Show creator Kurt Sutter, ever since “Sons of Anarchy” ended, has kept busy, what with a new FX show, “The Bastard Executioner”, which will premiere on Sept. 15, 2015, on his hands. However, fans and viewers need not lose hope with regards to the “Sons of Anarchy” spin off and supposed prequel, as Kurt Sutter, in a recent interview, talked not only about his upcoming show, but about his plans with regards to the future of the “Sons of Anarchy” franchise. Read on to learn more about Kurt Sutter’s plans for the recently announced “Sons of Anarchy” spin off, and to learn more about his plans for a prequel for the series.

Ever since the FX motorcycle drama “Sons of Anarchy” ended late last year, fans have been all ears with regards to any of Sutter’s plans for the future of the series, whether it be a spin-off or a prequel. Fans and viewers, for a time, began to lose hope, as Sutter is currently busy with a new FX drama, “The Bastard Executioner”, but remained hopeful, which paid off when Sutter announced that there will be a  spin-off, which will focus more on the Mayan Motorcycle Club, who were also featured in “Sons of Anarchy.”


Recently, in an interview with Deadline to promote his upcoming show, “The Bastard Executioner”, which will begin airing on FX on Sept. 15, 2015, Sutter talked a little bit more about the spin-off, and talked about his plans to create a “Sons of Anarchy” prequel afterwards.

So far, what is known about the Mayan Motorcycle Club is that they are a Mexican-American motorcycle club led by Macos Alvarez (Emilio Rivera), that operate in Oakland, in California.

During the course of the series, the Mayans were one of the main antagonists of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club (SAMCRO), and later conducted business with them.

According to Sutter, the spin-off will be set in the present day, and will be set somewhere far enough in Northern California so as to avoid getting tangled with the mythology that had already been established in “Sons of Anarchy.” However, he stated, that since the “Sons of Anarchy” and the spin-off are in the same universe, that they would have some opportunities for “Sons of Anarchy” characters to crossover and guest star in particular episodes.

However, Sutter warned that the entire flavor of the spin-off will be very different as the Hispanic and Latino culture will be very much incorporated into the show. He is very interested in seeing how their culture affects the subculture of motorcycle gangs and bikers.


Sutter then went on to say that he hopes to create a pilot script for it, which will act as a sort of spring board for the show’s writers.

He also mentioned that he still does want to create a prequel for “Sons of Anarchy,” but instead of a full-on series, he hopes to make a limited series focusing on John Teller and his SAMCRO co-founder, Piermont “Piney” Winston, who became friends during the Vietnam War and upon returning home founded SAMCRO together.
