Sons of Anarchy at the TCAs: All About the Club

at . Comments

While referring to season three as "bold and brave," even Sons of Anarchy star (and TV Fanatic!) Katey Sagal admitted at today's Television Critics Association press panel that the group was spread far apart.

But "this season feels different, but splintered in another way," she told reporters. "There's a lot of internal struggle that goes on this season."

Farewell, Clay

Yes, there will be external pressure and new foes for SAMCRO to go up against after the members completely their 14-month prison break on the premiere - Ray McKinnon portrays a prosecutor and Rockmond Dunbar is on board as Charming's new sheriff - but the "idea always is to use those external pressures to incubate what's going on inside the club," previewed creator Kurt Sutter.

Emmy winner Paris Barclay, meanwhile, has taken over as executive producer and lead director, comparing Sutter to David Milch and Aaron Sorkin and saying: "You only get maybe two or three chances to find a show where the passion is as good as the writing is as good as the cast."

We couldn't agree more.

Season four of Sons of Anarchy gets underway with a 90-minute premiere on September 6. Set your DVR and save TV Fanatic as a bookmark. We'll be there every step of the tension-filled way.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
