Mayans M.C., the Sons of Anarchy spinoff that follows a rival biker gang in the fictional California town of Santo Padre, has been renewed for Season 4. The FX series is set two and a half years after the events of Sons of Anarchy and follows the life of Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes, a former prospect and newly full patch member of the Mayans M.C., Santo Padre Charter.
At the start of the biker drama series, EZ has recently been released from prison and is prospecting with the Mayans M.C. biker club — while also secretly working as an FBI informant to help take down the Galindo cartel. At the same time, EZ and his brother Angel, who’s a full patch member of the Mayans M.C. and his brother’s sponsor in the club, are working to find out the truth behind their mother’s murder many years earlier, though Angel also has some secrets of his own. By the end of Season 3, allegiances have switched several times over, but there’s still no shortage of hidden motivations and family drama.
The Mayans M.C. Season 4 Plot
Though there have yet to be any specific details announced about the plot of Season 4, co-creator and showrunner Elgin James released a statement saying: “In Season 4, we look forward to diving deeper into each character's truths, exploring the danger of the combustible world they inhabit, and for each writer, cast member and crew to stake out our place as storytellers.” In an interview with Deadline, James teased a bit more about Season 4. "This season, we dealt with consequences, and I think we’re going to continue to,” he said. “I think everything is going to continue to spiral.”
When asked about the possibility of Mayans M.C. running for seven seasons like its predecessor Sons of Anarchy, James responded hopefully, “that’s sort of how we have it planned out, just because that’s the model that we knew.” However, he added that “shows usually don’t run seven seasons anymore, so it may just be one [more] season. We just know, each time we get to live another day, we’re just going to lay it all out.”
The Mayans M.C. Season 4 Cast
It’s likely that many of the current main cast members — including J.D. Pardo, Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Sarah Bolger, Danny Pino, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Emilio Rivera, and Ray McKinnon — will return for Season 4, though no official announcements have been made.
The Mayans M.C. Season 4 Premiere Date
Season 4 is expected to start airing sometime in 2022, and assuming it follows the pattern of the three previous seasons, it will likely consist of 10 episodes. We’ll update this space with an official premiere date when it’s known.
