    Mayans MC Discussion

    Sons Of Anarchy Spin-Off Is Officially Confirmed

    The next chapter in the book of Sons of Anarchy has been announced by FX and we can’t wait for it to roll into town.

    Which is ironic because if any real biker gang the likes of the Sons of Anarchy really did, we’d totally brick it and hide behind our computer screens for dear life.

    A 10-episode series entitled Mayans MC will follow on from Kurt Sutter’s long-running biker drama, and should premiere in the late summer or autumn – the 10th anniversary of the FX flagship show.

    It’s not been an easy ride getting the Sons spin-off on air, the Hollywood Reporter reports. First announced in August 2015, its pilot was originally slated to go out in December 2016.

    News then broke that the pilot was going to be completely reshot with several roles recast. Kurt Sutter stepped back and Norberto Barba was brought in.

    Mayans MC takes place in a post-Jax Teller world and follows EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), a prospect in the Mayan MC charter, fresh out of prison on the Mexico/Cali border.

    EZ, once a golden boy with the American dream in his grasp, needs to start a fresh and carve out a new outlaw identity.

    Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta star alongside Pardo.

    Nick Grad, FX president of original programming, said:

    Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style.

    Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we can’t wait for the world to see.
    So the pilot was re-shot two times, and Kurt Sutter didn't direct the re-shoot. I assume Kurt is still writing everything, just not sure if he's gona direct.

    Anyway, towards the end of Sons I was hate watching the show. Couldn't stand it, but every week I watched just to complete the series haha.

    Anyone looking forward to this?

    Don’t know how you can? SOA became so trite the last few seasons just relying on shock value. And does anyone really care about the Mayans? People wanted an original 8 series not this. Plus it’s been far to long since it ended people don’t have that attention span.

    I would have preferred Chibs going back to Ireland. That would have been cool.

    I'll probably give it a chance.

    I don't hold out a lot of hope for it though.

    I just don't get why they wouldn't even just do the aftermath of Sons. I think more people would even be interested in that. Maybe dismantle that group, build a new one.

    Not really interested in this. Absolutely loved SOA the entire way through, so I'll give it a try. Just don't know if I can get into it though.

    A First 9 or a flash forward to Abel being older and joining the sons would be better.

    Yeah I'd really like to have seen a flash forward with Abel.

    The Mayans? Did they suddently get intresting in the final season? (didn't watch it). Why not do Jax's dad with Clay and the First 9?

    Yeah when I heard their was going to be show I thought the Show would go into the future from the events of SOA. I gotta say I was kinda disappointed when I heard it was going to be a prequel of a Show, but I'll give it a shot no doubt. Before the last two Seasons, I spent a entire Summer get caught up, alot of hours, alot of Soda, and Popcorn so I need to see this. It was thing when this Show came on, for no one to bother me when I watched the Show. I didn't want to miss a damn thing, right now the only Show I watch on FX is Legion which is coming back for Season 2, can't wait see where this goes.

    My thoughts exactly. Hopefully this does well though, I enjoyed Sons quite a bit.
