Despite a recent behind-the-scenes kerfuffle that led to series co-creator Kurt Sutter’s firing, Mayans M.C. is returning for a third season at FX. With Sutter out, EP and Co-Creator Elgin James officially takes over as sole showrunner.

“We’re happy to continue telling the story of Mayans M.C. with our partners at Fox 21 and excited that Elgin James has earned the opportunity to become the series’ showrunner,” said Nick Grad, Fox’s president of original programming, in a statement. “Kurt Sutter identified and chose Elgin as his partner on the show from the outset and Elgin has been instrumental to the success of the series, leveraging his experience and creative vision to make Mayans M.C. with this incredible cast, crew and creative team.”

Sutter was fired from the Sons of Anarchy spinoff last month after FX received multiple complaints about his behavior. He sent a letter to the Mayans cast and crew following his dismissal in which he described himself as “an abrasive dick,” adding that “my arrogance and chronic distraction has created wreckage.”

While the Bandidos publicly call themselves a club state authorities often refer to the group as a criminal gang Police cast wary eye on ‘outlaws’

Per FX, Mayans Season 2 has thus far averaged 4.6 million viewers per episode across all platforms. The finale airs on Tuesday.

Mayans Season 3 will bow in Fall 2020.

  1. Arrggghhh seriously, another season of Wetbacks on Wheels? Just what we need.. But i guess it does show just how porous the southern border is. Thats a plus, right? Ok so how good is WboW? Just watch the first few ep’s of SOA and compare the two. The writing is far superior on SOA. END OF STORY. I guess FX is gonna be scraping the bottom of the trash can for as many taco fillings as they can get for atleast one more year! Smutter shpuldve gone with First Eight!
