Jax and Tara - Sons of Anarchy Season 5: The New Crowned King and Queen of the Club (FX)

As is his habit, Kurt Sutter (@sutterink/ has been letting his fans in on the process of creating his show. He tends not to self-censor and sometimes takes a while to get to the point but Sutter usually does a good job of making his points. Follow him on (@sutterink) or just as good, his newly revamped web- portal,

In this video number #6 for season 5 of Sons Of Anarchy, he reaffirms how pleasant his dealings with FX have been and continue to be. That they never send him bossy notes, just notes sort of seeking clarification. Sutter also reiterates that Tara will have a good story as the Queen and he’s talking to our lady Ms. Maggie Siff right now. I suppose for this season anyway, that “Gemma Teller-Morrow”, who is of course flawlessly executed by Katey Sagal, will be the ‘Queen Mother.’

‘Now, back to the show.
So I just turned in the first draft of the season five premiere of Sons of Anarchy , entitled, Sovereign. The studio and network cancelled the notes call because they had none. That’s a message that’s music to a showrunner’s ears. No notes, is good notes. I will say that both Fox 21 and FX are very respectful of my process and have placed a lot of trust in my ability to deliver this show. Most of my notes are really questions. Not so much, “Don’t do that!” but “Why are you doing that?” It’s about making sure we’re all on the same page…So now I’m about six weeks into the season and I’m finally finding the groove. We’ve broken the first four episodes. Drafts of 503 and 504 are being written and I begin my draft of 502 today. It’s like the workload almost has to reach a certain pace for me to recognize my position…

SONS OF ANARCHY Season 5 Casting NEWS Jimmy Smits Joins #sonsofanarchy:

Jimmy Smits (NYPD Blue) is joining the upcoming fifth season Sons Of Anarchy  on FX for a ‘major, season-long arc’.

Smits will play Neron “Nero” Padilla, a Latino gang-banger with an exit strategy who becomes a dangerous mentor for Jax (Charlie Hunnam).

Jimmy Smits and Kim Delaney starred in NYPD BLUE

Smits has played bad guys before, most notably the scheming ADA Miguel Prado in another season-long arc on Showtime’s Dexter, but this marks a rare departure from Smits’ trademark shirt-and-suit look associated with most of his characters

 ‘Nero’ is envisioned as being heavily tattooed and definitely won’t be wearing a suit. He also is expected to be as dark and possibly even darker than Prado, a role that earned Smits an Emmy nomination. In addition to NYPD Blue and Dexter, Smits’ series credits also include LA Law, for which he won an Emmy, The West Wing and Outlaw… SOA has been renewed for a fifth and sixth season, with a seventh cycle considered a given after series creator Kurt Sutter was recently signed to a three-year deal.

@ sutterink shares a little backstory about JAX’s VP history in new WTFSutter LINK:

Good video. A bit over-explain-y about “Tara’s place in season 5 SOA,” though I think people keep asking Sutter this question especially considering the note that season 4 ended on and that he’d had Tara lose her marbles during the course of season 4. Will she get them back all the way–and keep them –or will she crack? is what Sutter says is what is on the draw board for Miss Siff.

I vote for strong and steely Tara. No more self-mutilation! More badassery (when called for). Not a “mama bear”-Gemma clone.

WTFSutter S5 1 KURT SUTTER: Writer’s Room In Full Swing:
Jax and Tara in it (together) ‘for better or worse.’
Kurt Sutter and his writers are in full swing and Sutter is now back to making his  infamous ‘ WTF Sutter’ weekly YouTube video updates on the progress of the show as well as taking the occasional fan question. Jax/Tara ‘shippers should be very pleased with Sutter’s first installment of WTFSutter for season 5. He takes just one fan question and it pertains to Jax and Tara! In responding, Sutter seems to be trying to sooth any worried  Jax & Tara fans that they will ever part permanently or willingly on SOA. I sort of thought that the final image of Season 4 (see above) would have been reassuring but understandably, with the offing/near offing of two of the Original 9 SOA members, ‘Piney,’ played by William Lucking and “Big Otto,’ played by Sutter himself, that fans might be a tad concerned for the welfare of the their favourite lovebirds. In addition ‘Kozik,’ played by Kenny Johnson was killed off and it looked like ‘Clay’ (Ron Perlman), another “Original 9er” was going to bite it as well. I’m guessing the mass kill was to set up the storyline for season 5 as well as clear the decks to make room for some new characters (scroll down to read more).

‘Anyway, writer’s room is in full swing. Big arcs loosely broken. New characters loosely defined. 501 on the board. We’ll finish beating it out tomorrow and I’ll start writing this weekend. My hope is to have four scripts completed before we begin production. All my actors’ options have been picked up, so everyone is scheduled to begin work mid-May.

‘Right now we have four new major characters for season 5. One is ‘Damon Pope’, who’s daughter Tig killed at the end of season 4. The other three characters… well, I’ll tell you this much. 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. Vague enough?’

Kurt Sutter Tweets 3-Year Extension for Sons of Anarchy:

FX has signed ‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter for seasons 6 & 7, which would see the series run until 2014.

 Even though FX renewed Sons of Anarchy  for season 5 in October 2011, they had yet to officially sign series creator Kurt Sutter for the upcoming season. Fortunately, not only has FX signed Sutter for a fifth season, but they also have him locked in for season 6 and 7 – if the network chooses to continue the series.

