A Sons of Anarchy Community
FX (ended 2014)
Great News !!!!
FX and Kurt Sutter have confirmed a prequel to “Sons of Anarchy” called “The First 9
The good thing is we will see again Oppie, Clay, maybe young Tara, baby Jakson and of course John Teller and the founding members of SAMCRO in their heydays. I am not sure I look forward to see again, in any form, Gemma.
It seem that is going to be a standalone 12-episode thing, and it won´t start for a few years, creating a breathing time in between this bloody ending season 7 and the prequel.

I think it'll be fantastic the prequel to the sons of anarchy especially showing jahn-teller Jackson's father and how everything on rivals with Gemma allegedly killing Jackson's father and ending up with play and anything you come up with I'm sure will be amazing just from watching all the episodes of the sons of anarchy that were just so surreal I can't imagine how much better and great prequel be especially with what I heard Brad Pitt playing jahn-teller the rumor it which I hope it isn't just a rumor I hope it actually is true that Brad Pitt will play John teller Jackson's father along with all the original actors think it will be another successful Script !! #CANTWAIT #SuccessfulPrequl2Come #SimplyAmazingItWillBeAnotherSuccess #Indeed

I think they should show the future or baby Abel growing up and learning about the club and taking it on as he goes. Possibly making it better. But bringing back the ones,who died doesn't make sense at all. As for Jax's they should show him surviving that crash since all we seen was blood on the ground, which could mean he did hit it and survived but is in pooorr shape. Also what about Neo and Wendy who took the baby boys :)
Don't get me wrong I love love Opie but again bringing back the dead lol a bit much.

So as u mentioned the should start where they left off and get Abel and his brother in there growing up and making changes no one could do :)

That's a stupid idea....Jac surviving the crash would mean Tig or Happy would have to kill him anyway...mayhem vote remember

Its a prequel. Its not meant to show what happens later but what happens before. It would ruin the whole franchise to see it continue on without any of the key characters. I think you missed the point of the 'prequel '

They wouldn't be bringing Opie back... this would be before soa took place back when the characters on soa were little babies.

Great looking forward, if would seem they would need all new actors.. but that is fine with me....I know Kurt will hit the ball out of the park, that said, if the writer does not get Gemma or understand her character and her importance to the Sons why is he writing about the Sons?

First 9 would be set in the late 60's. If they get good look alikes it would be a righteous show.Jax was born in 78, so no Jax, but young JT, Piney, Clay and Otto would be sweet!

The show started in 2008 and it was mentioned that gemma was 51, which means she was born in 1957. Unser said at one point that gemma left at 16(1973) and came back 10 years(1983) later with a motorcycle club, so the show would probably be based in the early 80s

It seems excting but we all know what happend j.t dieing so i think its pointless?? I think going into the future with abel taking on the club? Or jax returning surviving the crash or showing him sliding under the semi lol i know it sounds stupid but on this story line with all the crazy shit they got away with its possible

Jury White claims that John Teller knowingly drove into that semi. Gemma & Clay claim they killed John. but I'd really like to know
more about JT's story. He didn't want Jax doing what he did but sadly that's what it came to.

I don't think Jax was a coward, i think he knew he wouldn't make it outside the club. He told able about wendy so able can trust her fully and have him feel he wouldn't be parent less after taxes death, He told wendy to take the boys with Nero for a few days hoping they would settle there and not go back to charming therefore keeping his family safe. Also you can't simply leave a club only and idiot would think it's that simple, Your enemies are still other, they might not target your club or family anymore but they will target you so he would have to live the rest of his life looking over his shoulder. and also you you really think he'd get a job with a rap sheet with club leader , drugs, guns, and murder and his ass in the slammer twice? hell no he wouldn't get employed. so no Jax's death was NOT an act of Coward it was because he knew he wouldn't make it in he world out side of samcrow.

