TV Blog Buzz: News on next seasons of 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Homeland,' 'Big Bang'

The ending for “Sons of Anarchy” still hasn’t been fully mapped out but the biker drama’s final season is set to be just as bloody and explosive as fans would expect, says creator Kurt Sutter.

While at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., Sutter revealed a few details about how the show’s seventh season is shaping up.

He says the last season probably won’t feel any different than the preceding six, even though it’s wrapping the story for SAMCRO.

“I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different,” Sutter said. “I really want it to feel like another season from Sons, only that when we’re done there’s probably not a whole lot more story to tell.”

Entertainment Weekly reports that star Charlie Hunnam also said the season will kick off with his character Jax enraged and seeking revenge for the shocking murder that ended season 6.

“He’s obviously very sad and vulnerable and kind of broken, but there’s a huge amount of vengeance and anger in his heart … He knows what he wants to do, and that’s where all his energy is going. He can’t get away from the fact that the love of his life has been taken from him,” Hunnam said.



The next season of “Homeland” is just around the corner and that show’s creators say they’re ready to leave the Brodys behind.

That’s welcomed news to the many fans who loved to hate the whole Brody clan, particularly Marine-turned-villain-turned-hero-again Nicholas and his dour daughter Dana.

The new season sees Carrie (played by Claire Danes) accepting a promotion and moving to Pakistan, which the show’s writers planned for her years ago.

“It’s just taken us three seasons to get there instead of one,” said creator Alex Gansa, according to the L.A. Times.

Season 4 of “Homeland” kicks off on Oct. 5.



Ongoing contract negotiations are threatening the start of the new season of “The Big Bang Theory” but show creator Chuck Lorre isn’t worried. In fact, he’s eagerly talking about where the nerdy comedy is going in its eighth season, with big changes ahead for Penny, played by Kaley Cuoco. She’s looking to drop acting in favour of a brainier pursuit.

“She gets a shot to be a pharmaceutical rep at Bernadette’s company,” said Lorre at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“She’s going to start making some money, which will unbalance (her relationship with Leonard) as the power shifts…. She’s going to find some confidence and self-esteem, which acting does not provide in great heaping doses.”
