“Mayans MC is performing fantastically, proving to be a breakout first season,” Nick Grad, president original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement this past Monday. “The series premiered as the highest rated cable series this year and continues to sustain a committed fan base, reflecting the talent and drive of creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James. We couldn’t be more excited to take this ride to a second season…The Mayans MC mythology sprung from the womb of Sons of Anarchy, but anyone who has taken the time to watch knows it has become its own mythical creature.”
James stated, “It still feels like a dream that Kurt took a shot on me, and that every day I get to learn from him and work with our brilliant writers, cast and crew who pour their hearts, blood, and sweat into bringing Mayans MC to life. I’m also grateful to FX, Fox 21 and FXP for their support and faith in me.”
The series has a current rating of 7.7/10 on IMDB. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, it is the top-rated Tuesday-night series on all of cable or broadcast among men 18-34 and men 18-49.
