‘Sons of Anarchy’ brings back Jimmy Smits for Season Six
These two have real chemistry! I’m super-happy he’ll be back for another season!
Smits made his debut as the gangster Nero Padilla in Season 5, where he romanced Katey Segal‘s Gemma and assisted Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and the rest of his motorcycle club deal with their enemies. He’ll reportedly be appearing in all 13 episodes of Season 6, but won’t be credited as a series regular.
Another familiar face returning to “SOA” in Season 6 is Donal Logue, reprising his role as pissed-off sociopathic ex-US Marshall, Lee Toric. He has a score to settle with Tara(!) because she aided’ now-tongue-less big Otto (Kurt Sutter) in providing the over-size crucifix that belong to his deceased wife Leanne, to stab Lee Toric’s sister-the-prison-nurse in the throat.
SOA currently stands as FX’s highest-rated series ever, is slated to start production on Season 6 in early summer prior to it’s fall 2013 launch.

How Gemma maneuvers Nero into her life will be a delicious watch. We know how she feels about “squatty Guaties,” (season 3) – so it will be fun to see what lines the writers pen for her as she melds with Nero’s Mexican-American surroundings. Also back in for more is cryptic revenge filled scheming is former U.S. marshal Lee Toric (Donal Logue), still seething over his character’s sister’s murder (played by Logue’s real sister Karina Logue) who Otto impaled with a cross. Dr. Tara (Maggie Siff) is »
‘Sons of Anarchy’ brings back Jimmy Smits for Season 6
“Jimmy adds such a gravitas to the show,” “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter said following the Season 5 finale. “I love bringing that new culture into the show, his sort of Latino past and that energy. Mixing that into our world is really fascinating to me. I love the relationships going on with he and Gemma. I would love to bring Jimmy back. We left it sort of open-ended because I wasn’t sure of his availability.
