New photos of Sons of Anarchy Season 7 have just been released by FX Vice President of Media Relations Dominic Pagone. Pagone posted the photos to his Twitter account and we have them here for you to see.
A number of photos are behind-the-scenes shots. The stars appear to be taking breaks between takes and setting up for different scenes to shoot. The main picture depicts Mark Boone Junior (Bobby Elvis), Niko Nicotera (Ratboy), Charlie Hunnam (Jax), David LaBrava (Happy), Tommy Flanagan (Chibs), and Kim Coates (Tig). The photo is in black and white and they all have the dramatic imposing look the motorcycle gang is known for.
In other SOA photos, Theo Rossi (Juice), Katey Sagal (Gemma), and Drea de Matteo (Wendy) are seen in color photos. Drea has a particularly vengeful look on her face, which Season 7 will have plenty of among all the characters!
Maggie Siff, who portrayed Tara Knowles, was killed off in Season 6. When she was asked by Zap2it if she thinks Sons of Anarchy Season 7 will end happily, she said she doesn't believe so. She thinks there will be a lot of redemption for the characters who have it coming, however. Last year, SOA creator Kurt Sutter hinted as much when he said the show won't necessarily have a happy ending, but a lot of things come full circle as far as redemption is concerned.
Siff talks about her experience after Tara was killed off the show in Season 6:
"I encounter it in weird ways. You know, like when I go to the supermarket. A woman walked up to me yesterday in the supermarket crying. I feel like there are certain women who were really, really moved and were like 'Oh my God, what happened?' and were genuinely shocked."
It probably wasn't an easy decision for Sutter to kill Tara off because he told Entertainment Weekly he has to be cautious about which ones must go:
"It would be difficult if I got rid of characters like Tig and Juice and Chibs, especially with Opie gone. They feel like family to people. You have to be very careful not to be arbitrary in terms of who lives and who dies."
Spoilers for the show come out whenever Kurt Sutter or someone at FX want fans to see them. This will be a paramount season for viewers as they watch what happens to the characters at the end.
Sons of Anarchy Season 7 premieres this Fall 2014 on FX. An official date is pending.
