FX today confirmed that the seventh season of biker drama Sons of Anarchy will be the show’s last and that the final run of 13 episodes will premiere on Tuesday September 9th at 10/9c.
The seventh season premiere will run an extended length of one hour and forty five minutes and will be followed by live-show Anarchy Afterword, which is hosted by Chris Franjola. FX said that Anarchy Afterword, which is produced by Mob Scene Creative + Productions, will air twice this season: after the season premiere and after the series finale.
In addition to confirming the super-sized season premiere, FX has also released the first synopsis for the final season. The show’s seventh season opens 10 days after the sixth season finale and finds “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”.
Last year, the biker drama fronted by Charlie Hunman broke FX’s ratings records to become the most-watched season of any FX original in the history of the network in total viewers, A18-49 and other key demos. Across season six, Sons of Anarchy averaged 7.48 million Total Viewers and 5.11 million Adults 18-49 – the show’s highest rated run to date.
