FX Gives The SONS OF ANARCHY Spinoff Series MAYANS MC a Full Season Order
Kurt Sutter and Elgin James' Sons of Anarchy spinoff series, Mayans MC, has received a full 10-episode order from FX. I was a fan of Sons of Anarchy and I hope this new series is just as good.
The series is set after the events of Sons, "where EZ Reyes, fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Reyes must carve out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy."
I like that basic premise and I'm looking forward to seeing how the story of EZ Reyes plays out. There's no doubt it will bring back that hardcore badass attitude that fans liked about Sons. The cast for the series includes Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.
Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX had this to say in a statement:
“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.”
