely different direction for his next project: a comic book. But it sounds so good that it needs to become a TV show immediately.
In Season 6, Sons of Anarchy brought District Attorney Tyne Patterson into the fold, and Kurt Sutter cast the always great CCH Pounder to rain down some legal obstacles on SAMCRO.
Earlier today, the world got the terrible news that Kurt Sutterís latest series The Bastard Executioner will not return for Season 2 in 2016. But the silver lining here is that Sutter is now able to shift his focus back to the Sons of Anarchy universe.
On Tuesday night, FX debuted the violence-heavy new series The Bastard Executioner from violence-heavy creator Kurt Sutter, and while it seemed to me like the show should have brought in mass audiences from all over the map, the initial ratings totals donít seem to reflect that.
In Sons of Anarchy and The Shield before it, audiences got somewhat accustomed to seeing Kurt Sutterís writing take characters to dismally dark places, but those worlds were guided by the loose laws and looser morals of the modern world. In The Bastard Executioner, the main law of the land is kill or be killed, and Sutter screams it from the treetops.
Kurt Sutter's already laying the groundwork for a future Sons of Anarchy spinoff about the Mayans. So will we get to see any characters crossing over between shows?
We can one day live in the world of the Sons of Anarchy mythology again, whenever creator Kurt Sutter gets around to making the previously announced prequel series. Thankfully, heís got a good idea for what itíll be about and how heíll tackle it.†
When the mighty have fallen, everyone else gets to rise up and take the throne. Thatís whatís happening over at FX now, as Sons of Anarchyís ashes are being swept away and replaced by the development of a brand new spinoff series. And SAMCRO isn't at the helm, either.
Kurt Sutter recently shared that putting together his upcoming series The Bastard Executioner was scary in a way that Sons of Anarchy couldnít quite compare to.
Given the massive success of Sons of Anarchy over its seven-season run, it seems like a no-brainer that creator Kurt Sutter would be able to take his creative vision in any direction he wanted. And FX is sticking with him for The Bastard Executioner.
For Sons of Anarchy fans, itís already been a long two months since the series came to its bitter conclusion. Luckily, creator Kurt Sutter has The Bastard Executioner on the way, and it just filled out its cast with True Bloodís Stephen Moyer and 11 more actors.
Of all the creative minds in television that someone can accidentally piss off, Sons of Anarchyís outspoken creator Kurt Sutter should be avoided at all costs. But of all the ways that one can go about accidentally pissing off Kurt Sutter, ruining the finale to his seven-year-strong drama is really the worst way to do it.
Are you kidding me?!? Of all the things that I thought would never happen in Sons of Anarchy, especially this close to the finale, anyoneís ďsurprise guest star roleĒ would have been completely off of my list. And yet Kurt Sutter has defied all odds and done it.
Even though FXís hit drama Sons of Anarchy is coming to an end in a few weeks, creator Kurt Sutter has been busy putting together his next project for the network, the historical pilot The Bastard Executioner, and he's bringing along a couple of people he's worked with in the past.
