FX has renewed the Sons of Anarchy spinoff series Mayans M.C. for a third season, with co-creator and executive producer Elgin James serving as showrunner.
Mayans M.C. is set in a post-Jax Teller world that sees Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo) become a prospect in the Mayans M.C. charter on the California/Mexico border. As he searches for the truth behind his mother’s death, he tries to reconcile with his brother Angel (Clayton Cardenas) while their father Felipe (Edward James Olmos) struggles to lead his sons down a righteous path.
Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Danny Pino and Emilio Rivera also star in Mayans M.C., produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment, said: “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. 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.”
Fox 21 Television Studios President Bert Salke added: “Keeping this vibrant series strong is a huge priority to everyone at Fox 21 Television Studios, FX Productions and of course FX, which has been a spectacular home and platform for both Mayans M.C. and Sons before it.”
