“Mayans M.C.” has been renewed for a second season, FX announced Monday.
The “Sons of Anarchy” spinoff’s September premiere was the most-watched cable premiere of the year among adults under 50, according to Nielsen.
“‘Mayans M.C.’ is performing fantastically, proving to be a breakout first season,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “The series premiered as the highest rated cable series this year and continues to sustain a committed fan base, reflecting the talent and drive of creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. We couldn’t be more excited to take this ride to a second season.”
“The ‘Mayans M.C.’ mythology sprung from the womb of ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ but anyone who has taken the time to watch, knows it has become its own mythical creature,” said creator Kurt Sutter.
“It still feels like a dream that Kurt took a shot on me, and that every day I get to learn from him and work with our brilliant writers, cast and crew who pour their hearts, blood and sweat into bringing ‘Mayans M.C.’ to life,” added Elgin James, who co-created with Sutter. “I’m also grateful to FX, Fox 21 and FXP for their support and faith in me. I’m excited for the fans’ response to the rest of this season and I can’t wait to get back in the writers room and get to work on season two.”
“Mayans M.C.” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
