Sons of Anarchy season 7, the last season of the FX show, is moving forward as creator Kurt Sutter is having difficulty dealing with the show ending.

Sutter said in an update on his YouTube channel that he’s turned in episode 2 to the network and that he’ll start his draft of episode 3 soon, while production staff begins on Monday and cameras will start sometime at the end of May.

Although there’s no casting news, Sutter said that he and his team will start looking at actors soon.

He then said that he wanted to talk about his possible new series Bastard Executioner.

He said that he’s planning on documenting the process of creating the pilot for the show, bringing in a small type of documentary crew in.

“I thought that that would be fun for people to watch,” he said.

“Not that I’m not focused on the show that matters, which is the show that exists … I think some of it for me is what I tend to do, I know you may find this hard to believe, I have an obsessive personality.”

“What I tend to do is when I come to something that creates an uncomfortable feeling, as change does for me, anything that feels different, it really doesn’t matter, if it’s any kind of uncomfortable feeling, my default is never sit in that feeling, my default is to get the [expletive] out,” he disclosed.

“Drugs and alcohol and substances are no longer an option, I punched that ticket 20 years ago, you know it’s all the other stuff, and I realize that as Sons comes to a close, as I have to face that reality and that sadness and that endgame, I’m pretending that’s not happening by going ‘oh, I have to do this over here after Sons,’ so I’m already jumping out of the feeling of the show ending to the next thing.

“Some of it is human nature, some of it is the fact that my humanity is a bit broken, so it’s just the nature of the beast.”

The final season is set to premiere in September.
