Kurt Sutter Leaving Mayans M.C. After Season 2

HUGE, heartbreaking but possibly exciting news has been announced that co-creator of Mayans M.C., Kurt Sutter will be stepping down from the show after season 2 wraps. Sutter is the brains behind the beloved Sons Of Anarchy so it was only fitting that he was also a part of the spin-off Mayans M.C. that premiered September 2018. It was a break out hit and fans from Sons Of Anarchy quickly fell in love with the new story line and are excited for season 2 to start next week on September 3rd. 

Sutter made his announcement Tuesday night at the season 2 premiere of Mayans at Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. Sutter told fans according to Entertainment Weekly,

“It’s time for the white man to leave the building”

Explains that show is based on Latino characters living on the Mexico/Cali border and it is only fitting that the story be told from voices of color. Elgin James has been with the show from the start and he really is the culture and the life behind the creation of the Mayans universe. 

James is forever grateful for Sutter taking a chance on him he tells EW,

“Kurt Sutter changed my life… He took a shot on me… and the last two years I’ve learned so much from him that it’s left me speechless, really.”

Elgin James is ready to take on this new role and fans are surely ready to ride with him!

It is unknown what Sutter will pursue now…of course he teased about a Sons Of Anarchy prequel and SOA fans probably passed out! He has often spoken about his idea of exploring the life of Jax’s father John Teller.

Sutter explains the premise to EW,

“It would be a one-off called First Nine. It’ll begin in Vietnam with John and Piney [William Lucking]… there will be one episode for each guy who joins the first nine. That’s what I want to do”

Fans will be holding their breath until more information is spilled about that! We all know Sutter isn’t done yet with the M.C. world, cannot wait to see what is in store for his future. As of now fans have less than a week to wait for season 2 of Mayans to premiere on September 3rd at 10pm on FX. 

Would you want to see a SOA Prequel??

A look back at the start and creation of Mayans M.C.

Mayans M.C. Season 1 RECAP

The time has come, prospects! Season 2 premiere of Mayans M.C. is in 1 week. Season 1 of Mayans was a break out hit for FX network and fans have been waiting a long time to watch what will happen next. Co-creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James have been hard at work with the writers and the cast since January 2019 and have been dropping little hints about what is to come along the way. 

The season ended back in November 2018, we wanted to put together a little recap group by group for fans to refresh and get ready to ROLLOUT next week! Here are the highlights…

WARNING SPOILERS!!!!

Reyes Family: EZ, the youngest member of the family is newly out of prison for accidentally killing a cop when going after his mother’s killer many years before. EZ has made a deal to get out of prison in exchange for collecting intel on the Galindo Cartel. EZ will be working closely with the Cartel by joining the Mayans M.C. as a prospect, Angel his brother is a member. He must report all of his information to his cousin and do his best not to get locked up again. 

At first, only Felipe (EZ and Angels father) knows about EZ’s deal but at the end of the season, Angel finds out. After getting caught with a body in their trunk, both brothers are roped into a deal with shady agent Lincoln Potter, who is after the Cartel. Angel is disgusted by this betrayal from his own brother and pressures EZ to leave the club after they have completed their mission from Potter, killing their cousin. 

In the last episode, EZ decides to go against his brothers wishes and has a sit down with Bishop, the president of the M.C., and asks him to become his new sponsor as prospect instead of Angel. The same night Angel sees Happy, a member of the Sons Of Anarchy, at the Mayans clubhouse and immediately places him at the one he was after the night he shot the cop and landed himself in prison. 

Meanwhile, during all this brotherly drama the audience finds out that ole Felipe Reyes is not as innocent as he seems. He has a dark past of working as a hit man and has been trying for a long time to move on. More on that subject is left for season 2…

The M.C. – The main underground job of the Mayans is to be drug runners for the Galindo Cartel. They hide and transport drugs state to state and also have a tunnel going from Santo Padre to Mexico. They are responsible for jobs here and there for the Cartel but they become more involved with the help of the head of the Mayans, Alvarez. In the first episode, their shipment gets jacked, it is thought that the club may have a mole. 

