'Sons of Anarchy' begins Season 6 Sept. 10 with more mayhem

"Sons of Anarchy" begins its sixth season at 9 p.m. CT Sept. 10 with a special 90-minute episode, FX announced Wednesday.

The sixth season of FX's top-rated drama, creator Kart Sutter teased at San Diego Comic-Con International, will up the violence in what has always been a bloody series about the outlaw motorcycle club SAMCRO and the "family" it has created. During the show's Sunday panel, he also confirmed the show will conclude with its seventh season.

"My goal is to be able to tell the story I wanted to," he said. "I never wanted us to overstay our welcome."

He also suggested the mayhem will continue through to the series finale. "At a certain point, the shit just has to hit the fan. And for it to stay real and believable, it has to find its endgame," he said, adding that endgame will be "a pool of blood."

The upcoming sixth season will set up that endgame, however, and sees Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) running SAMCRO as its new president after he framed his stepfather and the club's former president, the now imprisoned Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), for the murder of Damon Pope. Jax must face the consequences of the MC's illicit deeds before they tear the club apart.

Jax is in full control of the MC, but his family life is suffering from his single-minded pursuit of John Teller's vision. Jax must find a way to keep his old lady, Dr. Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff), from going to prison for conspiracy to commit murder while rebuilding his club and breaking from the cycle of violence and greed that ultimately led to his best friend's death.

"I think that he hadn't anticipated quite how difficult it was going to be to lead, partly because of the shit-show that he inherited from Clay Morrow," Hunnam said at the panel. "Can he be the leader of this outlaw organization and still be a loving father and devoted father?"

Tara and Jax's mother, Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal), will continue their rivalry in the upcoming season.
