Let 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Justified's 'Deadwood' arms race continue! While we sift through the flurry of network announcements in recent days, 'Sons of Anarchy' season 6 has added a major new recurring role to its cast. Former 'Deadwood' star Kim Dickens will cross more than paths with Jax and Nero in the new season, but what will have SAMCRO brought to its knees by the new recurring role?

'Sons of Anarchy' season 6 may have some major male villains to cross when the newest episodes premiere this fall, but the latest addition is all woman. Via TVLine, we've learned that 'Deadwood' alum and 'Treme' star Kim Dickens will join the series in season 6 as Collette Jane, a "seductive and maternal" madame who crosses paths with both Jax and Nero in their continued escort business.

While both Drea de Matteo's Wendy and Donal Logue’s villainous Lee Toric will return next season, and Jimmy Smits (Nero Padilla) was announced to join the series as a regular this coming year, still unconfirmed is the involvement of Billy Blanks’ character August Marks, whom Sutter cautioned might not be available for the sixth season. Last year, Sutter told reporters the next batch of episodes would likely open a few weeks ahead in the story, the weight of the season 5 finale’s events still fresh.

We'll keep you apprised of the latest from 'Sons of Anarchy' season 6, which goes before cameras next week, but what say you? Do you think 'Sons of Anarchy's new female foe will prove too hot to handle?
