After years of hinting that SONS OF ANARCHY might get a spin-off, Entertainment Weekly has learned that series creator Kurt Sutter is now developing a new show centered around the Northern California motorcycle club scene. Details are lacking other than the show’s storyline: The project will focus on the Mayans – the Oakland-based Hispanic gang led by Marcus Alvarez, who had a precarious relationship with SAMCRO during their seven seasons.
Sutter had teased the idea of doing a Sons prequel as recently as last month at San Diego Comic Con, possibly as a mini-series. FX has not officially confirmed whether or not the series will be a prequel or not. Sutter will executive produce the as-yet-untitled series, and is currently seeking a showrunner to handle the Mayans’ day-to-day management. For now however, he will remain focused on his upcoming medieval drama, THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER, which premieres Sept. 15 and stars Stephen Moyer, Katey Sagal, Lee Jones, and Ed Sheeran.
