FX’s Sons of Anarchy talented creator Kurt Sutter has revealed what his plans were for Jax (super-hunk Charlie Hunnam) and the rest of the SAMCRO crew in the final season. After the events of season 6, Jax will find himself riding solo in the final season.
“It really is Jax completely untethered and on his own in the final season,” Sutter said. “It would be difficult to rid of characters like Tig and Juice and Chibs, especially with Opie gone. They feel like family to people. You have to be very careful not to be arbitrary in terms of who lives and who dies.”
The show has not been kind to many of its characters, often killing off some of the most important ones. With both Clay (Ron Perlman) and Tara (Maggie Siff) being killed off in season 6, the show proved that no one was safe in Charming. Sutter has also revealed some of the cast he expects to return for the final season of SOA. In addition to stars Hunnam and Katey Sagal (who plays Gemma), season 7 will at least see the return of Jimmy Smits as Nero and Peter Weller as Charles Barosky.
He also said that he intends on bringing back CCH Pounder, who plays Tyne Patterson, though the actress is signed on for a starring role in the new CBS drama NCIS: New Orleans.
Sons of Anarchy season 7 premieres in fall 2014 on FX, though the network has not yet announced an official air date.
