Big news for Sons of Anarchy fans! FX announced that the Sons spinoff series Mayans MC has received a full series order. The announcement was made during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Friday.
The series will be comprised of 10 episodes and is set to launch sometime in 2018! According to the Hollywood Reporter FX president of original programming Nick Grad told press:
“Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style. 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 is set to take place after the events which occurred in the Sons of Anarchy finale and will follow the rival motorcycle club. The series will follow Mayans prospect EZ Reyes through his struggles and desire for revenge against the drug cartel while attempting to earn the respect from the women he loves. The series will be directed by Norberto Barba (Grimm, The Strain, Preacher) who is also acting as executive producer.
The network also released the very first image from the upcoming series. Meet your new favorite MC crew below!
Concerns regarding the series mounted last year when extensive reshoots and recasting took place, however, Sutter assured fans that this was all for the best. He previously tweeted, “This was the process for SOA. Shows Fox/FX’s commitment to series. Allows me and Elgin to improve cast, script, and direction! #MayansMC.” Now, it seems the series has finally come to fruition and we can’t wait to see it!
