Is Charlie Hunnam thinking about reprising his role as Jax Teller on the new ‘Sons of Anarchy’ spin off? Some fans are hoping that’s the case as the Hollywood actor himself hinted that he would be open to making a guest appearance on the show. Back in December, the FX network announced that they are planning to shoot a pilot for ‘Mayans MC,’ a spin-off show that will continue Anarchy’s saga.
Reports indicate that ‘Mayans MC’ will pick up where ‘Sons of Anarchy’ left off. Now that Jax Teller is no longer around, the show will focus on the Mayans motorcycle club and their drama along the California and Mexico border.
Charlie Hunnam played Jax Teller for seven seasons before it wrapped up back in 2014. He revealed that Jax could easily come back from the dead and that he would do anything to appear on the new show. Would he come back in a dream sequence? Or in flashback form? That’s what fans want to know.
Charlie told Entertainment Weekly, “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. 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. I think that the idea is that they’re going to focus on Mayans, so it’s exciting. I’ll certainly be tuning in.”
Then again, would Charlie even have the time to film scenes for the spin-off show? Probably not. He’s got plenty of projects lined up this year. He’s currently starring in the blockbuster film,’ The Lost City of Z.’ He’s also set to star in Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ and ‘Papillon.’ Clearly, Charlie wants to put his television days behind him and concentrate on becoming a Hollywood A-list star. And so far it looks like his plan is working.
But it’s without a doubt that Charlie’s fans would absolutely love to see Jax Teller again. After all, everyone remembers all of Charlie’s steamy and shirtless scenes on the show.
