Kurt Sutter Testing the Waters For ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Prequel Through FX ‘The Bastard Executioner’
“Sons of Anarchy” (SOA) creator Kurt Sutter said he is taking a break from doing the “Sons of Anarchy” prequel in an interview recently. When is he going to do it? Read on for more details.
According to E! News, the 55-year-old series creator said he did not want to start anything related to the series immediately after ending the blockbuster show last year.
“I wanted to give it a couple of years to breathe before we came back to do it,” Sutter told E! News.
Though this may sound bad news for the fans who have been waiting for the “Sons of Anarchy” Prequel; Sutter, however, said he has not forgotten it. He said they, in fact, talked about the prequel and were interested in doing it, only they were just waiting for the right timing.
Everything also depends on since Sutter is busy with his new show, “The Bastard Executioner.” He seemed to be excited in doing it after taking seven seasons with a motorcycle club drama series.
Nevertheless, Sutter’s not letting go of the “Sons of Anarchy” prequel. It was especially with the fact that SoA had the highest rating ever for FX during its third season.
“We’ll see how the next couple of years or at least the next year with [The Bastard Executioner] unfolds and then we’ll have to see,” Sutter said.
Sutter previously revealed the prequel’s setting. He said it’s going to go back during the 1960s, which was during the time when the Vietnam war had its ending.
According to People Magazine, this was also the timeline where the motorcycle club had its founding, starting only with nine members; hence, the moniker “The First 9.” Sutter said there was something intriguing about the origins of the club and to set in the ‘60s would be “cool” for him.
This is an assurance that the “Sons of Anarchy” prequel is happening. Hopefully, it won’t be that too long.
