It’s been years in the making but we finally got our first promo trailer for Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy spin-off, Mayans MC. Well, sort of. The trailer does not feature any dialogue or plot hints, but it did reveal that Mayans MC will premiere on FX this fall.
Sons of Anarchy concluded Jax Teller’s (Charlie Hunnam) epic story over three years ago. Sutter took a brief break from his biker universe but has been working diligently on the spin-off for the better part of a year. Few details have emerged about Mayans MC, and the latest promo trailer did not shed any more light on the storyline.
The short video simply features members of the Mayans MC riding across a road lined with red roses. The Rolling Stones song, “Paint It, Black,” plays in the background as all of the flowers turn black. The trailer hints that Mayans MC will be similar in tone as Sons of Anarchy, complete with all the violence and drama.
Although the trailer didn’t reveal any new information, we do know a few things about the plot. According to Deadline, Mayans MC takes place after the events in Sons of Anarchy, namely Jax’s death. The series focuses on a Mayans MC charter on the Cali-Mexico border and follows a prospect named EZ Reyes (JD Pardo).
EZ was just released from prison and is trying to forge a new outlaw identity within his community. The spin-off also stars Sarah Bolger, Edward James Olmos, Richard Cabral, Clayton Cardenas, Raoul Trujillo, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta and Antonio Jaramillo.
We do not know how many former Sons of Anarchy stars will have cameos on the show, but Sutter has hinted that some crossover is a possibility. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Hunnam will be involved in the spin-off, especially considering how his character died in the Season 7 finale.
The only confirmed Sons of Anarchy alum is Emilio Rivera, who will reprise his role as Mayans MC President Marcus Alvarez, but there are plenty of other characters who lived and could pop up from time to time. Recurring actors include Gino Vento and Tony Plana.
Mayans MC is expected to premiere on FX sometime this fall, though an exact date has not been revealed. Sutter has been heavily involved in the creation of the spin-off – along with co-producer Elgin James – and is also planning on releasing more Sons of Anarchy spin-offs in the future.
