Jimmy Smits Books Return to Sons of Anarchy

by at . Comments

Look who else is coming back to Charming!

Following the news that Donal Logue will appear on multiple episodes of Sons of Anarchy Season 6, we can now also confirm that Jimmy Smits will reprise the role of Nero Padilla later this year. On a full-time basis.

Nero with Jax

The charismatic "companionator" cozied up to Gemma on Sons of Anarchy Season 5 and also struck up an alliance with Jax. When we last left him, Nero had returned to his former gang banging ways.

Look for Smits to appear on all 13 Season 6 episodes, as the show heads into production this summer for a fall premiere.
