FX Schedules Three Returns, Plans for New Comedy - Featured

FX's fall schedule includes the return of three series and the arrival of one new comedy, the network announced Tuesday.

The lineup starts Sept. 8 with the return of Sons of Anarchy, which will now air on Tuesdays at 10 pm/ET.

The gritty motorcycle drama's first season topped the 18-34-year-old male demo for all of basic cable. Season 2's guest stars include Adam Arkin (playing a white supremacist) and Henry Rollins (as a deadly new threat to the SAMCRO motorcycle club).

Next up, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres its fifth season on Thursday, Sept. 17. FX plans to launch a new original comedy series this fall, to be paired with Philadelphia.

FX has also penciled in an October premiere for the sixth and penultimate season of Nip/Tuck.

Guest-stars on tap for Nip/Tuck's coming cycle include Vanessa Redgrave, Rose McGowan, Mario Lopez, Barry Bostwick and Dancing with the Stars' Gilles Marini. Melanie Griffith (playing Kimber's mother) and Famke Janssen (reprising her role of transsexual Ava Moore) will be among the guests in the as-yet-unscheduled final season.
