FX's cult classic Sons Of Anarchy may have ended in 2014 after seven seasons, but fans of the biker drama are still wishing to see more of the motorcycle club. They will be happy to know that Kurt Sutter has already promised some positive news about a spin-off series, but not before the premiere of his latest medieval drama The Bastard Executioner.
Cinema Blend reports that the show creator has begun the groundwork for a future Sons Of Anarchy spin-off series which will narrate the story of the Mayan motorcycle club. The report adds that he has also hinted that some characters of the main series would be a part of the upcoming project.
Sutter has also clarified that the series will not be a prequel, and would be a modern day tale. He would rather do a contemporary piece than a prequel, he told the entertainment website.
"And place it far enough away from Northern California that it wouldn't step on the mythology that's already been told. It doesn't mean that there couldn't be some cool, ironic crossovers with familiar characters as the series progressed. I wouldn't want to set it too close to the world we already know, and step on that. It would be cannibalizing what we worked very hard to create and I wouldn't do anything to undermine."
Earlier, there was a general assumption that the spin-off would narrate the story of Jax's team's rivals Alvarez and his crew. But after Sutter's confirmation, it is safe to speculate that the upcoming show will be a completely different story about a different set of people.
Cinema Blend suspects that the series may have some interesting crossover with the original show and fans can see some popular SOA characters appearing in the still untitled project. Sutter is currently focusing on the FX original series TBX and is eager to pass on the showrunner duties to someone as he wants to continue focusing on The Bastard Executioner which is premiering on FX on 13 September.
