FX Releases First Trailer for Sons of Anarchy Spinoff Mayans M.C.Images via FX/YouTube TV News Mayans M.C.
Just in time for the show’s Comic-Con panel, FX has released a new trailer for Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy spinoff Mayans M.C.
As Variety reports, the series stars JD Pardo as Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a recently released convict hoping to gain entry into the show’s titular motorcycle gang. The club is composed of familiar characters like Emilio Rivera’s Marcus Alvarez, a recurring antagonist throughout the original seven-season run of Sons of Anarchy.
At first, he is tasked with grunt work like detailing the other riders’ bikes, but soon, EZ gets caught up in more dangerous circumstances. He’s shown digging underground tunnels and fighting in a graveyard shootout, all set to an ominous, Spanish-language version of “Paint It Black.”
In a brief flashback, it appears that EZ was a student at Stanford before prison derailed his life, and his family clearly disapproves of his involvement with the gang. “You’re in this now son; there’s no getting out,” says his father, played by Edward James Olmos. Either way, EZ is a long way gone from the clean-cut college student shown in the flashback.
Mayans M.C. premieres Sept. 4 on FX. Watch the show’s trailer below.
