Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner on FX hasn’t quite caught fire like his last series, Sons of Anarchy, did. Now, in an unprecedented move, the show creator is pulling the plug on the series. That’s right. It isn’t being cancelled by FX, but by Sutter himself.
Here’s what he had to say about it:
I think the mythology was a little too dense for some people. There’s a glut of period pieces on right now, and I’m sure timing has something to do it. There’s just so many f—ing variables involved in that formula. My sense is that a year from now, people will be like, “Why didn’t you make more?” (Laughs.) I mean, I get so many people telling me they’re on episode four of Sons.
He went on to say:
“I don’t want to write something that nobody’s f—ing watching.”
