‘Sons of Anarchy’ Spinoff ‘Mayans MC’ reveals EZ’s Reason For Vengeance; New Synopsis & Casting Announcements
If latest reports are to be believed, casting announcements have revealed a new synopsis for "Mayans MC," the "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff, in which FX announced two months back that they were officially ordering a pilot for the same. Now that the pilot is about to begin in March, casting announcements for the series are being made every now and then. Those who have paid close attention would know that the last couple of announcements provided a different synopsis than the one given during the press release.
According to Comic Book, the new "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff, "Mayans MC," synopsis does not tease anything different from the plot but it surely adds a little bit more information about the world EZ Reyes belongs to. The new synopsis describes EZ as gifted, which kind of explains why his brother Angel, played by Clayton Cardenas, feels like the lesser child in the family. Edward James is playing the Reyes family patriarch, which explain the words "proud Latino family" in the synopsis. Moreover, fans have also come to know a bit on why EZ seeks vengeance against the cartel.
"Set in the aftermath of Jax Teller's death at the end of SOA's seven-season run in 2014, "Mayans MC" will focus on the struggles of Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border. EZ is the gifted son of a proud Latino family, whose American dream was snuffed out by cartel violence. Now, his needs for vengeance drives him toward a life he never intended and can never escape," the "Mayans MC" Deadline synopsis reads.
Fans now know that EZ was trying to make something for himself but was stopped by the cartel. The cartel destroyed his dream. Hence, he seeks vengeance. This story angle could be a crucial part of the "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff "Mayans MC." Fans are expecting a story equal to that of the original. FX may have a major hit in hand. The pilot will be filmed in Los Angeles. It is being directed by the "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter. Elgin James, the showrunner, has written the script.
The cast for the "Mayans MC" series includes JD Pardo, Antonio Jaramillo, Clayton Cardenas, John Ortiz, Richard Cabral, and Edward James Olmos. FX could air the series this Fall. Antonio Jaramillo and Richard Cabral have been confirmed for the "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff.
