Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy was a show with no equal, and there is still nothing that has aired on television like it. When the show went off the air a while back it left an entire cool universe with endless possibilities. Now they are going to revisit one of the groups in that universe with a new spinoff titled Mayans MC!
A pilot has been ordered by FX, and there is little doubt that the series will get a full order once they see the finished product. There are millions of fans worldwide that are still looking to satisfy that Sons of Anarchy itch, and this will be the only show that can provide it. Viewers got to see seven seasons of a show that only touched the tip of the iceberg when it came to a lot of the characters that made an appearance. The Mayans appeared here and there on the show and were a great part of the storyline even if they weren’t the main characters.
There are some timeline issues to iron out, which is why Sutter is bringing aboard Elgin James. Mayans MC will take place after the events of Jax Teller’s world, and will have a strong Latino influence. EZ Reyes is out for vengeance against the cartel, but has to tip toe the line carefully since he is only a prospect in the Mayan MC charter. With ambition on his side, Reyes will fight for respect, love and power.
Viewers are excited but also wary of how they will do the show without having some guest appearance from the Sons, which is inevitable. This will be the hardest part of the show for Sutter to figure out, but he can do it!
What do you think of the new spinoff? Will they be able to turn this into a big hit?
