SEASON 4 UPDATE

As we close in on the premier, I wanted to bring folks up to speed on the show.  The one I write.  Sons of Anarchy premiers of September 6th and the 90 minute episode kicks off what I think will be a very satisfying season for fans.  The feedback from folks who have already seen it has been very positive.  

I want to thank the SOA fans for making this job so satisfying.  Really, your enthusiasm and support is unparallelled.  Some days knowing how much you dig what we do is my greatest motivator.  It's the only thing I miss about Twitter, talking to you... or I guess talking at you.  

I know it's difficult for fans to wait nine months between seasons so I've tried to keep folks plugged in through social media and the iPhone and Android app.  The additional content scenes were a way to give fans an inside peek at the season as well as provide some backstory to the 14 month narrative time gap between seasons 3 and 4.  The third additional content scene, TARA AND PINEY, will hit the FX Facebook page first on 8/22, then the app on 8/24.  We promised marketing the exclusive first on this one, that's why it's hitting social media before the app.  The first two additional content scenes, PAYPHONE and SECOND SON are available now on the FX Facebook page.  

Above is the banner that will be flying over a beach near you.  I hope you join us.

Enjoyed the clips for season 4 & I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us. You are amazing.

Can't wait for the new season. As of this writing I don't see any of the additional content scenes on FX Facebook page, care to post a link?

As far as Twitter goes, I really miss seeing your insights, but I totally understand your reasoning. I say FUCK EM! But again, I totally understand where you're coming from!

Thanks for the update Mr. Sutter! Anxiosly awaiting the Season 4 premier. You know how much the fans love this show and will fight for it.

Maria Ringler said...

I can't wait for Sept 6. Keep up the terrific work and thank you for a great show.

I'm looking forward to seeing season 4 as well as buying season 3 on DVD. Damn shame that I'll probably gonna have to wait another 5-6 months, as Belgium is always a bit behind with the new seasons.

Love the Ipad app, youtube info you do between seasons, I don't think I've ever seen a writer go through so much effort to enhance the show's viewing experience as well as give the fans little snacks to still their hunger in between seasons. It's a shame you quit twitter, but I can imagine the fun got sucked out of it for you if some bloodhound "journalist" will take you on every tweet.

Keep up the great work on the show, and please keep blogging/ updating the app and the youtube channel.

Cheers
Geoffrey

Thanks for the appisodes! I love that you are now putting them on Social Media! I have looked on the FX Facebook page and cannot find it. Any possibility that you or another fan can point me in the right direction.

PAYPHONE is not on the FX Facebook, the only place I've seen it is on the IAPP.

Will said...

I can't wait! I'm sure it will be great!

I started watching Season 1 earlier this summer and fell in love with this show. I've been recommending it to anyone who will listen.

My only complaint is that I wish the Season 3 blu-rays came out a week earlier so I could be sure to be caught up before season 4 starts.

Kurt,
I wish you would make a Facebook so we (your fans, & SOA fans) could let you talk at us there. Your writing and your brilliant cast is what makes the show amazing. It's just raw with no sugar coating. Continue to do what you do, you are an inspiration.

Thanks,
Stormi (TX)

it's a great show . . . and it's so well written, so well done. a friend of mine emailed me the other day that it's got the layers the battlestar galactica did - speaking to current social issues in a way that shows the faces, the lives, burying the term "racism" and instead simply showing what it is, how it operates - the brown, black, and white all fighting over the same sparse resources leftover from "the biggest gang of them all: old white money."

i work in the healthcare industry - in public health research on an insurance design project - and watching how you weave in the current healthcare insanity - bobby and happy try to come up with meds for their family, tig or chibbs deal with a upcoming forced hospital transfer- reminds me why i do the work i do in the industry i do. (but even then - holy sh*t is it bad in here - so much craziness, kurt, so much arrogant wheel-spinning)

soa also makes me think about what community really is, what we've mostly lost in our current culture. it forces me to really look at the people around me, what they believe in, how well they take care of the people in their tribe.

so, yeah. can't wait for 4 to begin . . .

u said there are going to be more The shield alums in this season of SOA. now since more than half SAMCRO in prison for the first ep and certain someone is in prison from Shield, would it mean they could possibly cross paths in joint. if they do that would be EPIC.

