Mayans MC: Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff Begins Script Development

TV News - Mayans MC - Sons of Anarchy spinoff begins Script DevelopmentDeadline and Variety have reported that the long rumoured Sons of Anarchy spinoff, Mayans MC, has officially begun script development at FX.


The spinoff will be co-created by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy creator) and Elgin James, with James writing the pilot. Mayans MC is described to be a dark, visceral family drama that takes a new look at the most American of icons, the 1% outlaw, this time reflected through a Latino lens.


Speaking about working with Elgin James for Mayans MC, Kurt Sutter said:

I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice. Because I didn’t think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions. Elgin is that voice.


The Mayans were pivotal recurring characters on the Sons of Anarchy series during its seven season run and the idea of a spinoff focusing on them has been discussed for a long while now. Will definitely be interested to see how the spinoff will work and if Emilio Rivera in particular will be returning.
