Sons of Anarchy fans may not have to wait too long for the prequel of the hit FX show as creator Kurt Sutter has said "the dream is still alive".
Sutter is currently preparing for the grand premier of his next drama, The Bastard Executioner, which is scheduled to premiere next month.
Even as Sons of Anarchy (SOA) ended its glorious seven-season run on FX last year, fans wanted to see more of the ruthless motorcycle gang and their emotional journey in another series.
Before the series finale of SOA, the show creator had teased the possibility of a prequel that would talk about the First 9, the founding members of the Sons of Anarchy biker gang and the formation of the famous MC.
"It's something that we have talked about," Sutter told E! Online. "It's something that we have interest in. We are interested. I think the timing of it really depends on what unfolds. I think for me, and the network, it's taking the next obvious and right choice and The Bastard Executioner is the energy we're moving in now."
Though Sutter admitted that he is currently focussed completely on The Bastard Executioner, he claimed that the prequel to SOA is close to his heart, which he wants to materialise in a couple of years.
"I knew I didn't want to do anything that was Sons related immediately [after it ended]," he said and added, "I didn't want to come right off of that and do a prequel or anything like that. I wanted to give it a couple years to breathe before we came back to do it. So none of that has gone away. We'll see how the next couple years or at least the next year with The Bastard Executioner unfolds and then we'll have to see."
The Bastard Executioner is one of the most awaited original series for FX, which will premiere on 9 September.
If the show gains popularity, Sutter will continue to focus on it for a couple of seasons, before moving towards the Samcro gang of Charming.
