'Sons of Anarchy' Spinoff 'Mayans MC' Officially Coming to FX
By Philiana Ng
FX is keeping the Sons of Anarchy world alive with a new spinoff series.
The cable network has officially ordered a first season of Mayans MC from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and writer-director Elgin James. The 10-episode season is set to premiere in late summer or early fall.
Set in a post-Jax Teller world, Mayans MC kicks off after the events of the Sons of Anarchy series finale. Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (J.D. Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California-Mexico border. Now, EZ must carve out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy who had the American Dream within his grasp.
Joining Pardo on the spinoff is Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.
“Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style,” said Nick Grad, co-president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “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.”
