Sons of Anarchy: Charlie Hunnam Wants to Return as Jax Teller

at .

Sons of Anarchy seemingly closed the book on Jax Teller with its 2014 series finale, but Charlie Hunnam is not ruling out a return to that world in some capacity.

The franchise created by Kurt Sutter remains alive and kicking, thanks to Mayans M.C., which recently secured a pickup for Season 5.

If you watch Sons of Anarchy online, you know Jax Teller died in the series finale, but the actor is working on ways to bring the character back.

"Since you asked, I have an idea that I’m exploring in its infancy where that could be a possibility," he told Access Hollywood while promoting his new Apple TV+ series Shantaram.

"It would be something that I would be incredibly excited about, so we’re sort of, like I said, in the infancy of exploring the viability of the idea," he said.

"But next time I talk to you, hopefully I’ll have more information on that."

Sons of Anarchy was a huge hit for FX, but fans were left split down the middle about how the series ended.

It was a brutal series that ended with many of its most beloved characters dead.

It's hard not to be a little skeptical of any sort of return, especially if it tries to retcon what was a very conclusive finale.

It's possible that Hunnam could appear in flashbacks on an episode of Mayans M.C.

That's probably the most likely scenario here because it might be a little too Prison Break to bring the character back from the dead.

It's always hard to bring a character back from the dead, almost a decade after people have mourned them to the point they think they will never return.

For now, Hunnam will appear on Shantaram, which premieres its 12-episode first season on Friday, October 14.

The series follows a fugitive Lin Ford (Hunnam) looking to get lost in the vibrant and chaotic 1980s Bombay.

Alone in an unfamiliar city, Lin struggles to avoid the trouble he's running from in this new place.

After falling for an enigmatic and intriguing woman named Karla, Lin must choose between freedom or love and the complications that come with it.

In addition to Hunnam, the series also stars Shubham Saraf, Elektra Kilbey, Fayssal Bazzi, Luke Pasqualino, Antonia Desplat, Alyy Khan, Sujaya Dasgupta, Vincent Perez, David Field, and Alexander Siddig.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


I sacrificed everything for you. I have tried to see what you see how you see it but I can't. All I see is the lies and the violence and how it's changed you. Turned you into a monster.
