SDCC 2018: Kurt Sutter Promises Plenty of ‘Sons’ Easter Eggs in ‘Mayans MC’

FX/YouTube

A new chapter of Sons of Anarchy is upon us. Today, the cast and creators of the upcoming spinoff Mayans MC took the stage to talk about the new series, its predecessor and even shared the first 13 minutes of the pilot with the lucky fans in Hall H, and it sounds like it’s going to be perfectly on brand for expectations!

Fans were definitely into the exclusive footage they were shown, calling it “captivating” and recognizing that while the show feels familiar, it has a whole new vibe than Sons. 

Mayans MC will follow EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), a former golden boy with the American Dream just within his reach who is now fresh out of prison and prospecting for Mayans Motorcycle Club. FX released a full trailer earlier this week ahead of the SDCC panel. Check that out below or for a full breakdown head here.

During the panel, series star JD Pardo spoke about the reverence he had when deciding to take on a role in such a beloved TV universe.

He also called out Charlie Hunnam for dropping his bike on the first day of filming for Sons. 

The series allowed the opportunity for co-creator Elgin James to put a more personal touch on the narrative.

Sarah Bolger spoke about working with Pardo and how there will be a lot to unpack about her character’s history with the MC.

Kurt Sutter revealed that while no crossovers are planned with the Sons of Anarchy cast at the moment, that there will be plenty of Easter Eggs for long-time fans to uncover.

But he did confirm that the Mayans MC still has a relationship with the Sons MC.

In addition to Pardo, the series also stars Emilio Rivera, Clayton Cardena, Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, and Danny Pino.

Mayans MC will premiere on FX September 4th at 10/9c.