Announcing his new deal for Sons of Anarchy on Twitter, Sutter made sure to include a quip about how much easier it is to deal with FX than AMC: “closed my deal for 3 more years on SOA. no headlines, no pushed schedule, no stealing from paul. thank you FX and 20th for your generosity.”…

Continuing, Sutter made sure to clarify that his previous Tweet was in regards to himself, not Sons of Anarchy the series. Additionally, Sutter also hinted at the possibility of the series continuing beyond season 7:

‘…the 3 year deal is for season 5, and then if we get picked up, for 6 &7. if there is more story to tell beyond that, then we’ll decide then.’

While Sons of Anarchy season 7 would see the series through 2014 – and perhaps beyond – the real piece of information to take from Sutter’s tweet is the fact that he’ll have to decide whether or not he has more stories to tell at that time.

What this means – beyond allowing Sutter to possibly continue the series – is that Sutter currently has a general story-arc for Sons of Anarchy seasons 6 and 7 already planned – on top of the upcoming season 5, which is set to air September 2012.

Continuously referencing (as well as mirroring) elements from William Shakespeare’s famed tragedy “Hamlet”, Sons of Anarchy has always focused on Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) relationship with his stepfather Clay (Ron Perlman ) – but it wasn’t until the Sons of Anarchy season 4 finale that their relationship reached its tipping point.

After Jax ousted Clay as the head of the SAMCRO, all eyes are on Sons of Anarchy season 5 as the battle between step-father and step-son begins to take shape. And what, if anything, does Gemma (Katey Sagal) have to do with it?

Sons of Anarchy season 5 will premiere September 2012

keyart reduced 450x295 SONS OF ANARCHY Season 5 Kurt Sutter Tweets Sons At Paleyfest! #soafx #sonsofanarchy


Very exciting news that Sons of Anarchy will be featured at Paleyfest! If you’ve not either been to Paleyfest (I haven’t–yet) or watched excerpts from it, this will be a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal interaction with Sons Of Anarchy‘s many creative individuals from showrunner Sutter through most of the cast. I would love to attend this event. If you have an opportunity–go! If not, I’ll be pulling all the SOA scoop from the news reports and videos that come out of the 2-week-long celebration of television.


PaleyFest 2012: ‘Two and a Half Men,’ ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Added to Lineup

CBS’ Two and a Half Men, ABC’s Once Upon a Time and FX’s Sons of Anarchy have been added to the 2012 William S. Paley Television Festival.

The trio of shows join previously announced honorees Mad Men, Modern Family and American Horror Story as programming set for the March 2-14 festival, which returns to the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.

Veteran series Two and a Half Men and Sons of Anarchy will make their PaleyFest debut at the 29th annual festival, which will see FX’s freshman drama American Horror Story open the lineup and ABC’s Emmy darling Modern Family close the event.

Individual tickets for the event go on sale to Paley Center members Jan. 13, and Jan. 15 to the general public.

Additional honorees for the festival will be announced in the coming months.

Post Season 4 Katey Sagal Q &A:

One big reason for the success of SOA is the consistently jaw-dropping performance by Katey Sagal as Gemma Teller Morrow, a role that earned her a Golden Globe this year. Katey, who off-screen is married to SOA creator Kurt Sutter, chatted briefly about her big year:

Q:  Do you have a favorite moment from this past season?

A: Certainly one of the more challenging moments was in Episode 13 when I sort of filled Jax in on everything that was going on in those letters, what I found out about Clay … That was certainly a memorable moment for me to play. There are so many — I like the moment of finding the head in the chili. (Laughs) Those are two that come to mind.

Q: I think it’s exciting when you contribute to the soundtrack as well. Is that a collaboration at all?

A: No, Kurt pretty much writes in his ideas of music as he’s writing the script. He usually makes suggestions to me — “Can you sing this one? Can you try that one?” — so I don’t suggest the music. But he’s kind of made it a point that I sing at least one song each season.

Q: Do you know anything about next season yet?

A: I don’t. (Kurt) probably does — he probably has a large vision of the entire thing. But no, and it’s funny … I don’t really get into asking too much about that, because I like to find out as everybody else does.

Q: Do you watch any TV yourself?

A: Oh, yeah. I love TV. I think television’s so great right now, it’s hard to fit it all in. My guilty pleasure was that I just watched all five seasons of Friday Night Lights in about a two-month period. (Laughs) Oh, my god. I just loved it. I would watch it four or five episodes at a time on Netflix.

Right now I’m watching Homeland, which I love, and Boardwalk Empire. Mostly the cable dramas — I love Nurse Jackie when that’s on.

And this is so stupid, but I like some of those singing competition shows. I’m a big American Ido l watcher, and sometimes I like to watch America’s Got Talent. Those are big, corny admissions, but sometimes it’s so fun to see those kids really sing their hearts out.

Q: What would you say was your happiest moment of 2011?

A: You know, I’m very invested in my children. My oldest daughter’s a senior in high school, and their whole year is filled with these moments of “Oh my god, you’re a senior in high school!” and she’s getting ready to go to college. There are so many milestones she’s hitting right now that make me happy.

Generally, I find a lot to be grateful for. I can have some pretty happy moments if the day went smooth. I like when everything’s naturally moving along — I find that pretty exciting

Happy Holidays! See you back here for Season 5.
In the video (part 2) Kurt Sutter says that he will, similar to what he did this year, begin generating content as early as June, 2012. For my part however I will continue to cover Sons Of Anarchy-related news like the above-mentioned Paleyfest in March, as well as casting and production news that is bound to break prior to actual production of the series, which I believe begins around March of 2012, too. There’s certainly a lot more bound to be on the horizon before season 5 commences so be sure to check back!
