Sons of Anarchy isn’t kicking off its final season until this fall, but fans are already getting some insight as to what they can expect to see in future episodes. During his appearance at Comic-Con this past weekend alongside most of the cast, creator Kurt Sutter dropped hints about the upcoming season of the hit FX show and — much to many viewers’ delight — even confirmed the possibility of a prequel series.
Sutter was joined at the panel Katey Sagal, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, and most of the rest of the cast. While the show’s lead, Charlie Hunman, was unable to attend the panel due to a previously scheduled photo shoot with Vogue, he did make a brief appearance over video, in which he poked fun at himself and also thanked fans for their support. “This is the seventh season of the show. For a show to stay on the air that long requires the massive support of our fans,” he said, per Deadline.
Sons of Anarchy is the highest rated series in FX’s history and fans are eagerly awaiting the show’s return on September 9. The upcoming seventh season is set to kick off with an almost two hour-long episode, which picks up right after Jax (Hunman) discovers his wife Tara and Sheriff Eli Roosevelt murdered in their home. The leader of the SAMCRO crew is then determined to seek revenge on the assailants, unaware that his mother and fellow crew member are the ones responsible for the murders.
