BBC Two Sets February UK Premiere Date For ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Spinoff ‘Mayans MC’
‘Sons Of Anarchy’ spinoff ‘Mayans MC‘ will finally ride onto UK screens as BBC Two sets a February UK air date for Season 1 of the biker gang series.
Co-created by SoA’s Kurt Sutter and ex-biker-turned-filmmaker Elgin James, the show continues the saga in a post-Jax Teller world. EZ Reyes (JD Pardo – ‘Revolution’, ‘East Los High’) is fresh out of prison and a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Californian/Mexican border. EZ must carve out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy who had the American Dream within his grasp.
The cast also includes Edward James Olmos (‘Battlestar Galactica’, ‘Dexter’), who plays Felipe Reyes, father of EZ. He is the once strong Mexican patriarch, crushed by bullets and hard labour, who struggles to keep his past buried and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path.
Other cast members are Sarah Bolger (‘Into the Badlands’, ‘Once Upon a Time’), Clayton Cardenas (‘American Crime’), Richard Cabral (‘Lethal Weapon’, ‘American Crime’), Michael Irby (‘SEAL Team’, ‘True Detective’, ‘Taken’), Raoul Trujillo (‘Jamestown’, ‘The Blacklist’), Antonio Jaramillo (‘Shades of Blue’, ‘Dallas’) and Carla Baratta.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ was the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history, and if you’ve never seen it, I urge you to go and catch up with it on Netflix UK right now. ‘Mayans’ continued that trend, becoming the most-watched new cable series of 2018 in the United States, averaging 8.2 million viewers weekly. The drama has already been ordered for a 2nd Season.
‘Mayans’ comes to the UK as part of a massive deal signed last year between the BBC and US network FX. This will also see shows such as ‘Pose‘, ‘Devs‘ and ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘ arrive on the UK broadcaster in 2019.
‘Mayans MC‘ Season 1 premieres in the UK with a double bill from Saturday, 2nd February 2019 at 10.40pm on BBC Two.
