Though the premiere of season 7 of “Sons of Anarchy” is still months away, casting news and other updates have been slowly trickling out. On April 6, The Epoch Times reported that characters Ratboy and Happy have been made series regulars for the upcoming season.
Who’s Coming Back?
Niko Nicotera who plays Ratboy Skogstram and David Labrava who plays Happy were promoted to series regulars for the final season of the FX show. They join Drea de Matteo who plays Wendy as series regulars. De Matteo’s announcement came earlier this year.
Other casting confirmations include the return of Jimmy Smits as Nero and Peter Weller as Charles Barosky. Still uncertain are the returns of Kim Dickens as Collette and CCH Pounder as Tyne Patterson.
Another rumor is that Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad” could turn up on the show as Jax’s long lost brother. That rumor was started by Sutter himself and as yet has neither been confirmed nor denied.
Who Will Die?
Fans can expect more deaths in the final season. Following the deaths of both Clay and Tara in season 6 though, show creator Kurt Sutter has said he doesn’t kill off the main characters easily.
“It would be difficult if I got rid of characters like Tig and Juice and Chibs, especially with Opie gone. They feel like family to people,” he said. “You have to be very careful not to be arbitrary in terms of who lives and who dies.”
"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 is scheduled to begin in September.
