FX has handed a season three renewal to troubled drama Mayans MC.
Nick Grad, Fox’s president of original programming, in a statement:
“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.”
Show co-creator Sutter was fired from the Sons of Anarchy spinoff last month after FX received multiple complaints about his behaviour. Co-creator Elgin James will now serve as showrunner on the series going forward.
Mayans Season two his averaging 4.6 million viewers per episode across all platforms. The finale airs on Tuesday. Season three is set to air in Fall 2020.
