FX is kicking off its fall schedule with a special 90-minute premiere of Sons of Anarchy on Sept. 6.

The News Corp.-owned cable network will then roll out the season's four other new and returning originals — It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Archer and new addition American Horror Story — in the month or so that follows.

In a bid to expand the cult series' viewership, Archer returns with a three-week run behind Sunny on Sept. 15. The animated series will then come back with a more substantial 13 episodes in early 2012. Sunny is back the same evening, kicking off its seventh-season, 13-week run on Thursdays.

A few weeks later, on Oct. 5, FX will debut its hotly-anticipated Ryan Murphy-Brad Falchuk thrilled, Horror, which got its official pick-up this week. The net will follow up the next night, Oct. 6, with the third-season premiere of comedy The League.
