Upon hearing the news, Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy), also expressed his opinion on the matter, SAMCRO style:
"The show has tremendous following, has legs. They’re going to plug somebody else, some pour soul, in there…my sense is they won’t even hire a show-runner. They’ll throw a s—load of executives at it and [elevate] a poor sap on the writing staff…And that poor sap will ultimately be just expediting the notes and the vision of non-creative people, or at least non-creative TV people.
That’ll work for a minute. In Season 4, when this will all happen, the numbers will be big, and people will show up. Will it continue to do well? No. My sense is that without somebody like a Glen Mazzara running that show, eventually it will lose focus and the narratives will run out of steam, and it won’t be able to build off of itself, and it will suffer."
