FX's 'The Bastard Executioner' brings plenty of Kurt Sutter's same 'Sons of Anarchy' style to the middle ages, but does the sword-swinging followup cut twice as deep? Our early spoiler-free review, before 'The Bastard Executioner' makes his first kill in tonight's two-hour premiere.
Sons of Anarchy
Now that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has his hands full with FX’s Bastard Executioner, fans were surprised to learn that the motorcycle outlaw drama might have more life in it after all, as FX charters a Mayan-centric spinoff. Now, Sutter himself confirms that the possible spinoff wouldn’t function as a prequel, and could feature returning Anarchy characters.
Despite lacking any official photography of Jessica Jones, Marvel and Netflix keep right on truckin’ with Luke Cage pre-production. Latest to enter the Hero-for-Hire’s world is none other than Sons of Anarchy vet Theo Rossi as a Marvel gangster nemesis, while reports also confirm Rosario Dawson to reprise her Daredevil role as Claire Temple.
The pickup of Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter’s FX followup The Bastard Executioner seemingly put to rest any immediate notion of an Anarchy spinoff (or prequel miniseries), but it seems you cant keep a good motorcycle gang down. Sutter has reportedly begun work on a spinoff after all, one focused on the Mayan motorcycle gang featured heavily through the series.
Kurt Sutter will soon return to FX without missing a beat from Sons of Anarchy’s final ride, this time around heading to medieval Wales for The Bastard Executioner. Already the series had a bit of Teller carryover in Katey Sagal, but how likely are Charlie Hunnam or other SAMCRO greats to put in appearances on The Bastard Executioner?
Both Sons of Anarchy and True Blood have gotten far enough in the rear-view mirror that we’re looking ahead to Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner on the horizon, but it seems the former two almost had an insanely weird crossover. Not only had True Blood couple Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin sought roles in the final ride of Sons of Anarchy, but with a much less healthy relationship than real life.
It was the end of an era at Comic-Con 2015, as for the first time in years, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter wasn’t on hand himself to preview the latest bloodsport. That isn’t to say that Sutter didn’t attend in spirit, instead sending along an exclusive preview of September FX premiere The Bastard Executioner, and we were on hand for all the gory details.

We have but days to wait until 'Sons of Anarchy' reaches its violent end with Tuesday series finale "Papa's Goods," but some fans of the Kurt Sutter biker drama accidentally got an early look at the swan song. At least several copies of literary series retrospective "Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition" were mailed in advance of the December 10 release, somewhat spoiling the end and leading Sutter to a public (and angered) apology.