Jackie Willoughby said...

Thanks so much for all your creativity & loyalty to SOA. I fell in love with this show from day one & I'll be here for the last episode. Hopefully for us fans that won't be for seasons to come.

Smile, a loyal fan to the end, Jackie :):):)

Hey Kurt! I just want to thank YOU who came up with this amazing show! My brother introduced it to me about a month ago, and since then I've been hooked. I've watched the three seasons about 3 times since then. Can't wait for season 4!! :) Just wanted you to know that you're doing a really, really great job. I like following your blog and WTFsutter is just great! It's really nice to se that you're so dedicated to your fans, doing all the things you do for us :) You are really cool and I like you as Big Otto in the show, and you're wife Katey is great as Gemma! Thats all from me. Hugs from your biggest fan from Sweden :) //Tess

Kurt this is so much better than twitter. I get your updates, I feel much more in touch.
I get to leave a comment. Fuck twitter.
Congrats on leaving a post without the word cunt in it. Which I kind of missed. But after reading it again, I'm not sure cunt would have fit in anywhere.

"will hit the FX Facebook page first on 8/22, then the app on 8/24"

Not to imply I know better, but this doesn't seem logical - content will arrive later on platform that users are paying for, than Facebook, where they can watch it for free?

Mr. Sutter, we miss seein' your tweets and your RT's and responses, but we know why you had to pull the plug.

Though it seems the plug is back in, or someone has hacked your Twitter and put it back up.

EW.Com is showing the 'Mexican Basketball', wonderful to see Tig and Clay playin' basketball. Somehow, I knew Tig was a player.

(Note, I didn't go for the obvious joke about bein' a ball handler!)

S4 is gonna smoke, lovin' the music for it. Thanks to SOA, my musical horizions have broadened.

It's not too far away, and appreciate that you're still continuin' to reach out to us through the blog.

Beach?

Santa Cruz?

Cause if there is one here...I may have to engage in a bit of anarchy myself....

sadiepix said...

I am so excited I could wee.
Best show on TV.
Pbth on the twitter controversy, you obviously kick ass as a showrunner so it's all fine.
As long as he show comes out the way you want it and the way we are all drooling for it to be, things will be magic.
Thanks for such a visceral and entertaining show. Hoping it really doesn't end in 7 seasons, I could watch it forever.
With baited breath....

Jeremy said...

Just got done with Season 3 last week and think it's a damn shame you didn't get any Emmy love. A fantastic season from top to bottom.

Can't wait to see what Season 4 has is store.

Thank you for this show.

matilda said...

i´m so glad that you have this blog, I followed you at twitter acouple mounths ago.

Andrea said...

If you guys look on youtube and search soa "payphone" and "second son" you'll see the appisodes. Somebody puts them up for people who dont have iphones. I'm waiting on the android app that was suppose to come out in july...

Tynettamd said...

Kurt, i love your work. I have watched the previous SOA seasons more than 4 times. I love you story lines and how you link the characters. The conflict that Jax is up against is awesome. I watch the last episode of Season 3 5 times this week trying to look for things I missed. The ending where you had Tara sitting reading the letter from Marie Ashby and the shot of Gimma's grin was priceless and keeps me wanting to know and want more.

I am addicted to the show and look forward to season 4.....

Not that I expect you to tell it , but to me in the letter that Tara was reading from Marie Ashby mention that Gimma and Clay were fooling around...is it a possiblity that clay is Jax's father....just a thought....

I would love to see the back story of the first nine....a young fiesty gimma...lol
