'Sons of Anarchy' prequel release date, rumors: Charlie Hunnam to be part of the show? Production to begin in 2017?


The rumored prequel to FX’s show about easy riding outlaws dubbed “Sons of Anarchy” is quite a hot topic among viewers, and fans are eager to know whether Charlie Hunnam will be once again seen riding those custom choppers or not.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight earlier this year, Hunnam was asked about speculations that the show would be returning as some sort of spin-off. The actor replied that he was quite aware of the show getting a prequel, but considering the fact that it will be set decades before the events of “Sons of Anarchy,” he’s positive that his character, Jax Teller, won’t be a part of it.

It was noted previously that the prequel, initially titled “The First 9,” will be set in the late ’60s and will be showcasing Jax’s father, John alongside eight more easy riders who were Vietnam war heroes.

Furthermore, an alleged fragment of the script for the upcoming prequel has been making rounds on the web for quite some time now. Reports suggest that Jax’s dad who’s in his mid-20s at that time will be featured riding his bike as he gives a badass look to the camera before riding off to the horizon.

On the other hand, there have also been reports of another spin-off titled “Mayans MC.” As the rumored show’s name suggests, it may well seem to feature “Sons of Anarchy’s” longtime foe. According to Deadline, the spin-off will be written by Elgin James, who according to showrunner Kurt Sutter is the best fit since he has a broad knowledge about the Latino ways.

Meanwhile, Hunnam will be seen next year in the feature film titled “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” where he will be playing the title role together with Jude Law and Eric Bana.

The “Sons of Anarchy” prequel’s release date has yet to be announced but it is said that it might begin production sometime next year.
