“Mayans M.C.” has been renewed for a second season.
FX announced Monday that it has picked up a second season of the hit biker drama created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. The news comes just four episodes into the first season of the “Sons of Anarchy” spinoff.
“‘Mayans M.C.’ is performing fantastically, proving to be a breakout first season,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, in a news release. “The series premiered as the highest rated cable series this year and continues to sustain a committed fan base, reflecting the talent and drive of creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. We couldn’t be more excited to take this ride to a second season.”
“Mayans M.C.” follows Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo) and his life as a member of the Mayans motocycle club — a gang first introduced as the Sons’ rivals on “Sons of Anarchy.” The 10-episode first season premiered Sept. 4.
“The ‘Mayans M.C.’ mythology sprung from the womb of ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ but anyone who has taken the time to watch, knows it has become its own mythical creature,” added Sutter in the news release.
“I’m excited for the fans’ response to the rest of this season and I can't wait to get back in the writers room and get to work on season two,” said James.
