Sons Of Anarchy Season 7 Teaser Trailer

soa

FX studios has released the first official trailer for the new and final season of their hit tv show, Sons Of Anarchy. The teaser doesnt really show much, all it is is just the main character Jax, cruising on his chopper at night and as his face goes bright to dark due to the street lights, his face flashes from human to skeleton and back to human. Im speculating that either he might die or he will kill very important characters from the show. A reason for my speculation is because the title for this teaser is “Hell Awaits”. I cant wait for this new season to come out which is set for a release sometime in September in this year’s tv show season. Check out the teaser below and give me your thoughts on what it might mean for Jax in the comments.
