"Sons Of Anarchy" Updates

Sneak Peek footage, creator Kurt Sutter's latest "WTF" video and more fresh insights into Season 6 of the FX 'biker' TV series "Sons of Anarchy" Season 6, debuting September 10, 2013.

"There’s a lot of blood and guts in my show," said series creator Kurt Sutter. "It is a signature of the show, but nothing is done gratuitously. 

"The events that happen in the premiere are really the catalyst for the third act of this morality play that we’re doing..."

"I had just a very vague relationship with motorcycles before," said Hunnam. "And then, I got the show. Living in Los Angeles, it’s always frustrating to get around, so much so that it really inhibited my desire to go out into the world.

"I just had this epiphany, the first day on set, riding a bike around, that this is the way I want to get around. I just love it. There’s just a sense of freedom and a sense of being a part of the environment around you. It’s fun riding a bike. You smell the flowers, and you smell the garbage..."

As for the new Boom! Studios' upcoming graphic novel series, Sutter said "I’m excited about it. We had talked about ways to keep the mythology alive...

"...the graphic novel was the first step to do that, and I’m very pleased with the drafts that I’ve seen...

"Essentially, what it will be, is parallel stories, so that it won’t touch on any of the mythology that we’ve created, but will have characters, that will be secondary characters, that will intervene and cross through that...

"There will be intersecting narrative points, but nothing that impacts or influences the mythology that we’ve created, or where we want to go with the mythology... It will  create new characters and it will live in this parallel universe..."

"I have a loose structure and blueprint that I go into every season with, for the big mile markers. I have a sense of where I want to begin and where I want to end, and I have a great team of writers that really hang the meat on all those episodes...

"What I’ve learned, over time, is that the looser I hold on to those ideas, the better the seasons are. When I loosen my grip, I let the season take on a life of its own. 

"It’s why I don’t like to get too far ahead, in terms of production and writing. I like to feel out where the first few episodes are going, and what’s working and not working, but I tend to have a loose grip.

"In a nutshell, it’s a dream come true, to be given a character like this," said Hunnam about his character 'Jax Teller'.

"When I met Kurt and read this script, initially, I was at a really low period of my career. I had a burning desire to go and do some really meaty work, and I just wasn’t getting the roles. I would meet directors, and they would be interested in hiring me, primarily in the film world, and then the studios would say that I wasn’t a viable enough commodity to support the infrastructure of getting the thing made. 

"So, it was a really difficult time for me, and I just had this burning desire to do some of the type of work that I’d always dreamed of doing. And then, Kurt’s script came along and it just blew me away..."
