FX has officially ordered Sons of Anarchy spinoff MAYANS MC to series, the cable network announced Friday.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
The 10-episode first season will premiere on the network in 2018.
Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta star in the series, which is set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes (Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi 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.
Noberto Barba directed the pilot and will serve as an executive producer along with Sutter. James will serve as a co-EP.
