11. Sons of Anarchy

Release Year: 2008

Seasons: 7

Creator: Kurt Sutter

Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Kim Coates, Tommy Flanagan, Johnny Lewis, Maggie Siff, Ron Perlman, Ryan Hurst, and others

Sons of Anarchy led the charge for FX’s revamped position as destination television worth watching and talking about. Before American Horror Story, The Americans (both of which are on this list), and others solidified this standing, a motorcycle gang rode on in and took over television.

Set in the fictional California town of Charming in the Central Valley, Sons of Anarchy tracks the exploits of Jax Teller, his family, and his brotherhood of outlaw motorcycle club cohorts. The series fires off with the premature birth of Jax’s son and the discovery of long-hidden family secrets.

For seven seasons and 92 episodes, Sons of Anarchy brought a different shade of drama to television, and audiences and critics took notice. The series scored awards buzz and high ratings well into its final season. Rev up your binge-watching engine for one of the best drama series on Amazon Prime Video!
