With Kurt Sutter having been fired from ‘Mayans M.C.’, the bike gang drama might go in a new direction in season 3. However, the release of season 3 is repeatedly getting postponed due to the global pandemic. That means writers and the new showrunner have more time in hand to fine-tune the plot twists. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming season of ‘Mayans M.C.’
‘Sons of Anarchy’ rode to its success for 7 seasons straight before hitting a dead end. But its spin-off ‘Mayans M.C.’ still has a long way to go if it wants to claim blockbuster success like its predecessor. However, ever since the release of season 2, the show has been treading through rough waters. The controversy surrounding show-runner Kurt Sutter has resulted in uncertainty about the show’s future.
- The future of ‘Mayans M.C.’ is on shaky grounds
- This cast member has some much-awaited update on the release date
- What new plot twist will season 3 bring for SAMCRO?
The future of ‘Mayans M.C.’ is on shaky grounds
Back in October 2019, Kurt Sutter was reported to have been fired from ‘Mayans M.C.’ after an internal investigation by the Disney network. The news left fans with three major questions:
2. Who will lead the show now?
3. And will there be a season 3?
In his letter to the cast and crew, Sutter wrote, “This morning I was fired by Dana Walden and John Landgraf for all the complaints levied against me. Not the way I wanted to end my 18-year relationship with FX. At least being fired for being an abrasive dick is on brand”.
“I sincerely apologize if I’ve made people feel less or unsupported. My intention was actually the opposite. Clearly, I’ve not been paying attention. My arrogance and chronic distraction has made this wreckage.”
Ahead of the Season 2 finale, the president of original programming at FX Entertainment Nick Grad told “Deadline”,
“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’ upcoming show-runner”.
Which ‘Mayans M.C.’ Member Are You?
This cast member has some much-awaited update on the release date
Just when everything was coming back on track for team Mayans, things came to a screeching halt for the motorcycle drama early this year due to the global pandemic. It has been a waiting game ever since. However, the cast and crew are eager to get back to the set. Recently, actor JD Padro tweeted, “We are getting closer [to filming]. But, physical production has not started yet. Still [we are going through] a process [with] COVID-19 guidelines, but we are getting closer. I’ll be sure to let everyone know when we have an official date”. Now, isn’t that encouraging?
What new plot twist will season 3 bring for SAMCRO?
The mystery of the dead guy ‘Mayans M.C.’ ended with a serious plot twist with the Mayans crew standing over a dead body. The face of the dead body was turned away. According to a Deadline report, many fans think that while shooting up everyone in the VM president’s home, Mayans might have ‘accidentally’ killed one of the SAMCROs, judging from the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Kutter and EZ, and other crew members’ shocked expressions while looking at the dead guy. Does that mean ‘Sons of Anarchy’ will be back for a series reboot? Or is it time for a much-needed ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘Mayans M.C.’ crossover? Fans have to wait for season 3 to find all the answers.
Is Angel really the father of Adelita’s son?
On the other hand, the finale showed that while Mayans were looking for the missing VM, Angel gets an unusual message and a call from Potter, claiming that Adelita has given birth to his son. The government officials have confirmed the child’s paternal relation with Angel through a DNA test. However, Clayton Cardenas, who plays Angel in this biker gang drama, is doubtful that his character is a dad. However, he told Entertainment Weekly that if he is indeed a dad, “… I can definitely see a full season surrounding to Angel trying to get Adelita and the baby back”.
There are a lot of possibilities about what might happen in season 3, but that has to wait until Disney FX confirms the new production date. Are you excited about the new season? Let us know in the comments section below.
