The series, the next chapter in the Sons of Anarchy saga, will premiere on Tuesday, March 16 at 10:00 pm ET/PT on FX with the first two episodes of its 10-episode third season.

After US Assistant District Attorney Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon) threatens to deport Felipe, EZ (Pardo) and Angel chose to leverage incriminating information to protect him, rather than to free rebel leader Adelita (Carla Baratta) from federal custody, leaving her to give birth to Angel’s son while in handcuffs.

Meanwhile, Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino) is left reeling over the loss of his mother to apparent suicide, while others quietly suspect foul play. Additionally, the Mayans seek vengeance on their rivals, the Tijuana M.C. Vatos Malditos, after a surprise attack on their club. When the smoke clears, they discover the body of a Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original – there will be hell to pay.

Michael Irby, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Emilio Rivera, Sarah Bolger and Sulem Calderon also star in the gritty motorcycle drama.

Mayans M.C. was co-created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. The series is executive produced by James, Michael Dinner and Sutter. The 10-episode third season is produced by 20th Century Television and FX Productions.
