Showrunner Kurt Sutter Talks SONS OF ANARCHY Season 5 Finale, Season 6, and Whether Season 7 Will Really Be the Last

     December 6, 2012


The hit FX drama Sons of Anarchy has just wrapped up its fifth season with the series’ most-watched finale, ever.  With loyalties in question and the fate of more than one character undetermined, it will certainly be interesting to see where the characters are headed next season.

To discuss where things were left at the end of this season and to look ahead to Season 6, show creator/executive producer/writer Kurt Sutter, who also directed the finale, did this interview about where Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is at mentally, what’s to come for Gemma (Katey Sagal), what Clay’s (Ron Perlman) role will be now, the fractures that exist in SAMCRO, the condition Otto (also played by Sutter) is now in, whether Donal Logue and Jimmy Smits will return, his plan to still end the show in seven seasons (unless he feels he can’t fully tell the story he wants to, in that time), and that he’ll return to the writers room for Season 6 in February.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

kurt-sutterQuestion:  You have such a rabid fan base that goes into such deep detail on the show.  How important is it for you to focus on all of the little things, when you’re creating a character and designing a scene?

KURT SUTTER:  All that stuff is really important to me.  In fact, I’m really tyrannical with the little details of the show, in terms of costume and set design and transpo of the bikes.  I’ve done a lot of research on the subculture and I have a really pretty solid working knowledge of how these guys live.  I feel, by rooting it in all of those really rich small details, what that then allows me to do is tell much bigger, epic, dramatic stories.  I feel that if I can root it firmly in the reality of the subculture, with all the grittiness of it and all the fine details of it being true and accurate, it just gives me a lot more freedom to then push the boundaries on the realities of the stories and their circumstances.  That’s always been very important to me, from the beginning.  We’re a pretty well-oiled machine now, in how we get it all done.  Just choosing the crucifix for Episode 10 was at least a dozen conversations with me looking at about 30 or 40 different crosses.  All that stuff is really important. 

When you have a season like this, where you have a major death early on, is it difficult to then build to a season finale that lives up to those earlier moments?

SUTTER:  Yeah, it’s always a challenge doing something larger, in the beginning.  I really wanted to do that with Opie (Ryan Hurst).  I didn’t want to drag it out and have people not see it coming because of bad execution, but because of the natural progression of the world.  I really wanted it to be shocking and come as a complete surprise, and knock the wind out of, not only the audience, but the club, as well.  What I was able to do with the death of Opie was not so much worry about having the rest of the season be a let-down, but what it gave me was such a life-altering circumstance for my hero that it really allowed me to accelerate his journey.  We had to force Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) hand to see what kind of leader he was going to become.  The death of Opie was such an unsettling event that allowed me to accelerate the emotionality of that journey, so we could organically push Jax to the edge to see what kind of man and what kind of leader he was going to become.  So, in that way, it opened up my story possibilities, rather than hinder them. 

sons of anarchy Jimmy SmitsThe door was certainly left open for Donal Logue and Jimmy Smits to return next season.  Will that happen?

SUTTER:  I can definitely tell you that Donal will be back.  We’ve made a deal with Donal for a total of 10 episodes, so far.  I think he was in two or three this year, so I know we definitely have him locked up for seven or eight next season, and most likely it will be more than that.  What we usually do is make a minimum deal with an actor, and then, if we need them, we can do more.  But yeah, I believe that character will be a big character next season, and probably the most dangerous threat that the club’s ever had, just in terms of a guy with law enforcement weight and credentials, or connections.  And yet, because he’s retired, he does not have the legal handcuffs or morality hurdles that maybe some of our other law enforcement members have had.  And with a guy like Donal, who’s just really fun to work with and such a great actor, we have a lot of places we can go with him.  I would love to bring Jimmy Smits back.  I think Jimmy adds such a gravitas to the show with his experience.  I loved bringing that new culture into the show with his Latino past.  Mixing that energy into our world is really fascinating for me.  I love the relationship that’s going on with he and Gemma (Katey Sagal).  I would love to bring Jimmy back.  We left it open-ended because I wasn’t sure on his availability.  I feel like there’s enough emotional weight on the table and enough relationship weight on the table for us to continue that storyline, and yet I was careful not to pin any major story arc to his character, just in case that couldn’t happen.  But, I think we’re in the process right now of figuring out Jimmy’s availability, in trying to make that work. 

Did you have Otto bite off his own tongue to write yourself out of the show?

SUTTER:  It was my way of writing myself out of having to learn dialogue.  If Otto comes back, it will just be grunts and me scribbling shit on paper. 

