FX show gets spinoff: Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff

FX show gets spinoff: Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff, Just when you thought you were done with the motorcycle gangs of California, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is bringing them back for another trip with an all-new spin-off series.
The seventh and final season of Sons of Anarchy proved to be a ratings bonanza for FX with a whopping 9.26 million total viewers tuning in for Jax Teller’s final ride. So no one was surprised when FX immediately offered Sutter another show: The Bastard Executioner. But while that medieval tale of swords and witchcraft will premiere on September 15, FX is doubling down on Sutter and asking that, alongside the leather jerkins of Bastard, he bring back the leather jackets as well.
But how can we have a Sons of Anarchy spin-off with (spoiler alert!) Jax Teller and many of the rest of the gang dead and gone? Sutter told The Hollywood Reporter that this new season would focus on the Mayans-the Latino motorcycle club that was the sometime ally, sometime enemy of Teller and SAMCRO. Though Sutter is keeping mum on the time period of the show, there is potential for Jimmy Smits’s character, Nero Padilla, to play a role. Padilla founded another Latino gang, the Byz Lats, and was a wary ally of the Mayans in Season 6 of Sons of Anarchy. But truth be told, as great as Nero was, he’s probably best left riding off into the sunset with Wendy and the Teller boys.
A more likely crossover star would be Emilio Rivera who played Mayan leader Marcus Alvarez for seven seasons. But if this is a prequel to the events of Sons of Anarchy, all bets are off. We could get younger versions of any of the characters we’ve come to know, love, and lose on the original series. And if it’s set in the future, then we could get a whole new generation of Tellers involved in the mayhem, including Abel and Thomas. Maybe then Kurt Sutter can finally make his dream of working with Aaron Paul come true.
But, more likely, and refreshingly, a new Mayan-centric chapter of Sons of Anarchy will allow an opportunity for many non-white actors to take front and center in a heavily promoted cable drama. This new Sutter project is only the most recent in a TV trend of spinning off prestige cable darlings like Mad Men and The Walking Dead. With the promise of Game of Thrones prequels vaguely on the horizon, it could be that the next decade of cable drama looks an awful lot like this one.
