Norberto Barba was recently tapped to direct and executive produce the reshot Mayans pilot. Set in the aftermath of Jax Teller’s death at the end of SOA’s seven-season run in 2014, Mayans MC focuses on the struggles of EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border.
Is this a good sign that the pilot, which is undergoing a reshoot and a recasting of some key roles, is heading to a series pickup? “It’s a good sign,” FX CEO John Landgraf said. “I’m really excited where we are in the process on Mayans. “I’m very confident about the future of the spinoff.”
Landgraf also said that he is excited about the show having an almost all-Latino cast. He expects to make a pickup in about three months.