As one of the most shocking moments from the finale, were you eager to play that scene out?

donal-logue-sons-of-anarchySUTTER:  When I pitched that, everyone just laughed at me.  And then, we got to the end and, as Donal Logue’s character says, it was my way of Otto committing.  I didn’t know if we’d actually get a chance to do it.  We joked about it.  But then, we got to the finale and there was an opportunity for us to organically play it out.  I thought, with a guy who’s as fucked up and damaged as Otto, what better way to say, “I’m not talking,” than literally removing the organ that articulates speech. 

How does Otto biting his tongue off actually prevent him from testifying, when he can just write things down?

SUTTER:  I think he’s such a damaged soul, psychologically and emotionally, at this point.  It was really symbolic.  It was him telling the club and him telling the authorities, “You’re not going to fucking get a word out of me!”  It was him basically saying, “I won’t be talking,” and sending that message to the club.   

In terms of Gemma, how do you find the balance between her being completely despicable while also having viewers root for her relationship with Nero (Jimmy Smits)?

SUTTER:  It’s always a fine balance with any of our three major characters – Jax, Gemma and Clay (Ron Perlman).  That trilogy are such strong familial characters that have won the hearts of the audience, and yet they live in this very dangerous, dark world and have to make decisions, all the time.  Some of those decisions are really bad and reprehensible decisions.  It’s always difficult, trying to find that balance.  What I try to let be my guide is the story.  I’d like to think that things happen organically and they’re never forced, one way or the other, in terms of trying to manipulate a reaction from the audience.  I mean this in the most flattering way, but Gemma is just a fucking cockroach.  She’s just hard to kill.  She was really adrift, at the beginning of this season.  She was fucked up.  She hit a bottom and she crawled her way back up, making some really defining decisions.  My intent for her, at the end of the season, was for her to have her balls back, and I think we got there, at the end of the finale.  It’s hard to cheer that on, but at the very least, there’s that sense of, “Fuck, man, she always lands on her feet.”  Her justification is always, “I’m taking care of my family.”  That’s what allows her, in her mind, to do the things that she needs to do.  But, it’s definitely a fine line. 

The plotting on this show is always so dense and detailed.  How much lee-way do you give yourself, in case a storyline doesn’t work or you come up with a different idea?

SUTTER:  What I tend to do is come in with a blueprint, in the beginning of the season, and sit down with my writers and lay out what I want to do for the season, but it’s a loose blueprint.  The more I do this and the more confident I get with the show, in terms of the stories that we tell, I’ve really been able to hold onto them a little more loosely, each season.  My grip gets a little looser, as the mythology progresses.  That was the case, this season.  I had these ideas, and we started writing towards those ideas, but if something happens organically, in the process of telling a story, and something else comes along and we want to play it out and we have the room to do that, or if I see something that’s popping on screen, in terms of a relationship or conflict that’s taking on a much more compelling quality then I thought it was going to be, I’ll throw some energy or story at that.  So, I have some lee-way.  Then, at a certain point, usually in the back four or five episodes, your lee-way really starts to diminish.  It’s not that you have to start writing to tie everything up in neat stories, but I do have the reality of having a certain amount of time left in the season to tell these stories.  So, as time progresses and the episodes pass, that doorway gets a little more narrow.  

After Tara’s (Maggie Siff) arrest, where would you say Jax is mentally, going into the next season?

SUTTER:  I really wanted to get to a place where perhaps Jax realizes that he’s better at being an outlaw than he is at being a husband and a father.  There’s an allure that comes with power and prestige that he wasn’t aware of, or maybe was aware of, but didn’t necessarily have to make a decision about.  As much as he said he wanted to leave, perhaps he wasn’t really ready to leave.  So, the intent was to have this very successful, although bloody and tumultuous and painful, run as president of the club, but ultimately have all that stuff come out almost flawlessly.  The way he maneuvered the execution of Pope (Harold Perrineau), he pulled that off like a Spec Ops solider.  All of that stuff went flawlessly and was incredibly smart.  While all of that was going on, on the outlaw side, all the stuff with his family was essentially falling apart.  He couldn’t keep any promises to Tara.  Everything was a false promise.  The bottom fell out of everything.  So, at the end of it, he does one incredibly well and one incredibly bad.  There’s the idea of, “Maybe I’m supposed to be doing this, and not be doing that.”  I’m not saying that’s where we’re ultimately going to be, but in this moment, there is a sense of, “I’m completely successful, on the one hand, and yet I’ve completely failed at this other thing.  Maybe I’m just supposed to be doing the thing I’m good at.”  That’s really where I wanted to have Jax land, at the end. 

katey sagal Jimmy Smits-sons of anarchyWill Drea de Matteo return?

