It’s been nearly 3 1/2 years since Jax Teller’s final story was told on Sons of Anarchy, the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history. Now we’re getting the first look at its long-in-the-works spinoff series.
The cable net today unleashed the first teaser for Mayans MC, which follows the biker club whose members recurred as pivotal players throughout the Sons saga’s seven-season run. “Teaser” is the operative word here, as there’s no dialogue or hints at plot or such — just 25 seconds of road, roses and a franchise-appropriate Spanish-language cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It, Black.”
Co-created by Sons father Kurt Sutter and Elgin James and hailing from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions, Mayans MC is set in a post-Jax world where EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayans MC charter on the California-Mexico 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. Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta also star, with recurring players including Tony Plana and Gino Vento.
The series is set for a world premiere sneak peek June 8 at the ATX Television Festival in Austin before its FX premiere in the fall.
