charlie hunnam soa s4 'Sons of Anarchy' Season 4 pics: Jax's new haircut and moreSeason 4 of “Sons of Anarchy” begins 14 months after the end of Season 3, with several members of SAMCRO walking out of prison and heading back to Charming.

The town they return to isn’t the one they left — Charming has a new mayor and sheriff who have very different ambitions for the town than the club does. Those external pressures will also give rise to internal conflicts, creator Kurt Sutter said last week at the Television Critics Association press tour. But judging by the first pictures from the Sept. 6 season premiere, the guys are mostly just happy to be free again.

Oh, and Jax (Charlie Hunnam) has a new haircut, as you can see above. He went short while he was in the joint. Here are some more pics from the season premiere, starting with SAMCRO saddled up outside the prison.
