The 2014 holiday season is getting off to a bloody start thanks to SAMCRO.
FX's gritty biker drama is set to air its series finale on Tuesday, Dec. 9. The very next day, fans not ready to say goodbye to the world of Charming will be able to buy a behind-the-scenes companion guide, Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition.
"Anyone who is a true fan of Sons of Anarchy needs this book. It's the perfect—and only—commemorative edition that captures the true spirit of the series," creator Kurt Sutter, who wrote a special introduction for the 208-page book, said in a statement.
But before we get to the end, we have to start with the beginning of the end as the seventh and final season's premiere is just around the corner on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
The premiere episode, "Black Widower," will be super-sized (clocking in at a whopping one hour and 45 minutes long) and FX is airing a post-show, Anarchy Afterward, immediately following the premiere, which is hosted by Chelsea Lately's Chris Fanjola.
And SOA fans should expect to see a whole lot of bloodshed in the seventh season, with star Theo Rossi telling us, "People are dropping like flies, literally, every two seconds you're like, 'Oh, that person's gone.' There's always a big clap-off it feels, every scene, every episode, somebody's leaving."
The final season will also feature some pretty surprising guest stars, including Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love and Glee star Lea Michele, who is set to play Gertie, "an empathetic truck stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma during a difficult time."
