Kurt Sutter (SOA, The Shield, Mayans MC) fired for abrasive behaviour

Kurt Sutter‘s long relationship with FX has run out of gas.

The Sons of Anarchy creator has been fired by the cable network in light of multiple complaints about his behavior on the spinoff Mayans M.C., according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sutter sent a letter to the Mayans cast and crew following his dismissal in which he describes himself as “an abrasive d*ck” and apologizes, adding that “my arrogance and chronic distraction has created wreckage.” But further details on the specific complaints against him have not yet been made public.

Sutter served as creator and showrunner on Sons of Anarchy, which ran for seven successful seasons on FX, and went on to co-create the Sons spinoff Mayans M.C., which debuted last year and is currently airing its second season, with Elgin James. (Sutter had already announced that he’d be handing over full-time showrunner duties to James, should Mayans get renewed for a Season 3.) Prior to Sons of Anarchy, Sutter was a writer and producer on the FX cop drama The Shield, and he also created the short-lived medieval drama The Bastard Executioner for the network back in 2015

Here's Sutter's letter to cast:

Dear Team Mayans,

Apparently, Disney HR and Business Affairs has conducted an investigation into the unacceptable conditions that have been created on the set of Mayans in season 2. As you know, I’ve removed myself quite a bit this season, allowing others to take a bigger role in producing the show. It appears that philosophy has backfired. It’s been reported by writers, producers, cast and crew that my absence and subsequent behavior when there, has only created confusion, chaos, hostility and is perceived as abandonment. Or at least that’s how Disney has interpreted it. I’m sure it’s true.

This morning I was fired by Dana Walden and John Landgraf for all the complaints levied against me. Not the way I wanted to end my 18 year relationship with FX. At least being fired for being an abrasive d*ck is on brand.

I deeply apologize if I’ve made people feel less than or unsupported. My intention was literally the opposite. But clearly I’ve not been paying attention. My arrogance and chronic distraction has created wreckage. Just know, I adore this cast and crew.

I’m not sure what the fate of Mayans MC holds. But if it continues, you’ll still be in good hands. As I said at the premier, Elgin is ready to take on the challenge of running the show. I’m sure FX will get him the support he needs to find and follow his vision.

For those of you who wanted me gone, you win! For those of you who didn’t, you win too. Although I will no longer be involved, I have no doubt the new team will move things forward with the same quality fans have come to expect.

Thank you for the honor of working with all of you.

I don’t need, nor want, replies or condolences. I know where the love is. And for those of you who have it, I’m sure our paths will cross again.

Best,
ks

Mayans has been getting very good as of late.

Hope Sutter leaving doesn't ruin the show and it ends up only going like 1 more season.

Crazy how we're in an era where he gets fired for being an "abrasive d*ck" - doesn't even seem like he got #MeToo'd. Seems like maybe Disney (who now owns FX) just didn't fu*k with him, which is a shame because I'm sure he had some crazy ideas for future seasons.

He gave them 18 years worth of work and high rated shows

Disney buys the channel

Fires him for being "mean"

Disney strikes again

It's no surprise they're so pro-China they're doing an excellent job of censoring everything.

Yeah thanks for the first couple of seasons of Sons but dude sucks if he writes these cheezy a*s scenes....Made his girl (Jemma) the actual real star of Sons...Mayans might be better off without him, he always gonna make every crew weaker than SOA....


They need to bring back Adriana tho, let EZ fu*k her a couple of episodes..

Haven’t watched Mayans is this the first appearance of SOA?

Or do they play a part throughout the series how the Mayans did in SOA?