A few of the members have their own side jobs going on behind the clubs back. Angel, Gilly and Coco all full patch members have been secretly working with Los Ovidados, a rebel group with an agenda to take down the Cartel. Angel includes EZ in on the deal because he thinks he can trust him, but all goes haywire when the rebels kidnap Miguel, the head of the cartel’s, baby boy. 

Also, while trying to cover-up an accidental killing, Angel and Gilly find ahidden tunnel from Mexico to the secretary of the club, Riz’s girlfriends place. Angel decides to rat on Riz to seem like the mole and takes on his role as the new secretary. 

Coco has some family drama of his own. He becomes close to his daughter who for her whole life thought Coco was her brother. She was raised by his mom and did not spend much time with him. She has been running tricks of her own as a semi-prositute and lies to Coco about his mom beating her. Enraged, Coco goes to confront his mother and ends up killing her. 

At the end of the season the Mayans become even more entangled with the Cartel and Alvarez decides to hang up his cut and leave the Mayans to work for the cartel. 

Galindo Cartel – The cartel has been around for many years and is now run by Miguel Galindo. He is very powerful and tends to get his way by any means necessary. Early on it is known that he is married to Emily, who used to be in a long-term relationship with EZ before he went to prison. Miguel and Emily have a son together who gets kidnapped by Los Ovidados. Distraught and desperate to get their son back Emily becomes more involved in the workings of the cartel. Their efforts keep failing until Miguel decides to make a deal with the head of the Los Ovidados, Adelita to begin working with her and he gets his son back. 

As soon as all seems well with the Galindo family, Emily and Miguel are taken into custody by Lincoln Potter and the feds. They threaten both of them to get information. Emily learns of EZ’s deal to get out of prison but stays strong in supporting her husband. Miguel makes a deal to be controlled by the feds but without their knowledge he will be double crossing them and working with Los Ovidados and the Mayans. 

Los Ovidados – A rebel group comprised of all members that have been orphaned or affected by doings of the Galindo Cartel. The head of the group Adelita, watched her parents and brother brutally murdered by the cartel henchmen and it has become her life’s mission to gain followers and go against the cartel. They send out propaganda here and there and stage a kidnapping of Miguel’s son. They gain intel from Angel and the other Mayans and move from place to place so they are never found. There is a possible romance happening between Angel and Adelita but more on that in the next season. 

The rebels plan plays out and they get Galindo on their side because they know if they are a team they will be unstoppable. Miguel keeps his promise and gives the members a safe place to stay and he delivers the man who killed Adelitas family, who happens to be his right hand man, Devante. She murders him and Alvarez takes over his job after leaving the M.C.

We cannot wait for the premiere of season 2 on September 3rd at 10pm on FX! You can fully catch up on season 1 now available on DVD and also streaming on Hulu. Check out the latest trailer….

Creators Sutter & James Talk Sons Of Anarchy Cross-Overs In Mayans M.C.

Season 2 of FX’s Mayans M.C. is fast approaching and everyone has been not so patiently awaiting to see what will happen next with the club. The cast and creators have been on multiple press tours this summer including Comic-Con back in July and Television Critics Association in early August. All discussing the new season and teasing us with behind the scenes posts and short trailers. 

Entertainment Weekly sat down with co-creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James during the TCA’s and got some more insight on where possible Sons of Anarchy cross-overs could happen! The obvious one will be SAMCRO member, Happy (David Labrava), since they ended Season 1 with EZ realizing that is was him that killed him and Angels mother. Elgin James told EW,

“Working with D.L. has been amazing, you’re going to see a lot of Happy this season because there’s a lot of stuff to unpack. I can’t say where it ends because we’re still figuring it out, but you can expect to spend a lot of time with the character this season.”