SUTTER:  I’d love to bring back Drea.  Drea got a pilot, so it will remain to be seen if that gets picked up.  That’s always a tricky thing.  Sometimes networks and shows are open to having an actor step out and do some episodes, but some aren’t.  But, I definitely think there’s more story to be told, with that character.  I love where we went with it, this season.  The timing felt right.  It felt really organic.  I think Drea had a lot of fun, having some bones and meat to chew on again, with that character.  I would definitely love to bring her back.  I definitely have more story to tell there.  We’ll just have to find out her availability, as we get into next season. 

What will Clay’s role be now, in the coming seasons?

SUTTER:  At the end of this season, when August (Billy Brown) tells his guy, “I want him dead before the hearing,” I really wanted to give the sense that there’s a death nail for Clay.  He’s really a dead man walking, or in this case, a dead man riding between lots of black men.  I really wanted to set it up so that Jax was successful in his death by proxy option that he’s chosen for Clay.  How that will play out exactly, I’m not sure yet.  Whether or not Clay will make it through Season 6, I’m not sure.  There’s definitely some more story to tell, in terms of the mythology.  What I don’t want to do is get into another situation where it’s another almost death of Clay.  I think that is very unsatisfying.  I’m not quite sure where Clay’s end date will be, but I do think it ultimately has to be near.  But, there is still some more story to tell. 

Now that Clay is off to prison and Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) has turned in his VP patch, will you be exploring how that fractures the club?

SUTTER:  Part of the tragedy for me is that the writers had this checklist for Jax, in the beginning of the season, of things that he wanted, which included getting out of the drug business, getting out of the cartel business, getting rid of RICO, and having Clay get his payback.  He had all these things he needed to do, and he methodically and brilliantly achieved all those goals this season, but at the end of it, the fall-out came on the personal side of that.  Both families are now in shambles.  He has a club that has no more external pressures, he’s gotten rid of the RICO case, he has this relationship with Eli (Rockmond Dunbar) so that there’s also no pressure in town, he’s gotten out of the drug and gun business, he has this new business that’s making money and there’s Charming Heights, and yet the club itself is in complete shambles.  His inner circle is really reduced to two guys now.  Bobby was the last voice of reason, and Bobby turning into that VP patch is not that he’s leaving the club, but he’s saying, “I can’t do this job because you won’t let me do this job.”  The club has all these new opportunities and it’s ready to flourish, so part of Jax’s job next season will really be about, now that he’s removed all the external things, how will he fix it from the inside. 

donal-logue-kurt-sutter-sons-of-anarchyAre there any relationships that you’re looking forward to fleshing out, in the coming seasons, now that the dynamics are shifting?

SUTTER:  Yeah, I think there’s a lot to play out in what will happen with Bobby and Jax next year.  I really think a major relationship will be between Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Jax.  Chibs has become his Opie now.  He’s his main guy and his loyal dude, and there will be a lot to play out there.  Is Chibs capable of maintaining that level of loyalty, as Jax goes on this darker journey?  Will he then be burdened to be the guy that has the voice of reason, and what does that mean for their relationship?  I think the main relationships that will be played out, will be with Jax and Chibs, and then also with Jax and Bobby.     

How involved are you with the casting process for this show?

SUTTER:  I’m pretty much involved.  The first couple of seasons I did, but since I brought on Paris Barclay, I’m not in the physical auditions anymore.  If I’m meeting for a major role, then I’ll sit down with actors.  I sat down with Jimmy Smits, Harold Perrineau and Donal Logue.  At that point, you’re not really making them read or audition.  It’s more of a creative discussion about whether or not it’s a good fit.  But, in terms of the day players, what will happen is that they’ll do a general audition with Paris, my line producer and my fantastic casting director, along with whoever the writer and producer is on the episode.  And then, they’ll do callbacks and I’ll usually get their top three or four picks with their recommendations.  The director is in on those auditions, and I’ll get the first and second choice of the director.  I would say 70% of the time, I’ll go with the director’s choice.  Sometimes I’ll see something in an actor that I feel is not right because I know where the story is going, and then I’ll make a different choice than the director.  That’s my involvement.  I’m pretty much plugged in to every actor that is in the show.

sons-of-anarchy-season-5-posterAre you still set with the plan to end this show after seven seasons?

