Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has reached out to fans to apologize for spoilers about the upcoming series finale that were leaked on his watch.
“It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector’s Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series,” he said in a missive he titled “fan apology” and shared via Twitter on Friday.
“This, my friends is a storyteller’s worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It’s a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherfucking finale.
“There are a thousand [expletive] people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my [expletive] basket will be filled with heads of incompetent [expletive]. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I [expletive] up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize.
“I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads.”
The series finale is set to air on FX on Tuesday, December 9.
