After months of agonizing, debating and waiting the season premiere of the 7th and final season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is finally here.
The final ride kicks off tonight at 10 P.M. (EST) on FX with episode 1, titled “Black Widower” and will run one hour and forty-five minutes.
Right after the episode there will be an after-show, called ‘Anarchy Afterwards’, where Kurt Sutter, Katey Sagal and Charlie Hunnam will all be on answering fan questions and analyzing the premiere.
Those who will miss the premiere episode can also catch the re-run, which will broadcast immediately following the premier and after-show at 12:30 A.M. (EST) or on demand, usually within 24 hours of the original broadcast.
In other news, the cast and crew walked their final red carpet Saturday night at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood California- you can see the video below.
Everyone was in attendance and looked to be having a great time taking pictures and embracing the madness although there were bittersweet moments as reality began to set in for some of the actors.
Katey Sagal was clearly sad at times as she posed for pictures, admitting that she is: ‘..in denial that it’s ending” (so are we!).
Her husband, show creator Kurt Sutter (who also played the role of Otto) looked more upbeat as he shook hands and took in the very much deserved praise as fans screamed for him.
Meanwhile Charlie Hunnam (Jax) and Mark Boone Junior (Bobby) were hugging and throwing kisses at each other while Kim Coates (Tigs) mugged it up for reporters and Theo Rossi (Juice) wore a Kool-Aid smile.
Along with all the original cast members, newcomers Lea Michele, Courtney Love, Annabeth Gish and Marilyn Manson were also there and the fans screamed just as loudly for them, officially welcoming them to the SOA family.
With he premiere a little over 24 hours away there is not much left to learn, but we did pick up a few new snippets of info. Here’s the latest news:
-Nero (Jimmy Smits) and Wendy (Drea DeMateo) will form a bond while taking a road trip to enroll Abel in school (hmm, if that bond turns romantic Wendy better remove all utensils when Gemma’s around).
-Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) will form a bond with the new sheriff, played by Annabeth Gish (hmm, there has been talk about Tommy being naked this season, so I’m guessing this bond IS romantic).
-Unser (Dayton Callie) will get a new job (poor Unser, it looks like he’ll never get Gemma, which is okay because her future isn’t looking to good).
Check out the red carpet video below and tell us how you feel about the show coming to an end.
