As buzz builds for the upcoming fifth season of “Sons of Anarchy” comes an intriguing tidbit about what led to “Anarchy.”
Showrunner Kurt Sutter revealed that “he’d love to do a prequel about the formation of the club” during “SOA’s” panel at Comic-Con over the weekend.
Sutter has, in fact, already discussed the idea with FX execs, but he didn’t offer any other details about the possibility of an origins story rolling onto TV screens any time soon.
But there’s plenty else for “SOA” fans to look forward to. The network released the first seven-minutes of the season premiere to the Comic-Con crowd — with 30 seconds of it blacked out for “content reasons,” according to Deadline, which Sutter later revealed was an “explicit” sex scene between Katey Sagal and guest star Jimmy Smits.
The 90-minutes Season 5 premiere of “Sons of Anarchy” airs Tuesday, Sept. 11 on FX.
It was also announced over the weekend that “Community” and “The Soup” funnyman Joel McHale has been cast in a serious role on “Anarchy” for a multi-episode arc playing a con man who becomes intertwined with the gang.
In addition to Smits and McHale, next season’s guest stars also include the curious casting of “High School Musical’s” Ashley Tisdale as an escort.
Indeed, there’s much to look forward to when Season 5 hits the road this fall.
