Premiere Date Confirmed For 'Sons Of Anarchy' Spin-Off 'Mayans MC'
| Last updated
Oh good, FX has sat down with its diary and finally confirmed the release dates for a stack of its shows.
As well as Mayans MC - a spin-off from Sons of Anarchy - it's confirmed when the new season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will air too.
It's been nearly four years since Sons ended, but fans will be chuffed to learn that Mayans MC will premiere on 4 September. That'll be the tenth anniversary of the first episode airing.
The new show picks up a few years after the end of Sons of Anarchy, with EZ Reyes now the main character. Played by Jorge Daniel 'J. D.' Pardo, he's fresh out of prison and now part of a rival bike gang.
The teaser trailer that was released last month shows the gang riding through fields of flowers, that drop dead as they pass. Pretty ominous stuff.
There'll be ten hour-long episodes of leather and motorbikes and probably a load of violence too.
It's expected that this will be just the beginning of Sons of Anarchy spin-offs. The creator of the franchise Kurt Sutter, along with writer Elgin James, have hinted that this will be the first of three spin-off series, with discussions also underway for a prequel and sequel.
In lighter news, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia will also return for a thirteenth season in September.
The hit sitcom will premiere on 5 September, featuring most of the main characters from previous seasons.
Although he departed at the end of the last series, Glenn Howarth's character Dennis will apparently return for a few episodes this time around.
The show premiered 13 years ago and has aired 134 episodes so far. It's also already been renewed for another season after this one airs - it's unstoppable.
The synopsis for the new season has been released. In part, it reads, "Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history - an Eagles Super Bowl victory."
On top of this, FX has confirmed that American Horror Story will return on 12 September.
So there we have it - we've got some biker gangs, some comedy, and some paranormal activity. That should ease the pain of summer being over a bit, eh?
