For those of us who eagerly wait for the next season of Sons of Anarchy to come about, we will take any little scrap of news about the upcoming second season.
Kurt Sutter recently posted an update on his blog about the progress of writing for season 2:
I’ve finished a draft of the first script and my writers are in the process of writing 202 and 203. We’ve broken the first four episodes and have a pretty solid handle on the arc of the season. Two weeks ago, I pitched the big ideas to the network and they loved them. It’s cool when your boss is also a fan of the show. I don’t just get “that’s good for the network”, I get “that’s great shit for the show”. They had very few notes on the first script, so we are off to a good start with the story-telling. My hope is to have four scripts approved by the time we start production at the end of April.
Obviously, I can’t give anything away, but I as I’ve said in a few interviews, this season is all about alliances. We are going to explore and exploit the bonds we have with our brothers, our family, our country and our god. As I was writing this first script, I smiled when I realized that I get to channel all my twisted Catholic angst into a show about men who play God. I love my fucking job.
Still uncertain exactly when season two will air. A lot depends on FX’s development slate. I will keep you posted.
It’s always a good sign when the writer himself is giddy with twisted excitement!
