We’ve posted our final thoughts about “Sons of Anarchy” season 5 as a whole; and now, we also have some final comments about the show courtesy of executive producer Kurt Sutter; and in addition to that, he also revealed some early details about when he will start up some work on season 6 with the writers in the new year.
In the last “WTF Sutter?!” video of the year, the showrunner started things off (at least after talking about a story involving a medical condition that we are pretty sure you do not want to hear about) by giving some general thoughts on the thirteen episodes that just wrapped … including that he is rather satisfied with how everything turned out as a whole:
“I think we got there pretty solidly. I come in every season with a general blueprint of what we want to do … We’ve gotten to the place where I can hold on to these loose ideas with less of a death grip than I had in previous years. I think that’s serving the show and serving the story … I’m really allowing the characters and the stories to unfold in a more interesting ways. It had a lot to do with a lack of linear straight lines this season. I think that helped us. “
When it come to criticism, he said that by and large the reaction to season 5 was positive save for some people who were upset about his decision to include dogfighting. In defense of that, he explained that he felt as though the show depicted the act as something that was not only gruesome, but horrified one of the show’s main characters.
As for the future, Sutter said that he will start to get together with the writers for season 6 in February, and he will also provide more updates throughout the lengthy (and thus depressing) filming hiatus).
