Sons of Anarchy fans got a burst of speed with news that FX had officially ordered Kurt Sutter’s Mayans MC spinoff, but even with “a post Jax Teller world” right there in the synopsis, could the former SAMCRO president make an appearance? Charlie Hunnam is open to the idea, and even has a suggestion how.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Now that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has his hands full with FX’s Bastard Executioner, fans were surprised to learn that the motorcycle outlaw drama might have more life in it after all, as FX charters a Mayan-centric spinoff. Now, Sutter himself confirms that the possible spinoff wouldn’t function as a prequel, and could feature returning Anarchy characters.
Despite lacking any official photography of Jessica Jones, Marvel and Netflix keep right on truckin’ with Luke Cage pre-production.
