We love a good teaser, and have been far too long without any official looks at the upcoming 'Sons of Anarchy' season 5. Still, one must remember that teasers aren't necessarily representative of what we'll actually see when the latest installment of 'Sons of Anarchy' debuts late this summer, or even at Comic-Con 2012. The first official teaser for the FX motorcycle drama's fifth year probably isn't meant to be taken literally, but has us revved up nonetheless.
Sons of Anarchy
Sunday, the final day of Comic Con, is traditionally a little slow. Most of the big dogs have gone home and many visitors use this day to search for last minute shopping deals on the show floor (after all, some people do go to Comic Con to buy comics). That doesn't mean that the day is wont for things to do. Actually, there are plenty of interesting panels to check out, especially if you're TV fan...and especially if you're a Joss Whedon fan.
Even though 'Wilfred' technically had its season 2 premiere already, 'Sons of Anarchy' won't return until September, and 'Archer' season 4 has no set date, this marks a big week for FX. Not only will the network premiere Charlie Sheen's new vehicle 'Anger Management' and the third season of 'Louie,' but FX has announced their full Comic-Con 2012 plans! What shows will host a presence in San Diego, and what will we see?
'Sons of Anarchy' fans are eager for look at the upcoming Season 5 of the show, particularly given how Jax Teller's position elevated and changed over the course of season 4 finale "To Be, Act 2." SAMCRO has a whole new world of hurt upon it based on the whirlwind of recent castings for new and old villains alike, but what does Charlie Hunnam himself have to say about Jax in the new season?
The fuel crunch is getting us all even more nervous, now that so many new faces seem to be riding into FX motorcycle club drama 'Sons of Anarchy's fifth season. We already learned that former 'NYPD Blue' star Jimmy Smits and 'LOST's Harold Perrineau would play large, looming roles over the Kurt Sutter series' fifth outing, but now the ranks have expanded to include...a Disney sweetheart?
Oh, that Kurt Sutter. Is there anyone he won't pick a fight with? The 'Sons of Anarchy' creator and show-runner has a well-documented history of getting a little overzealous on social media, be it his Twitter or his personal blog, but now it seems a real-life area motorcycle gang isn't amused by his antics. Might 'Sons of Anarchy' go meta by throwing down some real-life fisticuffs?
Who's ready to get 'LOST?' We already learned that FX's 'Sons of Anarchy' season 5 had cast 'NYPD Blue' vet and former 'Dexter' guest star Jimmy Smits in a major recurring role, but now they've set their heights a little higher on a new big bad to plague SAMCRO in the days ahead. But who is this mysterious villain, and what ties does he have to previous seasons?
Deja vu, anyone? Now that 'Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) has moved up through the ranks of SAMCRO to take Clay's position at the head of the table, the heavy head that wears the crown might need a little help from someone in the know. And 'Sons of Anarchy's latest casting has more than a little experience mentoring people outside the law.
With 'Sons of Anarchy' season 4 providing FX with some of its highest ratings to date, it's no wonder the network jumped on the possibility of locking series creator Kurt Sutter down for an additional two-season order, and it wouldn't be much of a surprise for a seventh to be in the cards.
That said, season 4 finale 'To Be, Part 2" left 'Sons of Anarchy' fans in quite a huff, finally placing Jax Teller at the head of the SAMCRO table with wife Tara firmly at his side, the group still in turmoil, and the promise of new conflicts on the horizon. So where do the 'Sons of Anarchy' ride next?
