Sons of Anarchy is headed into its final season. Yet creator Kurt Sutter says the end of the road for FX’s biker hit has not yet been entirely mapped.
“Considering I’m a week-and-a-half behind writing episode 7, it could all change,” Sutter told reporters when asked about the series ending at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “I’ve always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I’ve learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are. And this season isn’t any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end … but things change. It’s always been heading in the same direction, but the way I’m getting there continues to change.”
Also, Sutter warns not to expect the final season to feel markedly different: “I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different,” Sutter said. “I really want it to feel like another season from Sons, only that when we’re done there’s probably not a whole lot more story to tell.”
And will there be closure? “We don’t fade to black in a diner,” Sutter assured, referencing the infamous ending of HBO’s The Sopranos.

Sons of Anarchy fans are nervous heading into the show’s final season, but here’s something good to look forward to: Walton Goggins will return as transgender escort Venus Van Dam. Creator Kurt Sutter confirmed it on Twitter (in NSFW language that properly conveys his own excitement).
Goggins, who could earn a guest performer Emmy nomination June 10 for the character’s emotional return in season six, had been vocal about wanting to play the role again. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see her again before this show is done. I’ll just say that,” he told EW last October. “She’s like a drug for me. And I think she’s like a drug for Kurt. Kurt and his writing staff did such a good job of creating this woman who is as strong as they come and now simultaneously as vulnerable as they come. I just… I miss her. I missed her the day that we wrapped, and I miss her now. I hope to be six inches taller than some of the members of the gang on Sons of Anarchy again, but we’ll see.” READ FULL STORY
We said it in our recap of Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale, and now we’ll say it again: Every year, EW advocates for Maggie Siff to get an Emmy nomination. We hope this past season’s scene in the park — when Tara is convinced Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is going to kill her, but instead, he decides to set her and their boys free — will finally cinch her one. Here, Siff — a new mom who imagines she’ll “start sniffing around again in the fall” for her next role — talks about that scene, which was named one of the TV season’s 50 Best in the issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands now.

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has a new drama in the works at FX.
The pilot, titled The Bastard Executioner, was announced today by the network and described as a period drama about a warrior knight in the age of King Edward III.

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale, stop now. (Read our full recap.) Theo Rossi took a break from shopping for his nephew at Toys ‘R Us on Dec. 9 to talk us through Juice’s latest drama (so wrong, yet so right).

The aftershow will be hosted by Chris Franjola (Chelsea Lately).
On Twitter, creator Kurt Sutter confirmed the show will follow a similar format to the AMC after-shows, with “cast members, celebrity superfan and me” appearing.

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.
Jax’s old lady Tara has always been the character to whom many Sons of Anarchy fans relate most: As long as this strong, smart woman is willing to stay in this outlaw world, it’s safe for us to play in it, too. That’s why it felt like we were all being punished when she was led away in handcuffs at the end of the season 5 finale. Siff spoke with EW about filming that soul-sucking scene, the season’s controversial masturbation moments (including the one with death row inmate Otto, played by series creator Kurt Sutter), and where her character goes from here.
