Sons of Anarchy was a bit of an up-and-down kind of show, with some really strong seasons and a few that were largely forgettable. But regardless of what we think about the writing and the plotlines, one thing was for sure — Charlie Hunnam was great as Jackson “Jax” Teller, the son of the deceased founder of the outlaw motorcycle crew Sons of Anarchy.
Now that series creator Kurt Sutter is diving back into the world of biker turf wars with the spinoff Mayans MC, Hunnam said he’d love to make an appearance. Only one small problem – Jax is dead. Okay, so we didn’t officially see him die, but the final scene of the series was poor ol’ Jax willingly driving his bike directly into the front of an oncoming 18-wheeler, unable to cope with the horrible things he had done to his friends and family over the years. So yeah, he’s dead.
No matter, though!
“Listen, if they call me, if they want me to do a little dream sequence,” he told TMZ, “I’ll do anything for Jax, I love that guy, but I think I’m dead.”
“Do you know what, can I tell you something? I actually haven’t seen the last season of Sons yet, so I didn’t seen how it ended,” he added, “I just need a little bit of distance before I watch it so I can appreciate it and see it for what it is rather than what I wanted it to be.”
Mayans MC has already been confirmed as taking place after the events in Sons of Anarchy, so there’s no chance that Jax can show up in a prequel. However, flashbacks of the complicated relationship between the Mayans and SAMCRO would actually be really cool, including previously unseen events (like meetings or shootouts) where Jax may have been present.
