MAYANS M.C. — Pictured: Danny Pino as Miguel Galindo. CR: James Minchin/FX
Mayans M.C. kicks off their third season tonight on FX with not one but two episodes. This series has done a great job at developing an array of characters throughout two seasons. As we venture into the third season, the border has been closed between Mexico and the United States and everyone is feeling the repercussions. This on top of the fact that the Mayans M.C. have accidentally killed a member of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original. Revenge is imminent. Also, we find a grieving Miguel Galindo after his mother’s apparent suicide. Season three feels like it’s a powder keg ready to go off at any second.
Here is the synopsis for season three of FX’s Mayans M.C.
Mayans M.C. follows the life of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo), a newly patched member of the Mayans M.C. charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Once the golden boy with the American Dream in his grasp, EZ and his brother Angel (Clayton Cardenas) are closer than ever after uncovering the truth behind their mother’s murder, while their father Felipe (Edward James Olmos) struggles to reconcile the choices he and his sons have made.
After U.S. Assistant District Attorney Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon) threatens to deport Felipe, EZ 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.
Ahead of the premiere of the third season, LRM Online had the opportunity to talk with stars of Mayans M.C. Carla Baratta and Danny Pino.

As well as the guilt of the death of his mother. During our interview, we talk about what we can expect from their characters in season three. Be sure to check it out down below!
