The spin-off is coming, but even more sons of anarchy are being planned.
After the recent first look at Mayans MC, Sons of Anarchy fans are looking forward to what the new show has in store, but this spin-off could just be the start of a new wave of SOA TV shows.
During an interview with Tom Arnold, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter revealed that he envisions the show as “four episodes” with all seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy as the first. mayans mc represents chapter two and if that show is a hit we could see the jax family story continue with a prequel and sequel seasons.
“I have a feeling that ‘children’ is four chapters. if ‘children’ was the first chapter, then I see the Mayans as the second chapter. It’s the present, it’s after Jax Teller’s death,” Sutter said, speaking about the new show.
sutter also revealed that mayans mc would be dealing with the latest events in sons of anarchy, including the actions of jax teller, who left a large death toll before he came out in the finale.
“we’re going to replay the reality of that last day and the events that happened with who killed that day and the impact and maybe the trickle down that it may have had in northern california. so it won’t have a direct impact on the Mayans, but we do reference it in the pilot so we play reality,” said sutter.
Speaking of Jax, Sutter also said that a possible third chapter would be the prequel that was mentioned earlier in the show.
We’ve often been told that after Jax Teller’s father returned home from Vietnam, he was one of the founding members of the motorcycle club.
sutter says the prequel would explore the narrator’s journey back from vietnam and the creation of sons of anarchy.
“i think at some point we’ll find a way to shed a little bit of light on maybe the john teller manuscript, if the mayans, if we’re lucky enough to continue and then what i would do would not be directly but use that as a point potential starting point to make the prequel. the first 9 it would start in vietnam with john teller and piney winston and it would be about them coming back to america and ideally each episode would have a new member but it would end at the end of that so maybe at that point gemma is there but it is before jax is born. I don’t want to step on the mythology that we know, but we kind of trace the path to the beginning and then we stop,” he said.
jax’s story is not finished yet because there is also talk of a direct sequel to soa, provided there is enough demand.
sutter says a sequel would revolve around jax teller’s sons, abel and thomas, after they find out who their father was and what he did during his life.
“maybe thinking about the future at some point, if any of us are still alive, there could be a series of events that take us into the future that maybe set up some kind of dynamic for the children of jax to find account of who his dad was and stuff like that. that’s the dream quartet for me, so to speak,” sutter said.
