On March 4 Estarz shared the most recent "WTFSutter" YouTube video from Kurt Sutter and his writers that updates fans weekly on the progress of "Sons of Anarchy" and what fans might be able to expect. This season, Sutter says that there is one big story line he is trying to avoid at all costs because he feels as if it has been over done throughout past seasons.
Sutter claims that he is purposely trying to avoid introducing a new sheriff to Charming because, except for Wade, they all die. Since there is only one season left, and the club and Jax have more than enough to deal with, they don't want to bring that in just to have to kill yet another person off. This season, most everyone will most likely die or go to prison because of how things have progressed throughout the story these past six seasons. To add more people that will have to die seems somewhat senseless.
New law enforcement will be added this season, but they won't really be significant to the story. Perhaps Wade can step in as acting sheriff? There is no telling what kind of trouble SAMCRO can get themselves into without having a sheriff to reign them in.
This season is likely to be an explosive one simply because of the loose ends that have to be tied up from season six. Fans already know that Drea de Matteo is going to be returning from rehab, as a series regular. This takes care of the boys, but Jax's fate is currently hanging in the wind, as is Gemma's since Jax likely won't let her live once he finds out that his mother killed his wife.
So far, there is no set return date for the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" but it will more than likely be in September when all the previous seasons have premiered.
