Mayans M.C. News
FX’s Son of Anarchy spinoff, Mayans M.C., just received a solid stretch of road on which to ride, since the network has officially given the project a 10-episode debut season order. With that move, the network also unveiled the first official image of the cast (pictured above).
With FX’s Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Production, Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, making the announcement, the network conveyed sentiments on the auspicious prospects of continuing the continuity established by the 7-year run of SoA, with original visionary Kurt Sutter onboard, along with Low Riders director Elgin James. According to Grad:
“Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans M.C. 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 M.C. 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.”
Mayans M.C. Cast
Edward James Olmos will be a series regular (Battlestar Gallactica), playing Felipe Reyes, “the once-strong Mexican patriarch, crushed by bullets and hard labor, who struggles to keep his past buried and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path.”
Joining Olmos in the Mayans M.C. cast are:
JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta.
Mayans M.C. Plot Details
According to a release, the show is “set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.”
High-profile spinoffs have come a long way from when NBC’s beloved sitcom Friends gave way to the critically panned Joey. AMC set its programming slate for the long haul in 2014, successfully turning Breaking Bad into Better Call Saul and using The Walking Dead as a jumping off point for Fear the Walking Dead. Whether it’s a prequel using existing characters, or a new story in the same universe, “spinoff” doesn’t carry the same negative connotation it once did.
Seeing success elsewhere, it’s easy to see why FX is entertaining the idea of building off one of its most celebrated shows. The network is working on a Sons of Anarchy spinoff, network CEO John Landgraf confirmed at TCAs.
Sons of Anarchy creator/writer/star Kurt Sutter, who was the mind behind the short-lived The Bastard Executioner, which was cancelled by FX in the fall, is not currently involved with the spinoff beyond being named an executive producer. Sutter will look for a showrunner to handle the project on a day-to-day basis.
The spinoff would follow the Mayans motorcycle crew and would be set in the Northern California motorcycle club scene.
Sons of Anarchy ended after seven seasons December 2014. The seventh season was the highest-rated in FX history, averaging 7.55 million viewers.
