Fx has officially ordered MC Mayans! 

FX is moving full steam ahead with Mayans MC, officially ordering the long-in-the-works Sons of Anarchy spinoff to series with a 10-episode order.

As TVLine reported back in July, the original Mayans MC pilot, which was shot last winter, was scrapped for creative reasons. Norberto Barba (The Bridge, Preacher, The Path) was brought in direct a new pilot. Several roles were recast and a handful of new characters were added.

Mayans MC is set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes (Revolution‘s JD Pardo, pictured above) fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi 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.
