Mayans M.C. series renewed for a third season at FX
Ahead of Mayans M.C.’s second season finale tonight, FX has announced that they have officially renewed their Sons of Anarchy spinoff series for a third season which is set to premiere sometime in fall 2020. The renewal also comes in the wake of series creator Kurt Sutter’s dismissal from the network last month. Co-creator and executive producer Elgin James will be continuing as the showrunner for season three.
“We’re happy to continue telling the story of Mayans M.C. with our partners at Fox 21 and excited that Elgin James has earned the opportunity to become the series’ showrunner,” FX Entertainment’s President of Original Programming Nick Grad said in a statement (via Vital Thrills). “Kurt Sutter identified and chose Elgin as his partner on the show from the outset and Elgin has been instrumental to the success of the series, leveraging his experience and creative vision to make Mayans M.C. with this incredible cast, crew and creative team.”
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, 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.