One thing for sure is that EZ is looking for revenge! The cast spoke last month at Comic-Con about how this season is all about retribution and unpacking all those secrets that came to light in the first season. JD Pardo who plays EZ Reyes posted this picture of him writing Happy’s signature on a window on his Instagram (@jdpardo). He is out to get him!

I see you 🙂 #mayansfx

A post shared by JD Pardo (@jdpardo) on

Season 1 also ended with the biggest Sons connection that could be coming to a close? Alvarez decides to trade his cut for a suit and begin working for Galindo. Alvarez was the main connection between SAMCRO and the Mayans with the gun running. Could this possibly mean more of one on one meet ups with the Mayans and Sons?

Another way they are bringing in SOA is through EZ’s special skill of a photographic memory. Last season showed a lot of his past that helped him connect new people in his life and to ultimately know that Happy is his mother’s killer. Early in season 1, there is a flashback when EZ was in prison and the queen herself, Gemma Teller, was sitting in the waiting room to see Clay. Sutter purposely put in that little easter egg, he tells EW,

“That EZ was inside while Clay [Ron Perlman] was incarcerated. Like there was crossover, to give people a sense of timeline. I don’t know if I’ll use her or that device again, but if I need to, I’ve established it.”

James and Sutter are very careful and methodical about when and how much Sons Of Anarchy is going to intertwined into Mayans. They know that if they have little cameos here and there that they could have to unpack a lot of stuff, James explains to EW,

“When we consider bringing someone back, we have to think about the ripple effect it’ll cause and what it all means. I think Kurt wants people to remember that for what it was. Jax for what it was. And in your memory or your imagination, it could be whatever you want it to be.”

They do not want to ruin any kind of thoughts that Sons Of Anarchy fans might of fantasized about what has happened to the surviving characters. Luckily, we all have season 2 of Mayans on September 3rd to look forward to and see how all the connections will unfold. Check out the latest teaser trailer posted >>

EZ Is Not A ‘Karaoke Version’ Of Jax

 

When Kurt Sutter first came up with the idea for Mayans M.C. he knew that there were going to be a lot of comparisons to Sons of Anarchy. You cannot have a spin-off show with a HUGE fan base like Sons and not be aware of how the audience might react. The creators of Mayans were very careful in choosing JD Pardo to play the leading role of EZ Reyes and I think we can all agree it was the right choice! Pardo has often spoke with interviewers about how there was a lot of pressure on him to get the role right, he understood what he needed to do in order to keep EZ his own character and not be just in Jax Teller’s shadow.  

JD Pardo sat down with CinemaBlend during the 2019 TCA Press Tour in the beginning of August and those very same questions came up. Mainly about how he is working towards becoming his own character not the “karaoke” version of Jax Teller. Pardo respects and understands that no one can ever replace Charlie Hunnum’s role as Jax Teller but he explains “what I wanted to do, I had to find an in, and my challenge was, how do I not make a karaoke version of Jax? Nobody likes…I mean, karaoke’s fun, but you know, nobody cares for a karaoke version, right?” 

Meaning you can never be better than the O.G., but that is not what EZ is about, he is at a whole different time in his life. First of all, he is a prospect not the VP of the club, EZ is still learning his way around. Jax grew up in that life and already had the respect, he wasn’t detailing bikes and running errands. Pardo wants to keep EZ evolving into a legendary character like Charlie did with Jax. Everyone knows season 1 Jax is NOT the same as season 7 Jax! The fans are all hoping Mayans goes as far as 7 seasons so we can see EZ make this transformation.

In the end the audience is rooting for EZ no matter what because you want your leading man to succeed and find his own way. Only have to wait a little longer, season 2 starts September 3rd.

Brother VS Brother Mayans M.C. Trailer [NEW]

FX’s Mayans M.C. just released a new teaser trailer! It is all about the feud that is to come between brothers Angel and EZ. 

WARNING SPOILERS: Last season we left off with Angel finding out about EZ’s deal to get out of prison by agreeing to collect intel on the Galindo cartel. After finding this out, Angel gets dragged into having to kill their cousin in order to protect EZ and himself from being exposed to the M.C. 