Not quite....sons of anarchy (the whole club not just Sandro) Sanctioned Jax meeting Mr.Mayhem i.e. The club will execute him. He was going to die either way. Warrant for arrest, an entire MC requiring his death a whole lot of outside enemy's and his boys growing up seeing the evil man he's become...Jax made the decision to end his life so the club wouldn't have to kill their founders son, he wouldn't have to go to jail and Able and Thomas wouldn't idolise the outlaw Dad and become delinquents themselves

If the prequel goes back to the 80's and 90's for its storyline, perhaps we will get to see some vintage shovel or panheads. That would be cool!

I want to see a prequel but I'd like to see it sooner than 2 years from now. Throughout the seasons I always wondered what the club was like in the beginning before all of the chaos of the club after JT's death. I also wondered why they showed a picture of JT since his character was deceased. Now I'm thinking that Kurt Sutter already knew then that he would be doing a prequel and that man in the picture (who ever he is) will be the JT character.

All I know is I've been suffering withdrawal since my favorite show ended. I'm such a die-hard SOA fan, ill watch whatever Sutter puts out. But I do think if he had slowed the show down a little we could have @ least squeezed out 2 more seasons @ best. Then again SOA was a high-octane, full throttle thrill ride. So to slow it down would not be in keeping with the true spirit of our beloved show. In a nut shell:PLEASE GIVE US SOMETHING NEW TO LOOK FORWARD TO ON TUESDAYS MR SUTTER.

Thanks in advance,
All true SOA fans

it might prove a serious challenge casting a young 'Gemma' after the stellar performance of Katey Sagal. Going all the way back there will have to be babies Jax and Thomas as well as the Irish connection, Maureen, the affair, baby Trinity. And how far will it go forward - up to the accident of JT or to the point where SOA starts ?

I would assume that the the first 9 will be all that led up to jt accident and it ending the same way as sons

"The stellar performance of Katey Sagal? yes, maybe she overacted the hours Kurt Russel put her on screen, which for my taste, was to many hours. I didn´t expect to watch The Wife and Mother and Grandma of Sons Of Anarchy (in a psychotic turnaround). I expected, mostly in the final season The Sons Of Anarchy.
So I had enough of her, and a much lighter version will suit me fine.

This comment should be immediately discredited just for the fact that you said Kurt Russell and not Kurt Sutter, besides that the show was mainly about Gemma and Jax if it was to stay true to the Shakespeare it was inspired from then Gemma would've ended up the main antagonist which is essentially what happened the show would've been nothing without Gemma or most certainly a shell of what it was

A lot of people wang this. You'll always have the 7 original SOA seasons. This prequel will not change it. It will add to the story.. Maybe for the worse.. But maybe.. Just maybe for the better. I want to see it and I hope it comes. And if it sucks, we'll always have the original 7 seasons.

This has been confirmed by sutter, i just read his interview which led me to this one. It will not be for some time due to his new show "The Bastard Executioner". If i find the article again I'll post it.

There is absolutely no reliable information available- no articles, interviews, official statements it even attributable quotes- that verifies Sutter and FX have gone beyond the talking stage much less confirming the prequel is a definite go.
This is all nothing more than pure conjecture and opinion.

Opie is going to be playing his father...not Opie in the show. And idk, Katey is married to the writer, so I assume they'd figure out something to pull it off if she still really wanted to play the part. And Jax and Tara's characters will be in the show as kids/teens...not the actual current actors.

Unlikely we'll see Opie, Jax, Tara etc..They were all born in the 80's. This show is said to be set in the 60's when JT and Piney et al founded the club.

Great idea to make it a 12 ep mini series. That way we don't have to wait too long for the SOA follow up of Abel and Thomas growing into young men. One of them an outlaw and the other a lawman.

As much as that would be sweet to see that,it won't happen. Even if one of the boys turned out to be a outlaw, everything jax did in the final episode would have been for nothing.

Believe it or not, I was thinking about a prequel as I was watching the final minutes of the finale. I thought it would be interesting to see JT and Gemma when they are younger and it would be a good period drama set in the wild days of the 60s and 70s.

But why Opie? Would he not be a young kid too?

It has to be Katey Sagal. But fixed younger. we saw in True Detective how they made Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson look young and older without problems.

I doubt Katey Sagal can put off as someone in her twenties or thirties with whatever special effect. If it was set when she is in her forties, perhaps still possible.
