The special one hour and 45 minute premiere episode will be followed by a live post-show, "Anarchy Afterwords," hosted by Chris Franjola ("Chelsea Lately"), that will also air following the show's series finale, and stream live on FXNow three other times during the season. Fans will be able to ask questions via a toll-free call-in number, as well as social media.

"Sons of Anarchy" is just the latest cable drama to get an after show, joining the popular "Talking Dead," a post-show for AMC's "Walking Dead," and "After Hours" on A&E, an after show for "Bates Motel."

FX previously announced that rockers Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love have joined the cast of "Sons of Anarchy" for Season 7 in recurring roles along with "The Bridge" star Annabelle Gish as the new Charming sheriff. Walton Goggins ("Justified") will also make a return appearance as Venus Van Dam, while Malcolm-Jamal Warner ("The Cosby Show") will guest star in at least two episodes.

The final season will pick up 10 days after the Season 6 finale, with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in jail on a parole violation, planning to avenge the murder of his wife Tara (Maggie Siff). Entertainment Weekly recently released the first photo from the seventh season (seen above) featuring Jax in an orange prison suit alongside Manson, who plays white supremacist shot-caller Ron Tully.

According to HitFix, the sixth season averaged 7.48 million total viewers and 5.11 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic, making it FX's most-watched season of an original series to date.

The show also stars Katey Sagal, Jimmy Smits, Peter Weller, Drea de Matteo, David LaBrava, Niko Nicotera, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Jr. and Tommy Flanagan.

"Sons of Anarchy" Season 7 will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 10/9 p.m. CT on FX.
