So Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has just had the pin pulled by FX on his newest show The Bastard Executioner, which failed to demonstrate quite the same pull as the show about the anti-hero group of bikers that captured the hearts of viewers everywhere.
But it's not all bad, next up is the as of yet untitled "Mayans project" - the Sons of Anarchy spin-off show featuring sometime-rival sometime-friendly motorcycle gang The Mayans. We still don't know very much about it though, and it sounds like Sutter himself is still in the very early stages of getting the Mayans show up and off the ground as he told TVLine:
"[FX] is very hot on the Mayans project. I won’t run that show. For me, this is about finding the right writer and the next thing I will be doing is sitting down and interviewing to find a Latino writer, someone who understands the world and the culture [of the Mayans]."
Fair enough Sutter, fair enough. Regardless it looks like it's still gonna be quite a while until we get any concrete news about that, never-mind when we can expect any release dates to start creeping out of the woodwork for the Mayans project.
It's a good thing we have Fallout 4 to keep up occupied in the meantime yeah?
The Sons of Anarchy Easter Egg in Fallout 4
Anyone who's played any of the games in the Fallout series will know by now that Bethesda just love incorporating Easter Eggs into their games, usually fairly implicit references towards films, TV shows and other games from our reality.
From Fallout: New Vegas's Indiana Jones "Nuking the Fridge" reference...
Fallout 4 has proven no exception, with more and more little references being discovered by players every day (my personal favorite so far has been the Good Will Hunting one).
But did you know there's a Sons of Anarchy reference in Fallout 4?
Whilst completing quests for Brotherhood Scribe Haylen (who you find at the Cambridge Police Station) you're sent to the BADTFL Regional Office along the south coast of the river. Once inside you find a number of computer terminals, one of which contains a list of people jailed in September of 2077.
On the list you find [Prisoner 4CA8712], named Opie Hurst. His name is an amalgamation of the much loved Sons of Anarchy character Harry "Opie" Winston and the actor who portrayed him - Ryan Hurst.
Opie Hurst is listed as 6'4" tall weighting 235 lbs, with brown hair and eyes, a beard and arm/back tattoos. His possessions consist of a leather vest, a wool knit cap and a set of motorcycle keys, all corresponding with how Opie appeared in the series. He was charged with "Possession of an unlicensed laser".
Oh Opie, if only you lived long enough to see 2077...
Of course, this isn't the first time the two pieces of media have been linked. Ron Perlman, who portrayed Clarence "Clay" Morrow in Sons of Anarchy, has been a long standing voice actor attached to the series as Narrator.
He's featured in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: New Vegas and the Fallout 4 trailer, and it's his distinctively growly voice that tells us the most iconic line from the series "War. War never changes." Now if only someone had told Clay about that, maybe things wouldn't have ended so badly for him...
