FX has ordered a pilot for the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, two years after the conclusion of the flagship series.

The spinoff, which will center on the Mayan Motorcycle Club, is moving forward. Titled Mayans MC, the show is modeled after Sons of Anarchy but told from a different subculture, says Sons showrunner Kurt Sutter, who is also developing the spinoff.

"It's the same [biker] subculture, but it'd be interesting to see the influences of [Hispanic] culture and how it impacts the subculture we already understand," Sutter said last September. "I would do a contemporary piece, not a prequel, 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 ... My intent is, over the hiatus I'll initiate a script for the pilot and take it from there."

Elgin James, who wrote and directed the 2011 movie Little Birds, is also developing Mayans MC. "I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice," Sutter said, of developing the show with James. "Because I didn't think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions. Elgin is that voice."

It's not yet clear if any of the Mayans who appeared in supporting roles on Sons of Anarchy will return for Mayans MC. The series will center on EZ Reyes, "a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali-Mexi border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves," says The Hollywood Reporter.

Sutter is expected to direct the pilot episode in March, which was co-written by him and James.
