Sons of Anarchy will feel complete once again when the spin-off is released later this year on FX.
The creator of the show, Kurt Sutter, confirmed the upcoming Mayans MC isn’t all that’s coming down the pipes in the world of SOA.
Mayans MC will run for 10-episodes and is set, coincidently, four years after SOA ends.
It will follow Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, played by JD Pardo, after he is released from prison. EZ is a prospect in a charter of the Mayans Motorcycle Club on the California-Mexico border.
Mayans MC is just the second chapter in the motorcycle-saturated mind of Sutter. In an interview on the Tom Arnold podcast 100% Honest, Sutter said:
“I have a sense of ‘Sons’ being four chapters. If ‘Sons’ was the first chapter than I see the Mayans as the second chapter. [The new show is] present day, it’s after the death of Jax Teller.”
Sutter said he envisions four chapters total – but “the new show” or “third chapter” will be a prequel. Sorry, ladies, that means that Charlie Hunnam won’t be in Mayans MC or “the third chapter.”