Angel wanted EZ to step down from the club and get out of that life. He felt betrayed and also was worried about what would happen to them if the club ever found out EZ’s true intentions for wanting to join. As we all know EZ went against Angels wishes and requested that he know longer be his sponsor and for Bishop aka El Presidente to become his sponsor instead for the remainder of his prospect year. Angel did not take that well at all and therefore the feud continues!

Check out the newest trailer, there might be a battle to come…

Looks like the brotherly love might be over…we will just have to wait and see. Mayans returns on FX on September 3rd. Whose side are you on?

What’s Next for ‘El Secretario’?

One month to go, prospects! Mayans M.C. is back on FX September 3rd. We are so excited to see what the club is up to next, especially the characters that might have not had as much screen time last season. Season 1 focused a lot on developing the new story and characters separate from Sons of Anarchy. 

WARNING SPOILERS: Each member had a lot of secrets that slowly came to light throughout the season, including in the episode Cucaracha/K’uruch’, the club members find out that ‘Riz’ aka El Secretario has been hiding an underground tunnel to Mexico and possibly not cutting the M.C in on the profits. When learning this information they decide to strip ‘Riz’ of his title but…. back on July 1st, co-creator Kurt Sutter tweeted this pic of Antonio Jaramillo on the set of Season 2 with caption “El Secretario. Who’s ready for season 2? #mayanmonday #mayansfx

Does this mean he might be reinstated??

Antonio Jaramillo also had an interview with Entertainment Weekly during Comic-Con a few weeks ago, talking about the possible developments of where his character could go. He might have a more troubled past than has been led on?

Mayans fans will just have to wait and see! What characters would you like to see develop more in season 2?

Get excited prospects, the Mayans M.C. cast and crew were at comic con this weekend and they spilled some awesome details about the new season. Unfortunately, co-creator Kurt Sutter could not make it this year but Elgin James and all our favorites made an appearance. They all hit the panel Sunday, July 21st and it was really great to see they love that they have for all the writers and each other. 

Edward James Olmos (Felipe Reyes) seen here in this clip talking about how the table read is the first time they all get to read the script. The cast gets to experience the twists, emotion and laughter all at once as a group. The writers do an amazing job of bringing the characters and culture to life in this small forgotten town.

After panel, Elgin James (co-creator), J.D. Pardo (EZ Reyes), Clayton Cardenes (Angel Reyes), Edward James Olmos (Felipe Reyes) and Sarah Bolger (Emily Thomas) all went around for even more exclusive interviews, including this one with IGN live. J.D. Pardo talks about how season 2 has a central theme of retribution, especially after learning at the end of season 1 who killed Angel and his mother. EZ’s character is more into the why of his mother’s death and learning that this world is where he belongs. They all danced around trying not to give 100% answers or spoilers for what is to come but with Happy from SAMCRO as the main target there is sure to be some Sons of Anarchy crossover.

Mayans M.C. Season 2 Teaser [NEW]

Newest update on season 2! Mayans fans have been patiently awaiting season 2. Many hoping that it will be longer than the first that concluded after only 10 episodes in November 2018. Creators said they would be back in the writing room starting in January 2019.

Kurt Sutter spoke earlier this year to The Hollywood Reporter about his writing process, “It’s hard for my brain to shut down, so if there’s a theme or an idea, I’ll jot that down. I don’t want to start unpacking things in my head. I just want to let it sit for a minute… I like to come into each season with at least a loose sense of structure and where I want it to go. My writers help me get there.” Season 1 ended with a lot of possible directions that the show could go. Can’t wait to see what will happen to EZ and the club next, but we did get a little glimpse yesterday!

Creator, Kurt Sutter posted this photo to his Twitter (@sutterink) of actor Antonio Jaramillo that plays Michael ‘Riz’ Ariza.

The first season left some unanswered questions and opened up even more opportunities for some Sons of Anarchy cameos and crossovers to unfold in the new season. We can’t wait for September!
