A mild flurry of casting news has come from KURT SUTTER and the SONS OF ANARCHY CAMP in the past few days as production ramps up for the sixth season of what has come to be one of the best shows on television.
Before we hit the cast additions, KURT SUTTER Twitter on Tuesday to say that season 6 will be “hands down, the most violent season to date”. Let that sink in for a second. More violent than Opie’s terrific/terrifying death scene from last season? I can’t wait to see what’s in store. Now compare that comment to what he was saying before season 5 about a lot of Sons’ blood being shed within the club. That definitely turned out to be true, but is the violence being referenced here going to mean more SAMCRO deaths? Perhaps at the hands of Lee Toric and his crazy-extensive arsenal? Guaranteed that KURT SUTTER will keep us on our toes for sure.
Announced yesterday, CCH POUNDER from THE SHIELD-fame will be joining the cast of season 6 for a multi-episode arc as a district attorney that gets wrapped up with the club. KIM DICKENS from DEADWOOD will also join alongside the returning DONAL LOGUE and JIMMY SMITS who was upgraded to series regular.
No premiere date yet, although we can probably expect sometime around September like usual.
