It’ll be thunder and fury when “Sons of Anarchy” returns for its fourth season. In the season premiere, the guys leave prison, a follow-up to last season’s final episode. During the weekend’s “Sons” panel at Comic-Con, the show’s executive producer Kurt Sutter and star Charlie Hunnam, as well as Ron Pearlman and Katey Sagal, explained the guys spent 14 months in jail and emerge with more than new haircuts.

“We all come out with a real head of steam, a little tougher than we were, if you can imagine that,” said Hunnam. “We’re a little less patient.” He added, “That 14 months was spent doing some pretty intense soul-searching and trying to figure out how he’s going to balance his life in the club and how to look after his babies… Some difficult decisions are going to have to be made down the line.”





Other than the time jump, spoilers were in short supply. But Sutter took to his blog with news that fans will get some extra scenes showing what happened while the “Sons” were in prison. “We looked at the arc of the season and asked ourselves what scenes would be cool to show the audience,” he wrote. “Which moments have the most emotional and narrative punch? So we wrote four scenes and built them into the schedule of the first two episodes. Three of these scenes will preview before the premier, one will be exclusive to the season 3 DVD. Look for the extra scenes to debut on the SOA iPhone and Android app before a wider release.

The new season of “Sons” premieres September 6 (set your DVR by clicking the “record series” button here) – and no one is more anxious than Sutter. “The biggest gripe I get from fans is the fact that we only do 13 episodes and that you have to wait so long between seasons,” he wrote. “I will point out that we pack more story and chaos into 13 episodes than most shows do in 24. That being said, I understand the frustration with the long down time. I hate waiting for my favorite shows to come back on the air. Right now I’m already lamenting the fact that Louie is almost halfway through his season. Man, I f—ing love that show.”
