After a round of ominous 20-second teasers, FX has released the first trailer for Sons of Anarchy’s final season with actual footage. “The desire for revenge is a part of grieving,” DA Patterson tells Jax. “In my world, violent desires will never become real. In yours, it’s a very likely outcome.” Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

FX has released a poster for Sons of Anarchy‘s final season, and it alters one of the show’s iconic images—Jax’s back tattoo. Click on the magnifying glass to see the full shot.
At Comic-Con, creator Kurt Sutter said, “This season will be the most proactive for Jax. He’s driven, with a singular purpose. Rather than being a reactor to chaos, he will be the inciter. It’s almost like writing a brand new character.” So how to interpret the art: Does Jax’s determination to avenge Tara’s death turn the club into one collective Reaper? Will his personal pain ultimately lead to the death of his brothers and his club? Will three club members die—one for each eye and nose, which you could easily imagine as large bullet holes?

When Charlie Hunnam couldn’t make it to Sunday’s emotional Sons of Anarchy panel at Comic-Con, the actor knew he had to make it up to the fans. After all, this was the show’s last visit to Hall H.
Now, everyone can see the video Hunnam scripted himself to fill the void his absence left behind. SOA executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the short, told the crowd it was his all-time favorite scene to shoot because the guys—including castmates Tommy Flanagan, Mark Boone Junior, and Kim Coates—had so much fun making it.

UPDATE: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.
From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.
Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode.
EW has confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”

FX has released video of one of the highlights of Sons of Anarchy‘s Sunday Comic-Con panel: Creator Kurt Sutter being moved to tears as fellow exec producer Paris Barclay expressed his and the cast’s appreciation as they continue filming their final season.

As the close of Comic-Con 2014 neared, the Sons of Anarchy family assembled in Hall H to discuss the FX show’s upcoming seventh and final season with EW‘s own Sons authority Mandi Bierly. On the panel were creator Kurt Sutter, executive producer/director Paris Barclay, and stars Katey Sagal, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Theo Rossi, Dayton Callie, David Labrava, Niko Nicotera, and Drea de Matteo. Absent was Charlie Hunnam, who was unable to attend because he’s “doing important service for Vogue magazine,” as Sutter put it. But thanks to a crowd-pleasing video greeting Hunnam shot for Comic-Con, the afternoon wasn’t an entirely Jax-free affair.
(We’ll post the video as soon as it’s available online.)
Later in the session the opening sequence from season seven was screened, prompting Callie to say, “That just scared the hell out of me,” and prompting the crowd to lose its shit. The panel was equal parts emotional (Sutter teared up as Barclay described how rare it is to find a production, and show, as good as Sons) and interesting, with the discussion stoking plenty of anticipation for the roads ahead.

EW‘s popular Women Who Kick Ass panel returned to Hall H on Saturday with moderator Nicole Sperling welcoming Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal, American Horror Story‘s Sarah Paulson, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany, Sleepy Hollow‘s Nicole Beharie, and Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams and Natalie Dormer. Topics ranged from their most kickass moments, to what pisses them off about Hollywood, to what superhero they’d choose to be. READ FULL STORY
Sons of Anarchy is headed into its final season. Yet creator Kurt Sutter says the end of the road for FX’s biker hit has not yet been entirely mapped.
“Considering I’m a week-and-a-half behind writing episode 7, it could all change,” Sutter told reporters when asked about the series ending at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “I’ve always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I’ve learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are. And this season isn’t any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end … but things change. It’s always been heading in the same direction, but the way I’m getting there continues to change.”
Also, Sutter warns not to expect the final season to feel markedly different: “I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different,” Sutter said. “I really want it to feel like another season from Sons, only that when we’re done there’s probably not a whole lot more story to tell.”
And will there be closure? “We don’t fade to black in a diner,” Sutter assured, referencing the infamous ending of HBO’s The Sopranos.

FX has released a second teaser for the final season of Sons of Anarchy, which premieres Sept. 9. Watch “Final Ride” below. READ FULL STORY
If you thought that “Hell Awaits” season seven teaser for Sons of Anarchy‘s final ride seemed foreboding, check out the packaging for the Collector’s Set that fans will be able to pre-order at Comic-Con. Not only does it come in a wooden box (gun crate or coffin?), but also a custom re-creation of the iconic SAMCRO Reaper clubhouse table—which looks a lot like a tombstone when you stand it vertically.
The set will be available for pre-sale at the Fox booth #4229 in San Diego. When it’s released in November, it will include the first six seasons and a slot for season 7. The Comic-Con price tag—$150 for DVD and $200 for Blu-ray—does not include the final season.
Season six itself will be first available on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 26, ahead of the final season’s Sept. 9 premiere. Watch a deleted scene between Tara (Maggie Siff) and Eli (Rockmond Dunbar) from episode 603, “Poenitentia,” below.

The guest cast for Sons of Anarchy‘s final season continues to grow. Courtney Love, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for 1996’s The People vs. Larry Flynt, will do a multi-episode arc as Jax’s son Abel’s preschool teacher, Ms. Harrison. FX confirms she’ll make her first appearance in season 7’s fourth episode and that the character’s interest in Abel will rub his biological mother Wendy (series regular Drea de Matteo) the wrong way. TVLine first reported the casting. READ FULL STORY

Sons of Anarchy fans are nervous heading into the show’s final season, but here’s something good to look forward to: Walton Goggins will return as transgender escort Venus Van Dam. Creator Kurt Sutter confirmed it on Twitter (in NSFW language that properly conveys his own excitement).
Goggins, who could earn a guest performer Emmy nomination June 10 for the character’s emotional return in season six, had been vocal about wanting to play the role again. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see her again before this show is done. I’ll just say that,” he told EW last October. “She’s like a drug for me. And I think she’s like a drug for Kurt. Kurt and his writing staff did such a good job of creating this woman who is as strong as they come and now simultaneously as vulnerable as they come. I just… I miss her. I missed her the day that we wrapped, and I miss her now. I hope to be six inches taller than some of the members of the gang on Sons of Anarchy again, but we’ll see.” READ FULL STORY
