FX on Friday announced a series order for "Mayans MC", a "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff that follows a different motorcycle club that frequently interacted with SAMCRO on the original series.

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf pointed out that the series as an nearly entirely Latino cast, which includes Edward James Olmos, JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo and Carla Baratta. As expected, the series is set after the events of Sons of Anarchy, "where EZ Reyes (Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border". Mayans will premiere in late summer or early fall, 10 years after the start of Anarchy. Several roles were recast and a handful of new characters were added. "Emilio Rivera, who played the Mayans boss", will make some appearances in the spinoff. The show comes from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and Lowriders' Elgin James, with Norberto Barba directing the pilot and serving as an executive producer. Sons Of Anarchy itself had something of a troubled history in the United Kingdom, which may give buyers pause.
