"Sons Of Anarchy" Creator Stays Vague About Final Season At Hall H Panel

Unlike a lot of the other panels at SDCC this year, Sons of Anarchy was mostly show and very little tell. That is, fans, who snagged a seat in Hall H, got treated to a trailer for the final season, a prequel announcement and some vague teasers of the character arcs for season 7.

Katey Sagal, Kurt Sutter
Sutter [r] had very few concrete details to reveal at the panel.

SoA will live on after its official end on FX, via a possible prequel (still in early talks) and – here’s something to be excited about – a novelisation, the tentatively titled Bratva. The book will pick up at the end of Season 4, however, creator Kurt Sutter was clear – spinoffs are not on the cards. This isn’t Breaking Bad, after all. According to Sutter, via Deadline, the spinoff route just wouldn’t do justice to Sons of Anarchy.

“There’ll be no spinoffs,” he cut off any speculation. “I think spinoffs work well on procedural dramas, which this clearly is not.”

Which is great, but once he let the panel attendees know what isn’t  going to happen, Sutter and the cast weren’t nearly as eager to reveal anything that is. Speaking in the vaguest terms, he explained our beloved protag, Jax’s storyline. In Season 7, Jax will be “the most proactive our hero has been throughout the entire series… This season he comes out with blinders on, singular in purpose. Rather than being the reactor to chaos, he is the inciter of chaos.”

Charlie Hunnam
Due to a scheduling conflict, Charlie Hunnam was not in attendance.

So… err… that’s something. Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jax, was not on hand to react to the teaser, but Sutter had plenty of company onstage, including Sutter’s real-life wife Katey Sagal, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Theo Rossi, Dayton Callie, David Labrava, Niko Nicotera and Drea de Matteo, as well as EP/Director Paris Barclay.

The seventh and final season of SoA kicks off September 9, with an hour-and-forty-five-minute episode on FX.
