Can you believe it's been 12 years since Sons of Anarchy first aired?! (12 years, 26 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Sons of Anarchy end?
When Sons of Anarchy came to an end after 7 years in December 2014, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam) and Gemma Teller Morrow (Katey Sagal). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Sons of Anarchy reunion disappoint people?
Sons of Anarchy aired from 2008-2014 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Hunnam said he's not sure if Sons of Anarchy would work today. “I don't want to see old Jackson "Jax" Teller,” he told a journalist (Hunnam turned 40 in April). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Sons of Anarchy movie?
In a recent interview, Maggie Siff (who played Tara Knowles between 2008 and 2013) said she can't imagine a Sons of Anarchy reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Kim Dickens (who played Colette Jane between 2013 and 2014) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Sons of Anarchy movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Sons of Anarchy film, Ron Perlman stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Sons of Anarchy reboot?
Recasting Sons of Anarchy for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Sons of Anarchy reunion, a Sons of Anarchy movie, or a Sons of Anarchy reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
