Sons of Anarchy Creator Says THE WALKING DEAD Will Reach Its Downfall

Sons of Anarchy Creator Says THE WALKING DEAD Will Reach Its Downfall

In one of his recent videos on his website, SOA creator Kurt Sutter believes that the acclaimed show will begin to fall off after Seasons 4 and 5.

With The Walking Dead set to return next month, Sutter shares his opinion on why the show will tend to get stale once it reaches it's 4th and 5th season.

He claims that the show will become inconsistent with the absence of Glen Mazzara being a creative part of the show.

With the announcement of Mazzara leaving, Sutter took his thoughts to Twitter, stating: "Even zombies need consistency." He later continued on his website in a 12 minute video saying: “The show has a tremendous following; it has legs. They’re going to plug somebody else in there; they’ll plug some pour soul in there, or, my sense is that they won’t even hire a showrunner."


He goes on to say how this strategy will work, but it'll start to water down once season 4 hits, claiming without having a guy like Glen Mazzara, the show will eventually suffer in the end, meaning the show won't be good as it was.

He even criticized The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who thinks is a fantastic visual and graphic artist, but is clueless about TV. Eventually Kirkman would go to Twitter to send his thoughts as well: [email protected] is brilliant and Sons is my favorite show on TV. Still, it’s upsetting to see him ranting about things he knows nothing about.”


Sutter confesses at the end of the video that The Walking Dead is none of his business and that he supports his fellow showrunners and artists, but saying this should be a wake up call for AMC. What do you guys think? Leave your thoughts in the main place.