SUTTER:  Season 7 was always my goal because I know how this cable model works.  I know, at the end of seven seasons, the above-the-line costs usually outweigh the value of the show.  I thought, “Can I tell this story in seven seasons?  Do I have enough story?”  I’ve always had that number in my head and I thought, “Yes, I can do that.”  I had the loose constructs of those seven seasons in my head, and I still had those.  We’re still heading in that direction and working towards that.  But, if I get half way through Season 6 and I’m feeling like, “I don’t know if I’m going to be able to do this and tell the story that I need to tell in seven seasons,” then I think I can probably have a conversation with John Landgraf.  I don’t know what the solution would be.  Perhaps the solution would be to extend the amount of episodes in the last two seasons, or determine if there was enough story to do a Season 8 and see if that would be viable or if we could even afford to do that.  What I definitely don’t want to do is just extend the show for another season, for the sake of doing an eighth season.  What I don’t want to do is pad and fluff and pull and drag shit out that really should be happening in seven seasons, for the sake of just doing another season, even though I’m sure the fans would love another season.  I know I don’t want to do that.  My sense is that, when I get half way through the storytelling of Season 6, I’ll have a pretty good sense of whether or not I can tie it all up in seven seasons. 

Will you take a breather, before you start writing Season 6?

SUTTER:  I have a little downtime.  I’ve sold two other projects to FX, so I’m co-writing one project and writing a pilot, over the hiatus.  That’s always fun for me to do because it’s my own schedule.  And then, I’ll jump back in with the Sons writers in early February for Season 6. 

Could you ever have expected the level of success you’d have with Sons of Anarchy, or has it been a complete surprise?

SUTTER:  It’s always a surprise.  The first thing you hope for is that the show is actually going to get on the air, and then you hope that the show will actually stay on the air.  All of that is a blessing.  We’re all really thrilled and surprised that the show has had its best season ever, in the fifth season.  That’s pretty rare.  Not that I’m comparing my show, in terms of quality, to these shows because I’m not, but there are shows like The Wire and Friday Night Lights that maintained that level of quality and level of interest, five seasons deep, and we’ve been able to do that.  I have to give a tremendous amount of credit to the digital availability of this show.  We didn’t have that luxury with The Shield.  We didn’t have Netflix or iTunes or Amazon Instant.  If people wanted to catch up, they had to buy the DVD.  So, I think the success of that growing fan base is, in large part, due to the accessability of those previous seasons.  Because the quality of the show is good, I think those people who watch the previous seasons are then interested in seeing what’s to come.  So many people catch up with this show, not just on DVR, but through those outside sources, and we sell a tremendous amount of DVDs, in what is an ever-shrinking market.  So, I have to say that that is probably the reason why the numbers continue to explode, from season to season, and we continue to add fans, every year.  I can only hope that that continues. 

Sons of Anarchy will return to FX in 2013.

    Jax cut his hair because Charlie felt that his character would go all the way to immerse himself when he was in prison. Long hair is frowned upon. Jax was there to quietly do his time and fly under the radar. Also, I believe Charlie was shooting another movie in the off season which required him to cut his hair.

    Glossed!!! Your an idiot. You must be someone with an attention span of a nap. To say that you\’re ready for this story to be over just goes to show how much of a moron you are. Then to say it\’s boring just shows how childish you are. Would the story of your life and your troubling times (if their are any) be told in a short period Of time? What anyone\’s? The answer is No, soul for you to be bored just means you have no sense, no understanding, and no true to life experience of what it\’s like to make difficult decisions. Or to tell a story for that matter. Go rent a movie on Redbox watching 90 minutes and then you won\’t be bored anymore. All I gotta say is stay the fuck away from sons of anarchy you don\’t deserve to watch it!

  • Russ

    The only problem I have with the show is that it’s getting depressing watching the cast shrink. When I go back and watch seasons one and two there are so many more good times of partying and being a family. Now there is mostly people selling their souls. I can accept that that is part of the story, but it’s somewhat joyless. There are very few people left at the table now and the families are either splintered, jailed or dead by and large.

    The writing and acting of course are great. I just hate watching these characters I love so much slowly withering.

If there were anyway possible to become part of the show I would do whatever and go where ever to become part of it. Everytime i watch any of the episodes i get a piece of mind. Things seem to become clear when i am watching it or even listening to the sound track. I hope and pray that season seven is not the last. I am gonna be taking a trip to California to see where it is all filmed at.

