Though Mayans M.C.—the Sons of Anarchy spinoff that follows Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes and the Santo Padre Charter of the Mayans Motorcycle Club — is wrapping up its fourth season, showrunner Elgin James said this isn’t the end for series.
“We know where it ends. I know the very last shot. It’s not in Season 4,” he explained to Variety.
“So I’m just going to say there at least has to be one more [season].
But we know exactly where it ends, and we have been headed there for a while now.”
FX has not confirmed if there will be a Mayans M.C. Season 5 yet, but James explained that the network knows exactly where he wants to take the show.
“I wasn’t able to verbalize [the ending], or I was too scared to verbalize it, until last season,” he said.
“I was like, by the way, this is how it all ends.” He told the actors and then the studio and the network so they could “get a sense” of what was going to happen, but he added that “we’ll see if [the ending is in] Season 5 or Season 15.”
While we don’t know yet know what a fifth season would be about, Season 4 has already been setting up possible plot threads that Season 5 could explore.
In Season 4’s penultimate episode, Miguel Galindo returned to the neighborhood to have a meeting with EZ, Alvarez, and El Banquero’s sister Soledad.
Soledad proposed that Galindo serve as Soledad’s liaison north of the border to increase all their profits.
