The final days of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club: Redwood Original are in sight.
After seven seasons, FX's "Sons of Anarchy" is about to speed into its final season, bringing the violent journey of Jax Teller ("Pacific Rim" star Charlie Hunnam) to an end. FX has just announced that the biker drama, created by Kurt Sutter, will premiere its seventh and final season on September 9, with a premiere episode clocking in at one hour and 45 minutes.
To make the premiere even bigger, FX is launching an after show, "Anarchy Afterword," hosted by Chris Franjola; it'll air live on FX twice during the season, with the premiere and finale, and will be viewable online for all other episodes.
As for what to expect when SAMCRO opens for business one last time? Aside from a whole lot of meetings with Mr. Mayhem, here's what FX is willing to reveal about the final season:
"In season six Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) has finally solidified his leadership of Sons of Anarchy by murdering Clay Morrow, his stepfather, for past sins. Season Six ends with his formidable mother Gemma committing an unpardonable sin. Unbeknownst to Jax, she brutally murders his wife, Dr. Tara Knowles, thinking she’s protecting the club. Juice Ortiz kills Sheriff Eli Roosevelt to protect Gemma. Season Seven begins ten days later with Jax in jail on a parole violation, grappling with the loss of the woman he loved. With the club’s full support, he sets in motion the brutal machinations that will lead to complete and merciless retribution."
With so many betrayals and butcherings on the table, it's worth wondering if anyone will still be alive when the dust settles in Charming. Don't be surprised if the series ends with cancer-stricken former police chief Wayne Unser as the sole survivor; there are few things "Sons" loves more than lethal irony.
"Sons of Anarchy" returns on September 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
