The first glimpse at the Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC has been released.

In a trailer for upcoming shows for 2018, FX have teased the new offering from Kurt Sutter and fans are already getting pretty excited.

The new show will reportedly be set four years from where SOA left off and follows Ezekiel 'EZ' Reyes (JD Pardo) - fresh out of prison and now a rising figure in rival bike gang the Mayans.

FX released an official synopsis, which read: "Set in the aftermath of Jax Teller's death at the end of SOA's seven-season run in 2014, Mayans MC will focus on the struggles of Ezekiel 'EZ' Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border.

"EZ is the gifted son of a proud Latino family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his need for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape."

Speaking about the new show, FX president of original programming Nick Grad, told the Hollywood Reporter: "Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style.

"Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we can't wait for the world to see."

The new teaser clips come as Sutter is announced as the first major show-runner to sign with Fox since it was bought out by Disney.

FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf said: "Kurt Sutter has been part of the FX family since the network's first breakout success with The Shield and throughout its ascent as one of television's premium networks for original programming.

"He awed fans with the iconic Sons of Anarchy and will soon launch the next great outlaw saga Mayans MC.

"He epitomizes the 'fearless' storyteller that we value so highly and we are grateful to build on this longstanding and incredibly successful relationship with this new overall deal."

The 10-epsiode show will air later this year.
