The Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC is still most likely a few months away from premiering, but there is still a lot that fans should know about the show before it airs.
Recently, series-creator Kurt Sutter took the stage at the ATX Television Festival and gave fans some insight into what they can expect, as reported by THR.
While sitting among other producers of the show, as well as the main cast, Sutter opened up about Mayans MC and how it is not just "Latino Sons of Anarchy."

One thing that is clear, is Mayans MC does not take place in an overlapping timeline with Sons of Anarchy. Rather, it is set in a post-Jax Teller world.
"We talk a little bit about the ramifications of that final day for Jax," Sutter said. "It sort of changed the fabric of Northern California and trickled down South."
It has been revealed that Emilio Rivera will reprise his Sons of Anarchy role as Mayans leader Marcus Álvarez.
However, Sutter indicated that he may not be the original series star to make an appearance.
"My job in this series, if we're blessed enough to continue, is to transition from the mythology [of Sons] and honor that, because we want to acknowledge where we came from and those fans, and then balance that with having a show that is original and different and doesn't feel like the Latino version of Sons of Anarchy," he explained.
Sutter has put to rest any concern that Mayans MC would be a "political" series by saying, "It's not a political show. I do not write political shows. I should not write political shows."
"But the same way Sons was a fictitious club and family in a real world, the real world always impacted that show," he continued. "The whole storyline with the white supremacist was based on the 45 percent uptick in white supremacy groups when Obama was in office."
"So, this is not a show that will deal head-on with those issues but it is a show that takes place on the border, and it's a politically charged, emotionally charged part of the world, and that will bleed into the storyline or else it won't be authentic," Sutter added.
The cast of the new series is perfectly suited for the job, as Sutter wanted to be as authentic as possible.
"The thing I love about this cast is they have more jail time than screen time," he joked, with Rivera adding, "He hired actors to play bada—es on Sons, but he hired bada—es to play bikers [on Mayans]."
Sutter also addressed the idea of "a white guy from Jersey...writing solely about Latino culture," and how he was aware that "should not happen." He went on to explain that his "goal is really just to get the white guy out of the room as quickly as possible."
After Sons of Anarchy ended, Sutter wanted to change things up creatively, so he opted to do something a little bit out of his wheelhouse.
"I knew I didn't just want to jump right into the same thing albeit in a different culture. I was sort of burned out a little bit so I needed to do something else and something different and I thought a medieval drama would be good. That worked out well," Sutter joked, in reference to the one-season of The Bastard Executioner that aired on FX.
"But it definitely cleansed my palate. ... We creatively knew we wanted to put a couple years between the potential series so when I came back from Wales or wherever the f— I was, that's when the process began," he revealed, suggesting that had he skipped The Bastard Executioner then Mayans may have already been launched and airing today.
To get fans pumped up for Mayans MC, FX dropped a debut teaser featuring the Mayans crew.
In the clip, the motorcycle gang can be seen rolling down the highway surrounded by fields of roses and rows of red candles along the road.
In another teaser for the show, fans got a good glimpse of series star JD Pardo.
Pardo plays Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes in the new series, a prospective member of the Mayans crew who only recently got out of prison.
Not every new teaser for the show has been all about cast reveal, as evident by the "leave you mark" clip.
In the video shared to the official Mayans MC Twitter page, the Mayans seal can be seen having been embedded in the tires of a motorcycle, leaving behind an imprint when the rider speeds off.
In the most recent Mayans MC teaser, the crew can be seen riding along the top of a wall, presumably on the Mexican/American border.
The crew roars down in uniform style, as the screen flashes to reveal the series will debut sometime this fall on FX.
