by at . Comments

Sons of Anarchy has added another major name to season five.

Pope, of course, was mentioned but not seen on the Sons of Anarchy Season 4 finale, after Tig ran over and killed his daughter in a high speed chase. Creator Kurt Sutter has made it clear that this Oakland-based gangster will be seeking revenge when SOA returns some time in September.

Filming on new episodes commenced this week and you can take a look now at what other characters Sutter has teased will come on board Sons of Anarchy Season 5.
