Sutter Talks “Sons of Anarchy” Prequel Series

Still the biggest series in the FX network’s history, motorcycle gang drama “Sons of Anarchy” ran for seven seasons on the network before finishing up a few years ago. At last report creator Kurt Sutter was working on a spin-off called “Mayans MC” which was announced recently when the project scored a pilot order.

Today, Sutter has spoken about another potential one – this one to be a prequel which would revisit the days of the nine members who formed the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club following their return from Vietnam.

This would include several characters seen on the show such as John Teller, the dead father of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), but he adds it wouldn’t be an ongoing series but rather a one-shot, limited series. Talking on the Honest Pretty Much podcast, Sutter says:

“We’ll find a way to shine a little light on perhaps John Teller’s manuscript, if we’re lucky enough to continue. And then what I would do is, not directly, but I would use that as a potential launching point to do the prequel.

That to me is a one off, it’s like ten episodes – it’s not a series. And whether we do that in between seasons on Mayans I’m not sure, but that would sort of happen tangentially to that… It would begin in Vietnam with John Teller and Piney Winston and it would be about them coming back to America. Ideally to do each episode have a new member join… Maybe at that point Gemma’s there but it’s before Jax is born.”

The pilot for “Mayans MC” is currently slated to begin filming in March with Sutter helming the episode.