    I come from a family with a long club history. So much of S.O.A flows close to home.. My dad died of cancer, and had the same problems in his hands as Clay.. Even being wiped out by radiation, and chemo, my dad took his last ride at the “The Tail of The Dragon” in TN/NC 318 curves in 11 miles. This was a dying mans last ride. As a tribute we rode and illegally spread his ashes along the Dragon.. I really cant wait for the next season. Kurt Sutter doesn’t know I exist but he brings me a piece of my father with every season. ( not to mention he looks like my dad early My only problem with the show is that we have to wait so long between season…

    Go chucky .lol..I remember the premiere in NYC this life. Now over 35 years…oh how it hits home..Kurt is a really good writer…I love to watch this show.

  • Tammy Harper McCullough

    When does Sons Of Ananrchy come back on in 2013. I would like it to stay on forever, because I really like the show, and so does my husband, my husband was watching it and told me that I would like the show, and suren enough when I was watching the show I fell in love with it. I just wished they would come on all the time instead of come on one season and coming back on another season.

    Sutter is brilliant. The plot twists and turns that he takes… fan-friggin-tastic. I never know what to expect and no matter what anyone has to say about the show – that, in itself, is a rarity these days. That’s probably why I caught up on all five seasons within a 10 day time period. I feel like a junkie now, jonesin’ to know what’ll happen next. Well done, Mr. Sutter… well done indeed.

  • SoA Lover

    If Sutter can end Season 7 the way he ended The Shield, I will be satisfied and blown away at the same time. Great writing and directing for both series, and none of the 1/2 season BS going on like at A&E for Breaking Bad. September 2013 will be a long time to come…

  • Hector

    I just have to say………… S.o.a…………bloody fantastic!!!!!!!!

  • hope lewin

  • jim linser

    So when dose the season start in 2013

  • Louster

    When I tell my family I love SOA, they look at me like I have 2 heads (I guess they can’t imagine a
    quiet housewife, always cooking & baking and a grandma) but I tell you nothing gets my adrenaline
    going like a good episode of Sons, can’t wait for the new season!!

  • JesseS

    As long as you can think of more episodes KEEP GOING!!! Great show with nice twists.

  • charmarisa

    I don’t watch much Television because I get hooked on a perticular show and then the next thing you know you have missed the last episode not to mention last season of the show..Example House..That was a great show just because of its charector..Now the Sons Of Anarchy, I am just as hooked as the next fan and can not wait for season 6…i hope Kurt will find a way to continue the show even into 8 seasons..if not us fans will be crushed, UNLESS, LOL..he can come up with another show that will be as intresting as this one…I do hate that Opie was killed off, man that was a as far as Jax (yummy) I feel you Tara…I would like to see his children grow up some maybe even take the reigns like Jax is doing, wow now this will lead to more seasons…Gemma well we all love her, I remembered her in Married with children, this was really a good fit for her..different but a good fit..Thanks to all of the crew to such a fantastic series….I do have to say, that Jax kept his word to his moma in the end, she will remain part of the family after what she knelt down to do for her son and for herself…Tara well she too made the deal for Gemma to be part of the family but was about to take those grandbabies away, bad Tara for I see her point also, but what do you do? Jax kept his word…GREAT ENDING ON EDGE COME ON NOW IS IT NOT SEPT YET?

  • Steven Williams

    The Sons of Arnachy is an excellent program and my wife and myself are big fans huge fans even. We are so looking forward to the next season of the Sons. The stories thus far have been amazing and as for Jax’s playing out these plot he has done a great job I have to say he dose make the show not taking anything away from the rest of the cast everyone are great but he is so well suited for the roll. I am so hoping that it dose go past 7 Seasons this is an Amazing nothing else that I have seen comes close to being as good. So please keep up the good work and I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to watch the next season’s plot I am so tense just waiting for it to air. So please hurry up and get it on the TV. Many Thanks Steve.

    I think if Clay does get killed off, it should be by Opie’s children doing the job. For being the root of their mother’s death, their father’s & killing their grandfather

  • rOB

    Please kill off that S.O.B. Clay!! Let Tara do it.

    • pinner

      kill off clay kill the series already good show even great show but its getting to full of shit needs to end sooner than later

  • Nick Vass

    What can I say, just watched the final episode of season 5 and I can’t wait till season 6 unfolds. Bring it on, Your Aussie fans love you Kurt.Only one question if I could . Now we know bikers aren’t angels that being said where is the swearing that would be the bread and butter of biker vocabulary having worked with them I know this to be the case.
    Doesn’t diminish them just shows that they are human like the rest of us…well maybe not exactly like the rest of us.

  • oscar

    Mr Sutter not only a you a great producer/writer. You’re a great actor. I just can’t wait for season 6. Sons of Anarchy is a terrific show. FX would be crazy not to renew the series. Keep up the great job Mr Sutter. You are a genius.
