Speaking at the Television Critics Association preview night on Monday, lead actor Charlie Hunnam told reporters that "Jax is in a very schizophrenic state, he's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart." Of course this is a result of the events in the final episode of the sixth season, which aired at the end of 2013. The shocking betrayal of Jax by his mother Gemma astounded fans and critics, and the fallout is sure to be massive when the show returns on September 9th. 

Charlie HunnamHunnam has played Jax since the very first episode of 'Sons of Anarchy' which aired in 2008.

The show has a strong fan base and often receives positive reviews, but has failed to pick up as many accolades as other FX shows such as 'Damages' and 'The Shield'. However, Hunnam stated he was more concerned with delivering a satisfying end to the series for fans than winning awards. "It doesn't matter at all," he said. "I feel there's this perception that we're upset about it. I really don't give a sh--. I make this for the people who love the show."

The final season also boasts some familiar faces joining the cast: rockers Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson. Love will play the teacher of Jax's young son Abel in what has been described as a pivotal role, whilst Manson will be seen as Ron Tully, a powerful white supremecist who has ties to the local prison. Love and Manson are not the first unlikely celebrities to guest star on the show; past familiar faces that turned up in the town of Charming include author Stephen King and Baywatch icon David Hasselhoff.
