Spoiler alert: Jax will make it out of Sons of Anarchy‘s upcoming fifth season alive. SAMCRO’s newly installed leader will also survive Season 6 and, if there is one, Season 7.
At FX’s portion of the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour on Saturday, SOA creator Kurt Sutter revealed that of all the castmembers on the biker drama Charlie Hunnam has the most job security.
“The show is the prince’s journey, so there is no show without Jax,” Sutter told reporters. “My sense of where the show will end up definitely includes Jax, and perhaps Gemma (Katey Sagal) and Clay (Ron Perlman).”
Sutter went on to say that he entered Season 5 (bowing Sept. 11) with “a very clear sense of where my endgame is… and [I’m writing] to that endgame.
“The stakes get higher with each season, the circumstances get more dire, the wreckage gets deeper,” he added. “And I think as a result of that things will change. I don’t quite know how that will all fall apart, but I know eventually it will.”
