As we all know, Sons of Anarchy is expected to end in this final seventh season of the crime drama. However, in a recent panel at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills, creator Kurt Sutter revealed even he wasn't entirely sure how the show would end.
Indeed, despite the commencement of filming, Sutter still hasn't even finished the scripts for the entire seventh season. He explained:
Considering I’m a week-and-a-half behind writing episode 7, it could all change. 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.
However, Sutter does have some broad ideas which he intends to keep to. Most importantly, he doesn't want the final season of [Sons of Anarchy](series:201186) to feel like a typical final season. He continued:
I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different. 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.
He also explained that there would be real closure to the show. He claimed they would not simply “fade to black in a diner”, referencing the infamous ending to a certain HBO crime drama whose name I won't mention in case you haven't seen it.
