FX has released a teaser for Mayans M.C. season 3, which will premiere in March. The 10-episode third season of the FX Drama series will premiere Tuesday, March 16th at 10pm with back to back episodes, which should be considered a treat for fans. By the time the new season premieres, it will have been 16 months since season 2 wrapped up. Fans have been waiting for over a year to see new episodes of the hit drama series, so even the brief teaser should be welcomed by hardcore devotees.
Mayans M.C. follows the life of Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes (JD Pardo), a newly patched member of the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Once the golden boy with the American Dream in his grasp, EZ and his brother Angel (Clayton Cardenas) are closer than ever after uncovering the truth behind their mother's murder while their father Felipe (Edward James Olmos) struggles to reconcile the choices he and his sons have made. There's a lot going on in the complicated drama, much like the show that inspired it, Sons of Anarchy.
Mayans M.C. season 3 begins after U.S. Assistant District Attorney Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon) threatens to deport Felipe, EZ and Angel chose to leverage incriminating information to protect him rather than to free rebel leader Adelita (Carla Baratta) from federal custody, leaving her to give birth to Angel's son while in handcuffs. Meanwhile, Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino) is left reeling over the loss of his mother to apparent suicide, while others quietly suspect foul play. Additionally, the Mayans seek vengeance on their rivals, the Tijuana M.C. Vatos Malditos, after a surprise attack on their club. When the smoke clears, they discover the body of a Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original - there will be hell to pay.
Showrunner Elgin James says, "season 3 picks up just a few months after the slaughter of the Vatos Malditos." He goes on to state, "EZ, now fully patched, struggles to find his footing within the club's hierarchy and haunted by his murder of Dita, finds himself torn between darkness and the gravitational pull of his new love interest." James goes on to say that Angel "loses himself in sex, booze, and violence, until a shot at redemption lands on his doorstep." The showrunner went on say that the Alvarez family isn't the only one going through some struggles. You can read what else James had to say about Mayans M.C. season 3 below.
"Coco [Richard Cabral] spirals on a journey into hell as his demons finally overwhelm him. Alvarez [Emilio Rivera] will be forced to decide once and for all where his loyalties truly lie, with the Mayans or with Galindo [Danny Pino]. And ghosts of the past come calling for all of the M.C., both individually and as a club; from past loss and loves, to a dead SOA member buried in the Mexican desert. This is a season about reckoning. This is the season we get to know these characters beyond the kutte. This is the season we tell their stories."
Mayans M.C. was co-created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. The series is executive produced by James, Michael Dinner and Sutter. The 10-episode third season is produced by 20th Television and FX Productions. Michael Irby, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Emilio Rivera, Sarah Bolger and Sulem Calderon also star in the gritty motorcycle drama.
