Mayans MC is the next chapter in the Sons of Anarchy saga, Kurt Sutter’s award-winning series that was the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history for seven seasons. The Mayans were recurring and pivotal players in Sons of Anarchy throughout the show’s seven-year run.

The spinoff series is 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. 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.

Mayans MC stars Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.

Noberto Barba directed the pilot and will be an Executive Producer, with Sutter serving as Executive Producer and Elgin James serving as Co-Executive Producer. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

Mayans MC has a 10-episode order for its first season. Episodes air on FX every Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET.
