Just yesterday we heard Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter detailing production of FX’s upcoming spinoff pilot Mayans MC, and now we’re getting a first look. See the next MC clubhouse in a new photo of an upcoming scene from the Sons of Anarchy offshoot.
Whether or not FX was ripe to reenter the world of Sons of Anarchy with Mayans MC, more pressing was if Kurt Sutter was the man to take us there. Now, the former Sons showrunner speaks out on placing a Latino lens over the FX biker drama in a new BTS video.
Sons of Anarchy’s Mayans MC spinoff has found its very own Jax Teller. Revolution alum JD Pardo will mount the bike as our central lead for the new Elgin James series, amid a few new additions to the cast.
It wasn’t long after Jax Teller left the Sons of Anarchy behind that FX started gearing up for a potential spinoff, and it seems the Mayans are finally getting their day. Kurt Sutter’s Mayans MC series has an official pilot order at the network, along with a synopsis set in a “post Jax Teller world.”
FX’s Sons of Anarchy has retired to the garage long enough that creator Kurt Sutter has been mostly working in private, though we may soon have something to show. The proposed Mayans MC spinoff is gearing toward production, and may return one of the original series’ Mayan stars.
Just a few short weeks ago, Sons of Anarchy boss Kurt Sutter gave a vague update that the FX biker drama spinoff had moved forward, something the network now formalizes. Not only does the tentatively-titled Mayans MC spinoff has a script order, but a co-creator and showrunner in Little Birds alum Elgin James.
We haven’t heard very much from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter after the public cancellation of FX followup The Bastard Executioner, and less so on the proposed biker spinoff, at least until now. A new update from Sutter indicates the Mayan-focused Sons of Anarchy spinoff is moving forward, potentially even scouting locations as well.
The moment word broke of a potential Sons of Anarchy spinoff focused on the Mayan MC gang, franchise creator Kurt Sutter‘s involvement seemed understandably focused on his new FX drama, The Bastard Executioner. We all know how that turned out as well, but could Sutter return to Sons of Anarchy to leads its spinoff?
Any surprise that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter would dive right back into FX for medieval drama The Bastard Executioner was compounded by the series’ lackluster performance, quietly airing its season finale only last night. That “season” has notably, and publicly become “series,” as Sutter himself opted to announce its cancellation via a Hollywood Reporter ad.
FX's 'The Bastard Executioner' brings plenty of Kurt Sutter's same 'Sons of Anarchy' style to the middle ages, but does the sword-swinging followup cut twice as deep? Our early spoiler-free review, before 'The Bastard Executioner' makes his first kill in tonight's two-hour premiere.
