The FX television series Sons of Anarchy was one of the most popular and successful shows of the 2000s. It spawned a spin-off, Mayans M. C., which premiered in 2018 and has run for four successful seasons, with the fifth one in production. Even if Kurt Sutter has hinted several times that he desires to further expand the universe, FX hasn't given him a go-ahead. But, it appears to have changed.
According to Theo Rossi, one of the show’s cast members, Sons of Anarchy might be returning to television screens soon.
During an appearance at the Soho Works panel discussion of Emily the Criminal last Friday, the actor and producer told Deadline, "There might be something coming up where we’re all back together, which is insane. If it happens, it’s wild, but if it doesn’t, it would be perfect and really cool because we [himself and the rest of the Sons of Anarchy cast] also talk every day."
When asked if the project is a movie, the actor gave a coy response stating that the project is different and cool.
Despite acknowledging the fact that the show was highly popular with fans, Rossi believes that the entertainment industry didn’t take much note of it at the time.
In his words, "We knew that we were in something that was rarefied air. We were the people’s champ. Everybody loved us, but no one in Hollywood gave a s**t about us. The executives, none of them watched it, they didn’t care. But we couldn’t walk two seconds without people being super-hyped that we were all together and we were all friends. We knew we were on something special and different, very different from Mad Men, very different from a lot of the shows that were going on."
Sons of Anarchy ran for seven seasons between 2008 and 2014 and won numerous awards, including a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series. The film chronicled the lives of members of an outlaw motorcycle club in the fictional town of Charming, California.
Rossi starred as Juan-Carlos 'Juice' Ortiz in the long-running show that saw Charlie Hunnam play the protagonist Jackson 'Jax' Teller. Apart from the two, Sons of Anarchy also starred Katey Sagal, Matt Boone Junior, Ron Perlman, Tommy Flanagan, Ryan Hurst, and Johnny Lewis, among others.
Rossi’s latest role was as a Lebanese criminal, Youcef, in the 2022 film Emily the Criminal which also starred Aubrey Plaza, and his performance earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination. He will next appear in the Jaume-Collet Serra-directed action thriller film titled Carry-On, alongside Taron Egerton and Jason Bateman. While the film is set to debut on Netflix, it does not yet have a release date.
