Kurt Sutter has slowly been releasing more and more details about his upcoming spin-off, Mayans MC. In the latest development, the Sons of Anarchy creator launched an official website for Mayans MC, which revealed more about the plot and announced a new actor to the biker drama.
Mayans MC is expected to launch sometime this fall on FX. The story will revolve around a Mayans prospect named EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), who was just released from prison and is looking to establish himself in the club.
The series will take place along the Cali/Mexico border after the events in Sons of Anarchy, including Jax Teller’s (Charlie Hunnam) death. The story picks up with EZ trying to create a new identity for himself in a town where everyone views him as the golden boy.
Apart from Pardo, Mayans MC stars Edward James Olmos, Clayton Cardenas, Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, Richard Cabral, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Trujillo and Carla Baratta. According to Joe, Sutter just revealed that Gino Vento, known for his roles in Bloodline and The Deuce, will also play a recurring role on the show. Vento is set to play the part of Nester, a friend of cartel boss Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino) and the head of the family’s security team.
Tony Plana has also joined the series and will play the role of Devante, an associate with the Galindo Cartel. Plana is best known for his part as Ignacio Suarez on the show Ugly Betty. He has also starred on Madam Secretary, Jane the Virgin, Star Up, The Punisher, Lethal Weapon, Colony, The Young Pope and The Blacklist.
Given how Mayans MC is a spin-off, we can also expect to see a few Sons of Anarchy alums on the show. The only confirmed SOA alum so far is Emilio Rivera, who will reprise his role as Mayans president Marcus Alvarez.
FX has not released an official premiere date for Season 1 of Mayans MC. We do know that the series will feature 10 episodes and should air in the fall of 2018. In addition to the new spin-off, Sutter has plans for two more series related to Sons of Anarchy and Jax Teller.
The first is a prequel that focuses on the original founding members of SAMCRO while the second would take place well after Mayans MC and follow both of Jax’s sons as they come to terms with their father’s legacy.
