Season 6 of “Sons of Anarchy” left us with a tragic ending that still has fans grieving. With season 7 still a ways off (Fall 2014), it was interesting to read International Business Times’ Jan. 20 report on show creator Kurt Sutter’s plans for a SAMCRO prequel series.
Sutter is cooking up plans for a prequel that would be set around the time of the Vietnam War. It would center on the founding of the “Sons of Anarchy” Motorcycle Club. Fans would get to see how the feud between the young John Teller and Clay Murrow came to be.
FX has expressed interest in the spin-off, according to Sutter. "Now that FX has expanded and they're looking at doing standalone seasons and miniseries, I think it's probably a lot more viable than it was a few years ago."
Sutter is up for the challenge even if it means the project is 12-episode standalone series. He is intrigued by the idea of doing a period piece. Though he admits the show would have a different energy, he believes fans would “plug into it.”
Season 7 is the end for the “Sons of Anarchy” and Sutter is looking forward to taking a break. He foresees a 1 or 2 season break before work starts on the prequel series.
When season 7 returns, Jax will be a changed man, having lost his “true north” when wife Tara died and following the death of his lifelong BFF Opie. Drea de Matteo is returning as a series regular in her role as Jax’s ex-wife.
"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 returns in the fall of 2014. Until then, check back often for more news and updates.
