The premiere of Kurt Sutter’s new Sons of Anarchy spin-off, Mayans MC, is only a few months away. FX just announced that the Sons of Anarchy spin-off will kick off on September 4. What else can fans expect for Season 1 of Mayans MC?
Mayans MC picks up several years after the events in Sons of Anarchy. The show centers around the story of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, played by J.D. Pardo, a prospect in the motorcycle club who just got out of prison. The series takes place along the border of California and Mexico and explores Ezekiel’s attempts to forge a new identity in his charter. It is not expected to crossover too much on the original series, though we will see a few familiar faces from time to time.
According to Deadline, the cast and crew of Mayans MC will appear for a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. The panel will feature Pardo, Sutter, co-producer Elgin James, and other members of the cast.
Apart from Pardo, the show stars Sarah Bolger, Carla Baratta, Michael Irby, Raoul Max Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo, Danny Pino and Richard Cabral. Sons of Anarchy alum Emilio Rivera will also appear on the show, though it is not clear how many more characters from the original show we’ll see this season.
With the premiere only a few months away, Sutter recently shared some behind the scenes photos of some of the cast members. This includes a shot of Rivera reprising his role as Marcus Alvarez and a photo of several members of the biker gang mid-way through a scene.
The images come after FX released the first teaser trailer for the show. The clip shows a group of bikers riding through the desert with the song “Paint if Black” playing in the background. More promotional material is expected to be released at Comic-Con later this month.
Apart from the photos and trailer, Sutter has been pretty quiet about the plot of Mayans MC. Even still, FX is pretty confident about what Sutter brings to the table. In fact, the network green-lit the series for 10 episodes for its first season.
“Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style,” FX president of programing, Nick Grad, shared in a recent interview.
Season 1 of Mayans MC will premiere on FX on September 4.
