Sons of Anarchy Season 4 production is in full gear and FX Networks has just released the first set of behind-the-scenes promo pictures for the upcoming season.
Although season 3 ended with the motorcycle club going off to prison, these promo pics are all from scenes that take place outside of penitentiary walls. Hopefully, that means this season will start off without SAMCRO in jail, giving the characters a chance to allow the shocking and bloody events from last season to set in.
The most noticeable changes are in the hairstyles of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) and Juice (Theo Ortiz). In the photos, you’ll see Hunnam with a short cut hairstyle and Juice with a full head of hair. During Season 3 it was revealed that Tara (Maggie Siff) was pregnant. However, we don’t see a baby bump in any of the photos since we’ll also bypass any on-screen pregnancies.
Other pictures include the cast sitting a table read for one of the scripts, Kim Coates (who stars as Tig) getting into makeup and Piney (William Lucking) wearing a suit. There’s also a great shot of Katey Sagal (who stars as Gemma) and Kurt Sutter going over the script together.
While hairstyles may have changed, fans will be looking forward to seeing how the new dynamic between Jax, Tara, Gemma and Clay (Ron Perlman) develops. Following the trip to Belfast, Jax learned about his father’s indiscretions as well as his half sister. In a letter to his mother, it appeared that Jax was moving away from the lifestyle desired for him by his father John Teller and closer towards the life set forth by Clay and Gemma. Tara, however, learned from one of John letters that Clay and Gemma may have been responsible for John’s death.
Sons of Anarchy returns for season 4 this Fall on FX.
