‘Sons of Anarchy’ Season 7: Kurt Sutter Talks About Killing Opie & Tara, Series Creator Dared In ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Scheduled to premiere next month for the show's seventh and final season, "Sons of Anarchy" is currently in production for the final 13 episodes with Jax Teller vowing vengeance for his wife's brutal murder. Still not over the shock of season 6 finale, A Mother's Work, fans of the show are wondering if the previous episode will set the tone for SAMCRO's final ride.
Cast member Charlie Hunnam speaks at a panel for the television series ''Sons of Anarchy'' during the FX portion of the Television Critics Association Summer press tour in Beverly Hills, California August 2, 2013.
SOA showrunner Kurt Sutter recently talked about his job as the show's lead writer and how he managed to create relatable scenes. One of the many heartbreaking scenes of the show is the death of two lead characters, Opie and Tara, whose death is one of TV's brutal deaths which caused a lot of fans to hate the controversial series creator.
"It's not that my goal is to disturb people, but I want that reaction when beloved characters go away," revealed Sutter in an interview posted on Movie Pilot. "I want people to be upset. When Opie was killed, people [expletive] hated me. They didn't stop watching, but they were upset -- they had lost a friend. That to me means you're writing characters that are relatable, believable and people want to show up for each week. Which means, quite frankly, I'm doing my job."
With the body count piling up, "Sons of Anarchy" season 7 will kick off 10 days after Tara's death and Jax played by Charlie Hunnam will be in prison planning for his revenge. Not knowing that his misery was created by his own mother, Gemma Teller played by Katey Sagal, Jax will have some trust issues with everyone and will only depend on the gang and SAMCRO's matriarch.
Currently working with "Sons of Anarchy" last remaining episodes and his upcoming show "Bastards Executioner," the tattooed writer was dared by CarterMatt Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Matt Carter to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Together with "Hannibal's" executive producer Bryan Fuller and "King of Nerds" executive producer Curtis Armstrong, Sutter was given 24 hours to complete the challenge or pay $100 for ALS charities.
"Sons of Anarchy" is scheduled to premiere on Sept. 9.
