If you were worried about whether or not Jax Teller would be back to live another day, put your minds to rest. Kurt Sutter has been given a three year deal and Sons of Anarchy has been renews for a fifth and sixth season already.
If you are ok with a few four letter words, you can head on over to Kurt Sutter’s blog where he talks about random things in his life as well as what’s happening with Sons of Anarchy season five.
Sutter let fans know that four new characters were in development for the fifth year of blood, sex, lust and violence. We aren’t sure if one of these is the character the Jimmy Smits has been cast as, it could be number two or four.
- Damon Pope, who’s daughter Tig killed at the end of season 4.
- One wears a patch we’ve never seen.
- One is hard, curvy and very sexy.
- One packs a platinum .45 with a walrus tusk handle, he’s incredibly dangerous, but really, he just wants to be loved.
