Starring Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman, Sons of Anarchy is an adrenaline drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club (MC) and its desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that: charming. The Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, hate groups and overzealous law officers. Behind the Mac's familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegally thriving arms business.

FX will repeat last night's season two premiere this Friday, Sept. 11 and Sunday, Sept. 13 both at 11:00 PM ET/PT.

In next week's second episode (Sept. 15), �Small Tears,� Jacks (Hunnam) makes a decision without the club's approval which doesn't sit well with Clay (Perlman), as it brings dangerous repercussions upon the MC. Following a traumatic event, Gemma (Sagal) turns to an unlikely source for support.

Sons of Anarchy airs every Tuesday at 10 PM ET/PT.

Sons were created by Kurt Sutter who also serves as Executive Producer along with John and Art Linson. The series is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21.
