Charlie Hunnam previews his notion for a future Sons of Anarchy Jax comeback over ten years after show initially ended. Kurt Sutter’s FX series focused on Hunnam’s Jax Teller and the members of the named motorcycle club as they dealt with internal power struggles, conflicts with other gangs, and attempts to evade the authorities while engaging in the business of smuggling guns. Sons of Anarchy, which debuted in 2008, received positive reviews consistently throughout its run, and its lead Katey Sagal won a Golden Globe for her work on the program.
Sons of Anarchy eventually launched a franchise as a result of the show’s critical and viewership success, which included Mayans M.C., a spinoff sequel series focusing on the titular Latino motorcycle club, and a projected prequel tracing the history of the main club. Although Sutter was dismissed from Mayans M.C. after several complaints about his conduct from cast and crew, the spinoff program thrives, receiving a season 5 renewal this past July, but any potential franchise expansions are hardly unknown. One performer who rose to fame in the Sons of Anarchy universe is now prepared to return.
Charlie Hunnam discussed a possible Sons of Anarchy franchise revival in a recent interview with Access Hollywood. The Jax actor showed enthusiasm in joining the group again and even hinted that something was being worked on. Below is what Hunnam revealed:
“I have an idea that I’m exploring in its infancy where that could be a possibility. It would be something that I would be incredibly excited about, so we’re sort of, like I said, in the infancy of exploring the viability of the idea.“
Could Sons of Anarchy Jax Be Resurrected?
Despite Hunnam’s potential desire in playing Jax again in Sons of Anarchy, the future of his character presents a significant barrier to such a possibility. Similar to The Sopranos before it, the FX crime drama’s season conclusion, which saw the popular protagonist played by Charlie Hunnam sacrificing himself to restart the Sons of Anarchy while being hunted by police, caused considerable controversy. Given that some people believed this to be an emotionally satisfactory and rather conclusive conclusion, Hunnam’s confirmation of a concept for a potential Sons of Anarchy Jax return in the future may come as a surprise.
It wouldn’t be the first time a program managed to bring back one of its most recognizable characters for a later season, despite the fact that it would seem implausible. The Roseanne revival brought back John Goodman’s Dan Conner, who continues to play the lead role in the spin-off series The Conners. The original Sons of Anarchy series finale cut to black just before Jax got hit by the truck, so it could ultimately be explained he survived the crash. The Dallas original famously brought back Patrick Duffy’s Bobby Ewing with the “it was all a dream” explanation. Viewers may currently watch all seasons of Sons of Anarchy and Mayans M.C. on Hulu to catch up.
