FX has given a season 2 renewal to their “Sons of Anarchy” spinoff, “Mayans MC.”
The new series came in with such a bang and high viewership that the renewal was announced after just 4 episode of the 10 episode season.
“Mayans MC is performing fantastically, proving to be a breakout first season,” Nick Grad, president original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, said Monday in a statement. “The series premiered as the highest rated cable series this year and continues to sustain a committed fan base, reflecting the talent and drive of creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. We couldn’t be more excited to take this ride to a second season.”
Added Sutter: “The Mayans MC mythology sprung from the womb of Sons of Anarchy, but anyone who has taken the time to watch, knows it has become its own mythical creature.”
“It still feels like a dream that Kurt took a shot on me, and that every day I get to learn from him and work with our brilliant writers, cast and crew who pour their hearts, blood and sweat into bringing Mayans MC to life,” said James. “I’m also grateful to FX, Fox 21 and FXP for their support and faith in me.”
I’m here for all of it – especially J.D. Pardo.
