FX Fall 2011 Premiere Dates: 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Always Sunny' and More
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
FX is having a good year. The cable network scored major Emmy nominations for Justified and Louie, it's currently airing the final season of Rescue Me and FX just announced its fall schedule, with five shows premiering in September and October.
The line-up includes one returning drama, three returning comedies and one of the most highly-anticipated new shows of the year, American Horror Story from the creators of Glee.
Here are the premiere dates for FX's fall schedule.
Sons of Anarchy (Tuesday, September 6 at 10pm)
The show's fourth season will begin right as Jax and the other motorcycle gang members are released from jail. They try to get back into business, but with new law enforcement and a new baby for Jax, it might not be that easy.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Thursday, September 15 at 10pm)
The show's seventh season will feature a child beauty paegeant, the Jersey shore, a high school reunion, and most importantly, Big Mac. Star Rob McElhenney gained a considerable amount of weight between seasons and he's now quite fat, which should offer a new bunch of jokes to replace Mac's obsession with his well-toned, hard-body physique.
Archer (Thursday, September 15 at 10:30pm)
The hilarious animated spy comedy is back for a limited time only with three new episodes, most likely as filler to give The League more time to prepare for its NFL lockout season.
American Horror Story (Wednesday, October 5 at 10pm)
One of the most mysterious shows of the fall, not much is known about this horror series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. We know it stars Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as a couple who move from Boston to Los Angeles to deal with some kind of serious problem. The show also features their teenage daughter, one of Ben's psychiatry patients, Oscar-winner Jessica Lange as a neighbor and True Blood's Denis O'Hare.
The League (Thursday, October 6 at 10:30pm)
The third season of this comedy about a group of friends in a fantasy football league is certainly going to be a little different, especially because of the NFL lockout. Since the fate of the football season itself is unknown, The League is surely going to have a hard time crafting a season to avoid being irrelevant.
