Sons of Anarchy Spinoff Update: Mayans MC Pilot to Be Reshot, Recast

FX is sending its Sons of Anarchy spinoff into the shop for a tune-up.

TVLine has learned that the pilot for Mayans MC — the in-the-works SOA offshoot centered on the Mayan Motorcycle Club — is being completely reshot and partially recast.

Additionally, Deadline reports that Norberto Barba (The Bridge, Preacher, The Path) has been brought in as an exec producer and will direct the new pilot.

It remains unclear which roles will be recast, by the original Mayans MC pilot included Battlestar Galactica‘s Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica) and Revolution‘s JD Pardo.

Set in a post-Jax world, Mayans MC follows Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes’ (Pardo) entrance into the Mayan Motorcycle Club charter on the border of Mexico and California; Anarchy fans will recall the Mayans as a force to be reckoned with, one that tangled with SAMCRO on numerous occasions.

Anarchy boss Kurt Sutter co-created Mayans with co-executive producer Elgin James.

    Zero interest in this. I didnt find the mayans appealing as anything but an occasional foil or partner for soa and after the way they ended the original so predictably dark.

    I don’t understand why we need this show after how good the original SOA was.

  5. John Jennings says:

    Can’t wait to see Mayans MC if it’s 1/2 as good as sons it should be worth watching, you will know just by watching the pilot. Bring it on

  6. The Rookie says:

    You might have a typo her sir: Battlestar Galactica‘s Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica)

      It’s actually pretty common to re-shoot a pilot. They even did it with the original SOA pilot, when they replaced Scott Glenn with Ron Perlman. And the project isn’t on for the last to years. The official order was this year, if I remember correctly.

    Completely agree with this:

    Why don’t release the new show on another channel than fox which isn’t admirable as other channels

  12. Debbie says:

    When is it going to come on? After the Sons of anarchy ended nothing good is on tv. I miss that show.

  13. Lance Downey says:

    Wrote a whole paragraph for nothing

  14. Bark Star says:

    Dont you dare recast Eddie !

  15. Television says:

    Is it ever a good thing when they reshoot, recast? Usually a sign of things aren’t working.

    • MsHarleyD says:

      I think it’s more promising. In my opinion, says FX is interested in greenlighting it. Otherwise why bother? They did the same with SOA, according to Sutter. 😊

    I am so excited for this show. Their awesome bikes and it will be nice seeing the biker world from another culture’s perspective. Besides I’m a huge fan of Emilio Rivera and Mayans MC guyz. 😍
