FX Orders Sons of Anarchy Spin-Off Pilot

FX is moving forward with the potential Sons of Anarchy spin-off. The network has ordered a pilot for Mayans MC, which will focus on the gang's charter on the California-Mexican border.

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter wrote the pilot script with Elgin James, the director of Little Birds and A Million Little Pieces. Sutter will also direct the pilot and executive-produce, with James signed on to co-executive-produce.

Mayans MC will tell the story of EZ Reyes, a Mayan MC prospect who struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.

The project takes place after the events of Sons of Anarchy, and Sutter hasn't ruled out the prospect of characters from the original drama making appearances in Mayans MC. The spin-off also reportedly won't have an impact on the much-rumored Sons prequel Sutter has previously mentioned pursuing.

Mayans MC comes after Sutter pulled the plug on his first post-Sons of Anarchy drama, The Bastard Executioner, due to its low ratings.

This will be must avoid TV for me. Sutter had quite the accomplishment getting Sons to jump the shark so many times, and the Bastard Executioner was a complete waste of time. It seems as though he is incapable of viewing his own ideas with a critical eye. As kevbuffylost108 said, they weren't even interesting to begin with. Get some target range silhouettes on lath frames and run them back and forth in front of a camera, and it's a wrap.

So if people don't watch this will Sutter spit his dummy out again?

The Mayans weren't even interesting characters to begin with mate - LESS IS MORE Kurt

This sounds pretty good. Would also love a First 9 prequel series.

Interesting, would definitely check it out, loved Son's of Anarchy once I could get past the misogyny of the biker gangs.
