If you’re missing your “Sons of Anarchy,” there’s a chance they may ride again on television, though in spinoff form.
Entertainment Weekly reports that FX and “Sons” creator Kurt Sutter are currently developing a spinoff based not on SAMCRO, but one of their rivals, The Mayans. EW’s James Hibberd writes that if officially greenlit and picked up by FX, the plot will revolve around the Oakland-based Hispanic bike club who, over the course of the seven-season run of “SOA,” were revealed to run heroin factories and involved in prostitution.
All other potential show details are up for speculation. Because Sutter has mentioned the idea of a “SOA” spinoff before, this confirmed Mayans-centric series could very well be that prequel Sutter teased. However, because the showrunner is currently tied-up with his upcoming medieval drama “The Bastard Executioner,” which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 15, this spinoff likely won’t see the light of day – or broadcast – until 2016 or 2017. Sutter did tell The Hollywood Reporter that he and his team are looking to hire a writer to assist in developing the project, so should they find someone sooner rather than later, that might speed up the series’ development process.
