Sons of Anarchy season 7 is going to include many deaths.

The final season of the popular FX show has been rumored to include so many that few, if any, main characters will be standing by the time it’s done.

“People are dropping like flies, literally, every two seconds you’re like, ‘Oh, that person’s gone,'” Theo Rossi recently teased to Entertainment Weekly.

“There’s always a big clap-off it feels, every scene, every episode, somebody’s leaving.”

Show creator Kurt Sutter and Charlie Hunnam (Jax) have also been giving insight into the upcoming season.

Hunnam described Jax’s mindset as a “schizophrenic state.”

“He’s obviously very sad and vulnerable and kind of broken, but there’s a huge amount of vengeance and anger in his heart. The way all of that is processing, at least in the very beginning, is [starting] to have a numbing effect. He knows what he wants to do, and that’s where all of his energy is going to go, but he can’t get away from the fact that the love of his life has been taken from him,” he said at the recent TCA press tour, according to EW.

“This final betrayal [has] completely demolished any potential of him trusting anyone outside of his immediate circle. In all of the scenes, I’ve been trying to instill a little of that sense. Unless you’re my mom, my children or one of the Sons, you’d better watch out.”

“[Jax]’s singular purpose for most of the season is to avenge her death,” Sutter added.

Season 7 premieres on September 9.
