A 'Sons Of Anarchy' Spin-Off Is Happening And The First Image Has Been Released
A Sons of Anarchy spin-off is on its way and FX has released the first teaser image.
Mayans MC follows on from where the hit show left off in 2014, and the channel has ordered a 10-episode first season.
Set four years after the death of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), and following Ezekiel 'EZ' Reyes (JD Pardo) - a prospect in rival bike gang the Mayans - the new show will air later this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
A spin-off has actually been in the works for a while, initially announced in August 2015.
It was due to focus on recurring characters from Sons of Anarchy, but by July 2016, it was decided that the pilot was going to be completely redone, with a number of roles recast. Norberto Barba was also brought in as an executive producer along side Kurt Stutter.
Obviously, fans are already pretty excited:

Speaking about the new show, FX president of original programming Nick Grad, said: "Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style.
"Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we can't wait for the world to see."
