Fans of the FX motorgang drama Sons of Anarchy are gearing up for the final season premiere this September 9th. The series first aired back in 2008 and was the first major role for Charlie Hunnam. Actors Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Maggie Siff, and Ron Perlman also had starring roles on the show. Kurt Sutter created and writes the show, and even takes a small supporting role as Otto Delaney, the Son serving a life sentence who works information for the club from inside prison. Sutter also wrote for and served as executive producer on The Shield with Michael Chiklis from 2005-2008 before going on to create SoA. If you’re a fan of the show and know what’s going on, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how crazy this season will be, especially since it will be the last!
