Sons of Anarchy: The Final Season

Story by Jack Foley

A SPIN-off series to Sons of Anarchy is officially in the works at FX.

The cable network confirmed this week that 10 episodes of Mayans MC have been commissioned.

Kurt Sutter’s follow-up to FX’s long-running biker drama will premiere in 2018, either in late Autumn or the summer pegged to the 10th anniversary of the flagship series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mayans MC will be set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border.

The show will subsequently follow EZ as he carves out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy who had the American Dream within his grasp.

The ensemble cast also includes Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.

Announcing the spin-off, Nick Grad, FX president of original programming, said: “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.”
