SAMCRO rides off into the Charming sunset: FX Announces 7th and Final Season Premiere of Sons of Anarchy.
Sons of Anarchy’s 7th and Final Season Will Premiere on Tuesday, September 9th at 10pm E/P With A Special 1 Hour and 45 Minute Episode
Immediately Following Premiere the Live Post-Show “Anarchy Afterword” Will Air in its Entirety For The First Time on FX
Hosted by Chris Franjola (Chelsea Lately) and produced by Emmy nominated Mob Scene Creative + Productions, “Afterword” will air live on FX twice this season – the season premiere and the series finale. It will stream live on FXNOW three other times throughout the season. The episodes will be posted on FXNOW as well as online the following day for VOD viewing and remain there until one month after the series finale. In addition to watching, fans of the show will have the opportunity to ask their own questions via a toll-free call-in number and the show’s official Twitter and Facebook pages.
Sons of Anarchy must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. Behind the MC’s familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegal arms business driven by the seduction of money, power, and blood.
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.
Sons of Anarchy‘s final season will be a musical one. The casting news is full of rockers. Courtney Love is cast as Abel’s school teacher, Marilyn Manson is cast as a prison white supremacist Nazi type, Ron Tully, a “white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax [Charlie Hunnam] uses to expand his power base.”
Love will play Ms. Harrison, the preschool teacher who is reportedly set to take a special interest in Abel…ergo Jax will, of course, take notice. With Tara dead, wonder how Wendy (Drea de Matteo) and mama Gemma (Katey Sagal) will take to this. I guess it depends on how much “Love” hair and makeup show Courtney’s character.
One of the first casting announcements was Annabeth Gish of “Mystic Pizza,” “Brotherhood” and FX’s “The Bridge”, cast as the new sheriff, because Rockmond Dunbar’s Sheriff Roosevelt also went tits up last season.
Gish’s character, Althea Jarry, is an experienced badass from Stockton’s Organized Crime Unit sent to solve the murderers of former Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Dr. Tara Knowles. Gish is a smart, fierce choice to go toe-to-toe with the Charming Alpha female, Gemma Teller.
The series needs this intense female shot in the arm along with the dude stuff, as the show energetically changed with the void of Ally Walker’s caustic bitch-on-wheels, Agent June Stahl, whose scenes with Katey Sagal were electric until Opie (Ryan Hurst) checked her out from planet Earth.
Manson spoke about his excitement over being cast in the role in a FX press release:
“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson explained. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
So, tell me SOA famiglia, talk back below and list who is going to die, in order, SAMCRO, rival gangs, collateral characters…and tell me why you think they are marked and as the series progresses, we will see how clever you are as it unfurls this September.
