The network announced in a press release on June 24 that the sophomore season of the Sons of Anarchy spinoff series will be riding back onto TV screens on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 10 p.m. ET, almost exactly a year from the date of the September 4, 2018 premiere of the series.
News that Mayans M.C. is set to return in the span of just a few months was met with excitement from fans, who are still reeling from the Season 1 finale and eager to rev the engines back up.

"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," he added. "We couldn't be more excited to take this ride to a second season."
"The Mayans M.C. 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," added Sutter.
