If you’ve been mourning the end of Sons Of Anarchy since 2014, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel
According to Variety, FX has placed a pilot order for “Mayans MC,” a spin off focusing on the Mayans motorcycle club. The pilot will will begin shooting in March, and will be directed by “Sons” creator Kurt Sutter. Sutter co-wrote the script with Elgin James, a budding writer/director whose troubled childhood in Boston found him jumping between punk communities, gangs and juvenile detention.
The show will take place after the events of the Sons of Anarchy finale and focus on the motorcycle club’s rivals, the Mayans. In the original show, the California-based Mayans peddled heroin, and in Mayans MC, one of the members, EZ Reyes, will grapple with his desire for revenge against a drug cartel and his need for the women in his life to respect him.
Sons of Anarchy ended in 2014 after seven seasons.
