‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 6 spoilers: Time jump chatter and more

Sons of AnarchyFor those of you who caught “Sons of Anarchy” executive producer Kurt Sutter’s latest Twitter Q&A session on Tuesday night, then you are already well aware of some of the following scoop. For those who didn’t and have some sort of aversion to social media, we finally have at least one detail about the upcoming season 6 premiere airing this fall on FX.

While there are a good percentage of Sutter’s responses to fans that are comedic, he did say in a serious moment that the premiere is going to jump forward mere days after Tara’s arrest and the other events at the end of season 5, which means that Sutter is not going to gloss over some of the difficult transition parts of the story. For many shows, they like to jump the story forward in new seasons in order to go along with the actors aging, and to also create a new set of circumstances for the characters that is somewhat freed up from the events of the past. Luckily, that doesn’t appear to be happening here unless there is a jump happening further on down the line.

As for some quick hits pertaining to actors, Sutter said that he is hoping to have Billy Brown back for some more work as August, and we’d personally love to see it so long as he doesn’t get killed off as quickly as he has in (spoiler!) both “The Following” and “Dexter” in the past year. On a more random note, he didn’t shut the door completely on possibly casting the rehab-bound Lindsay Lohan for a guest-starring role, which may not be too big of a surprise in that he has taken chances on a variety of guest stars in the past, including musicians (Dave Navarro), actors with checkered pasts, and people with little experience in drama (Joel McHale).

Do you think a shorter time jump is the right move for at least the start of the season? In addition to sharing your thoughts below, be sure to also watch Sutter’s latest video about a meeting with Charlie Hunnam over at the link here.
