Sons of Anarchy rides again, and a comic book

Sons of Anarchy returns to FX on Sept. 10 with a 90-minute episode. The next day, a Sons of Anarchy comic book will also be released.

Break out your leather jacket and get ready for some dust-ups; "Sons of Anarchy" has received a Season 6 premiere date.

The upcoming season of FX's hit biker drama will premiere Sept. 10 at 10 p.m. with a special 90-minute episode, the network said Wednesday.

The series, which stars "Pacific Rim" actor Charlie Hunnam as biker-gang leader Jackson "Jax" Teller, who in the show's sixth season will find his family life suffering as he pursues the more idealistic vision of the SAMCRO motorcycle club that his deceased father, John Teller, had.

Season 5 of the series was the show's most-watched yet, averaging 6.4 million total viewers, with 4.4 million of them in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic.

The biker drama has inspired a comic book, which will launch Sept. 11 through a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and BOOM! Studios, which publishes such comics and graphic novels as "Adventure Time," "2 Guns" and "28 Days Later."

The hit drama will be brought into the comic-book realm by a creative team that includes writer Christopher Golden ("Hellboy"), artist Damian Couceiro ("Incorruptible") and cover artist Garry Brown ("X-Men," "Spider-Man").

BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie said that the "Sons of Anarchy" comics will add to the show's mythology "in a way that is authentic and meaningful."

"Our team at BOOM! Studios includes some of the biggest fans of 'Sons of Anarchy' and with our long-time desire to create a comic series around the show now a reality, we couldn't be more excited," Richie said. "We are focused on adding to the mythology of the show in a way that is authentic and meaningful, while working closely alongside ['Sons of Anarchy' creator] Kurt [Sutter], FX and Fox so that the fans get the best experience from a 'Sons of Anarchy' comic."
