Fans of FX’s hit show “Sons of Anarchy” who want a piece of Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman or anyone else in the cast now have their chance. The network is launching an app that will follow along with the show and let viewers buy products that appear on screen.

The app will be called “SOA Gear” and will launch on Nov. 1, when the ninth episode this season is slated to air. The app will “listen” for audio clues in the show to function, but can also work manually or with a timer that the user sets at the beginning of the show.

In addition to the jewelry and clothing seen on the show and worn by cast members, the app will also give fans exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and other content designed to engage audiences.


It’s been a record season for the show, with an average of 5.8 million viewers per episode so far this year, up 30% over season three. Earlier this week, “Sons of Anarchy” got picked up for season five by the network.

Hunnam isn’t doing too shabby either. He’s starring in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming movie “Pacific Rim” which will be out in 2013.
