Mayans MC renewed for season 2 by FX after strong viewership

Mayans MCFX isn’t making you wait all that long in order to learn about the future of Mayans MCToday, the network officially confirmed that it will be back for a second season!

In a press release today, the network noted that the Sons of Anarchy spin-off is averaging more than eight million viewers an episode across all linear / non-linear viewings. This is enough to make it the #1 new series on cable in 2018, topping even another hit in Yellowstone over on the Paramount Network. The second season is slated to premiere at some point in 2019 — with our closest guess being the fall.

Here’s what some very-important people involved in the process have to say about the renewal.

Nick Grad, FX Network – “Mayans M.C. is performing fantastically, proving to be a breakout first season,” said Grad. “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.”

Kurt Sutter, executive producer / co-showrunner – “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.”

Elgin James, executive producer / co-showrunner – “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. 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.”

Hopefully, Mayans continues to build on the established mythology so that it ends with as dramatic a peak as we know that it can.
