With Mayans MC, creator/producer Kurt Sutter takes the motorcycle culture he captured so vividly during seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy, and he moves it south to the Mexican border. Mayans MC, like its predecessor, tells the story of a motorcycle gang’s trials and tribulations, but with a strongly unique Latino feel. For the new show, Sutter teamed with co-creator Elgin James, and he told us that — as they developed and wrote the series — they couldn’t overanalyze things and make it Sons of Anarchy 2. Instead, they had to let the new show come up with its own rhythm and flow. (Click on the media bar below to hear Kurt Sutter)
Mayans MC will premiere September 4 on FX.
