FX's Sons of Anarchy is set to begin filming its sophomore season at the end of April, a report on the network's site says. Creator Kurt Sutter, for his part, previously said that the follow-up to its successful debut run will air around the same time this year, which should be sometime around September.
TV Guide adds, meanwhile, that shooting for the first of the 13-episode order will wrap up in mid-May. Moreover, while no return date for Sons of Anarchy season 2 has been given by FX, the network reported an addition to the cast on the upcoming season, in the person of singer-songwriter and actor Henry Rollins, who will appear in a six-episode arc.
Rollins, 48, will play a new antagonist in the show's fictional town of Charming, California who poses a deadly threat to our beloved SOA Motorcycle Club.
Henry will bring his intensity and muscularity to this complex part, said Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of FX's Original Programming Division. We look forward to seeing him inhabit this role.
As far as the direction of Sons of Anarchy season 2 is concerned, Sutter revealed that the season will feature more alliances, after the MC community has generally embraced the show. I wouldn't change anything, but I am aware of the feedback. I will push. It's my nature, said Sutter.
Sons of Anarchy was renewed thanks to some 5.4 million people who tuned in to watch the outlaw motorcycle gang. According to the network, it was its most consistent first-year drama since Rescue Me.
Rollins broke into mainstream popularity as lead singer of the Los Angeles band Black Flag. He later won a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word or Non-musical Album for Get in the Van. He appeared opposite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys 2.
Sons of Anarchy stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman.
