Sons of Anarchy season 7 will include multiple new characters, including the previously announced Alice Johnson, an uptight sheriff with an edgy sense of humor.

Now some details about several others have been revealed.

One will be a soldier who doesn’t put up with any [expletive], while another will be an “imposing” jail guard, according to Entertainment Weekly.

TVLine had reported earlier this month that FX is casting the recurring role of Johnson. 

She’s a fit, Caucasian 40-something who’s serious about her work but also boasts an edgy humor.

Earlier this year, other cast commitments were clarified through media reports and by show creator Kurt Sutter. CCH Pounder (DA Tyne Patterson) and Kim Dickens (Colette Jane) will appear in the final season but only in a limited capacity, two to four episodes each.

Drea de Matteo (Wendy Case) was promoted to a series regular, while Jimmy Smits (Nero Padilla) and Peter Weller (Charles Barosky) are among the regulars returning along with others such as Katey Sagal (Gemma Morrow) and Charlie Hunnam (Jax Teller).

Meanwhile, the actors will get the first script soon as work for episodes 1 and 2 is done and work for episodes 3, 4, 5, and 6 is under various stages of development.

As for a projected premiere date, Sons is confirmed to premiere in September 2014. 

In the previous six seasons, the latest in September the show has premiered has been September 11. There’s only two Tuesdays that early this September–September 2 and September 9. The latter is more likely because the show has also never premiered before September 3.
