While Mayans MC takes place four years after Jax’s death and will be a standalone series, it will touch on the series finale of SOA.
“We’re going to play the reality of that last day and the events that happened with who he killed that day and the impact and perhaps the trickle down that may have had on Northern Cali,” Sutter said.
“So it won’t have a direct impact on the Mayans but we make reference to it in the pilot so we can play the reality of it.”
Although there is no set date yet for the release of the third chapter prequel, it will take place before Jax was born.

“I think at some point we’ll find a way to shine a little light on perhaps on John Teller’s manuscript, if the Mayans, if we’re lucky enough to continue and then what I would do is not directly but I would use that as a potential launching point to do the prequel,” Sutter said.
“The First 9 — it would begin in Vietnam with John Teller and Piney Winston and it would be about them coming back to America and ideally to do each episode have a new member join but end it at the end of that so that maybe at that point Gemma’s there but it’s before Jax is born.
“I don’t want to step on the mythology that we know but we kind of lay track to the beginning and then stop,” he said.

As far as the fourth chapter, which will be the sequel to SOA, Sutter said there’s the possibility of keeping it in the family tree and focusing on Jax’s sons Abel and Thomas.
“Perhaps thinking ahead at some point, if any of us are still alive, there might be a series of events that takes us down the line into the future that perhaps sets up some kind of dynamic for Jax’s sons to become aware of who [their] dad was and things like that,” Sutter said.
“That for me is the dream quartet if you will.”
