Mayans MC Latest News, Photos, and Videos

Here's the Official Reason 'Sons of Anarchy' Was Removed from Netflix

Charlie Hunnam‘s FX show Sons of Anarchy was removed from Netflix’s streaming service this weekend, and fans were very upset over this latest development.

Now, the creator of the show, Kurt Sutter, is explaining why the hit drama was removed and why his new show, Mayans M.C., will also never hit Netflix.

“The simple explanation why SOA is no longer on Netflix and neither will MAYANS… The Disney/Fox deal was about creating a competing streaming platform. That is the future of TV. Although it’ll take a minute to launch, F/D’s content is their biggest asset in that marketplace,” Kurt tweeted to his followers questioning the decision to remove the show. “You can still watch FX shows on FXNow, Hulu and Amazon. At least, for now… I know that doesn’t help if you only have Netflix, but in this ever-changing digital landscape, we are doing our fucking best to get content on as many streaming sources as possible. Sorry it’s wack.”

If you don’t know, Disney recently bought Fox. Disney is set to launch its own streaming service, Disney+, and though the launch date hasn’t been set, it’s rumored to be sometime in 2019.

'Mayans MC' Star JD Pardo Reveals How He Got His Role

JD Pardo and Sarah Bolger hit the red carpet at the panel for Mayans MC during the final day of 2018 Comic-Con on Sunday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

Some of the other cast members at the panel included Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Danny Pino, Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Vincent Vargas, and Joseph Lucero.

JD and series creator Kurt Sutter opened up during the panel about how he was cast in the lead role.

“I saw his read with a couple other actors and sort of knew what I was looking for,” Kurt said (via Variety). “It was one of those things where I knew what I wasn’t looking for and then I saw JD read and there was something interesting and commanding in what he was doing.“

“We had this honest conversation where he told me what he wanted the character to be,” JD added. “I told [Kurt], ‘If you give me this opportunity I will not let you down, I will not let FX down, I will not let the fans down.’”

Mayans MC is a spin-off of the beloved series Sons of Anarchy.

FYI: JD is wearing Aquatalia shoes.
