The Sons of Anarchy spin-off has been handed a 10-episode order for Season 1.

"Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller, and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style,” said FX president Nick Grad in a statement.

“Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James, and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we can’t wait for the world to see.”

The new series will be set over two years after the events of Sons of Anarchy and will focus on EZ Reyes (JD Pardo) who is out of prison and ready to make a name for himself a member of Mayans MC.

He was once close to his dreams, but prison changed him forever, and he emerges with a whole new take on life. 

The impressive cast includes the likes of Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Richard Cabral and Michael Irby.

The original pilot of the series did not come in as well as expected, and that's what held the series up for so long. 

Norberto Barba was drafted in to direct the re-do of the pilot, and multiple roles were recast. 

FX also released the first picture of the series which shows the cast in action.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
