Jax Teller may have (spoiler alert!) met his maker on the back of a Harley, but that doesn’t mean his Sons of Anarchy portrayer Charlie Hunnam has written off the world of California motorcycle gangs.
Though he won’t be a part of the SOA spin-off announced in December, Hunnam said Tuesday in a Facebook Live with EW that he was excited about the project and would definitely give it a shot. “I really think that, honestly, anything that Kurt [Sutter] is doing I’m excited about, ’cause I think he’s a phenomenal writer and has such a unique voice and vision,” said Hunnam, who was on hand to discuss his latest film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
Sutter created, wrote, produced, and directed the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history. The spin-off, Mayans MC, will be written by Sutter and his producer partner Elgin James, and Sutter will direct the pilot episode. “I obviously got to know very, very well the world of California motorcycle clubs and I just think it’s a very rich, vital, exciting world,” Hunnam said of his seven seasons on Sons of Anarchy. “I think that the idea is that they’re going to focus on Mayans, so it’s exciting. I’ll certainly be tuning in.”

The show will begin production in March, and is set to focus on members of the Mayans motorcycle club, who were recurring players on the original show.
