Lead Role Cast For 'Sons of Anarchy' Spin-Off 'Mayans MC'

Mayans MC will also be set away from northern California where SOA was based.

In Sons of Anarchy, the Mayans were a Hispanic group which battled the biker club led by actor Charlie Hunnam's character. Plotting vengeance against the cartel, FX is still searching for their EZ Reyes.

Mayans MC is expected to lens next month, though there's now no mention of when Sutter and Elgin James' offshoot will race onto the small screen.

Mayans MC takes place after the events of Sons of Anarchy, and will focus on Mayan MC prospect EZ Reyes.

Per TVLine, Olmos will play the "Reyes family's once-strong patriarch Felipe, who, after years of being crushed by bullets and hard labor, struggles to keep his past buried and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path".

So far FX has only ordered a pilot of the show, meaning Mayans MC still has a long way to go before it makes its way to our screens in a weekly serialized format.

The show will pick up precisely where Sons of Anarchy left off, although show creator Kurt Sutter has suggested on previous occasions that the tone and style of Mayans MC will be markedly different.
