"Mayans MC Pilot 2.0. Wrapped. #mayansmc #samcroquartet," he captioned the snap.

As Sutter mentioned, this was the second pass at filming the pilot episode for Mayans MC. Reshoots episode came after FX called for a re-written script and casting changes. Sutter explained to PopCulture.com that it isn't unusual to be embarking on reshoots. He said a similar situation happened before SOA premiered.
"Ironically, I don't know why I was surprised," Sutter said of the decision to reshoot. "It was the same situation we had on Sons, we had major recast and we reshot 95% of the pilot and that's gonna happen again."0comments
"What it does for me is it allows me to watch it and then go what didn't work, what did work, and really do a big rewrite," he continued.
The Mayans MC pilot was written by Sutter and Elgin James. Norberto Barba (Lights Out, The Bridge) was brought in to direct the reshot version.
