Here’s the Official Reason ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Was Removed from Netflix

Charlie Hunnam‘s FX show Sons of Anarchy was removed from Netflix’s streaming service this weekend, and fans were very upset over this latest development.

Now, the creator of the show, Kurt Sutter, is explaining why the hit drama was removed and why his new show, Mayans M.C., will also never hit Netflix.

“The simple explanation why SOA is no longer on Netflix and neither will MAYANS… The Disney/Fox deal was about creating a competing streaming platform. That is the future of TV. Although it’ll take a minute to launch, F/D’s content is their biggest asset in that marketplace,” Kurt tweeted to his followers questioning the decision to remove the show. “You can still watch FX shows on FXNow, Hulu and Amazon. At least, for now… I know that doesn’t help if you only have Netflix, but in this ever-changing digital landscape, we are doing our fucking best to get content on as many streaming sources as possible. Sorry it’s wack.”

If you don’t know, Disney recently bought Fox. Disney is set to launch its own streaming service, Disney+, and though the launch date hasn’t been set, it’s rumored to be sometime in 2019.
