The cable network has officially confirmed a spinoff series for Sons of Anarchy, titled Mayans MC.
FX ordered a first season of the new series created by Kurt Sutter and writer-director Elgin James. The first season will include 10 episodes and is set to premiere later this year.
The series is set post Sons of Anarchy’s finale. Being the next chapter of the saga, EZ Reyes is out of prison and is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Once a golden boy, EZ now needs to carve his new outlaw identity.
“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, president of original programming for FX. “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.”
Mayans MC stars Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta and premieres in 2018.
