Watch The Teaser Trailer For 'Sons Of Anarchy' Spin-Off 'Mayans MC'
| Last updated
The first teaser trailer for Mayans MC - the long-awaited Sons of Anarchy spin-off - has been released, and while it's not giving much away, it looks slick as hell:
The series will follow on from where the hit show left off in 2014, set four years after the death of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam).
It will focus on Ezekiel 'EZ' Reyes (JD Pardo), a former golden boy who's fresh out of prison - who must establish his new outlaw identity as a rising prospect in the Sons of Anarchy's rival bike gang.
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."
A spin-off has actually been in the works for a while, initially announced in August 2015. Originally, it was due to focus on recurring characters from Sons of Anarchy, but by July 2016, it was decided that the pilot was going to be completely redone, with a number of roles recast. Norberto Barba was also brought in as an executive producer along side Kurt Stutter.
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."

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 epitomises 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-episode first season will air later this year, with the teaser revealing it will be showing on FX this autumn. EXCITED.
