Batten down the hatches lads, we’ve got a first look at the Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC.
In a trailer for the hotly anticipated show, fans have gotten their first feel for what FX has lined up.
Mayans MC will be set four years after Sons of Anarchy. It follows the narrative of Ezekiel ‘EZ’ Reyes, played by JD Pardo, after being released from prison and jumping up the ranks in a rival bike gang.
The official synopsis as per FX:
Set in the aftermath of Jax Teller’s death at the end of SOA’s seven-season run in 2014, Mayans MC will focus on the struggles of EZ, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border.
EZ is the gifted son of a proud Latino family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his need for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape.
Fancy a look at what’s to come?
