Mayans MC: Which Sons of Anarchy Characters Could Appear?

at . Comments

Mayans MC is coming to FX this fall, and the Sons of Anarchy offshoot could be bringing over some characters from the parent series. 

Those characters are none other than Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) children, Abel and Thomas. 

“I do think it would be interesting to see Jax’s sons faced with the reality of who their father was,” Kurt Sutter, EP of both Sons and Mayans, told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour.

“Jax basically said [to ex-wife] Wendy, ‘Do not paint my existence and my life in any glamorous way. Tell my sons that I’m a scum, and I’m a murderer, and they should have nothing to do with me.’ Because he didn’t want them to face the same obstacles, the same draw to lineage that he had."

"To me, there’s potentially something interesting to see how that may manifest. But that would be down the line.”

The 10-episodes first season is scheduled to premiere September 4th and will be “set in a post-Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border.

It picks up four years after the events of Sons of Anarchy, but it remains to be seen whether the kids will show up early into the show's run or much further down the line. 

Mayans MC stars J. D. Pardo Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.

It has had a long and winding road to the TV screen. FX was allegedly unimpressed with the original pilot, and it meant that there were multiple roles recast, and a new pilot produced.

Sutter, who served as a director on the pilot, passed over those duties to Norberto Barba. 

Sons of Anarchy was a huge hit for FX from 2008-14 and emerged as one of the most popular dramas on cable. It makes sense then that FX would want to extend the brand. 

What are your thoughts on the potential of these characters appearing?

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

Jax

We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
