The 13-episode season kicks off with a special 90-minute premiere episode. Sons of Anarchy, is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's (MC) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that there simple, sheltered town of Charming, California which remains exactly that, charming. Season four begins with SAMCRO fresh out of jail and back into Charming. Upon their arrival, they encounter new law enforcement and head right back to business. The club is pressed with a decision that could challenge what SOA has always stood for and brings forth an unlikely alliance. With Jax fresh out of a jail and the birth of his newborn son, he is forced to put new plans into motion that could affect the club and ultimately his family. Sons of Anarchy is the #1-rated series in FX history. Sons of Anarchy first moved to the fall in its second season and saw its ratings increase upwards of +70% in viewership and all key demos. Sons of Anarchy was created by Executive Producer/Writer/Director Kurt Sutter and it stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal, who won the Golden Globe(R) Award for Best Actress in a Drama for her performance last season. The series is produced by Fox 21 and FX Productions.

A mainstay on FX's fall schedule since 2007, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia begins its seventh season on September 15, airing Thursdays at 10 PM ET/PT for 13 weeks. Sunny has grown into a huge success to become one of the top scripted comedies on cable. Last season, Dee got knocked up, Charlie and Dennis partied in Atlantic City, and Mac fought gay marriage in his own unique, misguided way. This season, tune in to see the Gang prepare for the apocalypse, hit the beach at the Jersey Shore, produce a child beauty pageant, and take a walk down memory lane at their high school reunion. As they say, some things never change, so prepare for more depraved schemes, half-baked arguments and absurdly underhanded plots to subvert one another.

The show is produced by FX Productions.

FX's new drama series American Horror Story makes its debut on October 5 and will run Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT.

Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as the Harmon's housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmon's housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance's daughter. The pilot episode of American Horror Story, shot in Los Angeles, was written by Murphy and Falchuk, and it was directed by Murphy. In addition to Murphy and Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto will also serve as Executive Producer of the series. American Horror Story is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
