Kurt Sutter’s long-rumoured Sons of Anarchy spinoff is moving forward into development, with Variety reporting that FX Networks has ordered a pilot script for Mayans Mc, which Sutter has created with Elgin Hames (Little Birds).
“I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice,” said Sutter on working with James. “I didn’t think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions. Elgin is that voice.”
Mayans Mc is described as “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.”

After seven gripping seasons on the small-screen, viewers bid farewell to the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club two years ago, as FX closed the book on its rip-roaring family drama with aplomb.
In those intervening years, mooted reports of a sequel or some form of spinoff began to gain serious traction, with fans chomping at the bit to learn any potential details regarding setting, characters and perhaps most important of all, which biker gang would anchor said continuation.
Answering most of those questions today, FX has officially nailed down plans for Mayans Mc, a Soa offshoot billed as 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.”

The latest episode of Game of Thrones, entitled "Oathbreaker", is the first episode of season 6 that fails under the weight of mammoth exposition. That's pretty disappointing, especially after the long awaited resurrection of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) last week. His oddly boring return isn't the only one. Osha (Natalia Tena) and Rickon Stark (Art Parkinson) are brought back into the fray under the most unfortunate circumstances. They are captured and served up as tribute to the sadistic Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon). You'd think that would be a riveting scene, but is played like a mundane afterthought. I understand that groundwork is being laid for epic confrontations, but there was some sorely needed sizzle missing here.
The episode begins with Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) helping Jon Snow to his feet. Jon is bewildered by his return to life. Melisandre (Carice van Houten) asks what he saw in the afterlife - nothing. »

Follow along or flee in fear. Here there be spoilers! Catch up on Episode Two, 'Home,' over here. ******************** [8:55 Pm Edt] - I should've gotten hazard pay for even having to watch the last five minutes of The Fantastic Four. [9:02 Pm Edt] - No one cares about anything but the Tower of Joy. Move it along, "Previously On." Wait. We're getting more Sam? Are we going to Oldtown too!?!? [9:06Pm Edt] - Jon Snow is confused, naked, full of bloody holes, and cold. That'd be enough to cause anyone to panic, without the "back from the dead" part. No no. No one cares if you remember that Olly is an asshole. »
