The Sons of Anarchy spin-off series Mayans M.C. made its first debut at the 2018 San Deigo Comic-Con. Cast members JD Pardo, Sarah Bolger, and Clayton Cardenas, as well as co-creator Elgin James and executive director and producer, Norberto Barba, sat down with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello to talk about the upcoming series.
The pressure is running high for the Mayans M.C. series to carry on the Sons of Anarchy legacy. The biggest question is, whether we can expect to see similarities, familiar faces, or hidden easter eggs throughout the series. Co-creator, Elgin James, says that we can expect the show to share the “same universe” as Sons of Anarchy, but set in a “different world”. Executive director and producer, Norberto Barba, explains they successfully kept a distinction from Sons of Anarchy by creating their own world with its own “look”.
During the interview, the cast members share their favorite Sons of Anarchy characters and whether we can compare JD Pardo’s character ‘EZ Reyes’ to ‘Jax Teller’ from Sons of Anarchy. Mayans M.C. is set to premiere September 4th, on FX. Watch the Mayans MC Comic-Con Cast interview below.
