Few spinoff shows can go the distance, but "Mayans M.C." has proven to be a satisfying "Sons of Anarchy" follow-up that viewers continue to enjoy. After the game-changing events of the Season 4 finale, it is probably wise to assume that fans of the FX crime drama are curious to know everything they can regarding what will happen next in "Mayans M.C." Season 5.

Despite some "Sons of Anarchy" fans being upset with the ending, many have taken to the spinoff series centering around the rival motorcycle club, the Mayans. The first of its four released seasons received significant acclaim, and its follow-up also received impressive ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. After 40 episodes, things are starting to heat up on the FX crime drama, and the fourth season saw things get pretty chaotic for the titular motorcycle club. Ongoing challenges from both outside and within were a big focus culminating in EZ Reyes (JD Pardo) taking control from longtime Mayans M.C. leader and franchise favorite Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera).

After the finale was released on June 14, 2022, many wondered if the show was canceled or if more episodes would roll into FX. Luckily at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022, it was officially announced that "Mayans M.C." would ride again (via Deadline). Here is everything there is on 'Mayans' Season 5.

What is the Mayans M.C. season 5 release date?

While an exact premiere date has not been revealed, according to Variety and the "Mayans M.C." official Twitter, the fifth season of the series will release sometime in 2023. The show has constantly released a season every year, but when it comes to exact dates, it isn't like "Mayans M.C." has followed the same pattern each time out. The first two sets of episodes started in the fall of their respective years, while Seasons 3 and 4 arrived in the spring. So there is no telling when in 2023 "Mayans M.C." Season 5 will roll out episodes. When Elgin James broke the news, he did mention that they had been picked up for a fifth outing well before the Comic-Con announcement, so it does seem like preparation has been well underway, arguably indicating the FX crime drama will make its way back to screen in mid-2023. 

What is the plot for Mayans M.C. Season 5?

Emilio Rivera, who played Marcus Alvarez on "Sons of Anarchy," has had some pause-worthy moments in the franchise. The season finale was arguably another of the character's more shocking ordeals. The man who has essentially been at the head of the table most of his run on the franchise was usurped by EZ Reyes. Now JD Pardo's on-screen persona will be taking the reigns going into Season 5, and while not much is known about the official synopsis, war with the Sons of Anarchy seems inevitable. President of Original Programming and FX Entertainment Nick Grad did, however, shed some light on what's going to happen in a statement regarding the fifth season (via TV Line). "The Mayans have battled for respect, territory, and power through four intense seasons that have set the stage for an explosive fifth season that will test their survival under EZ's newly claimed leadership." It looks like "Mayans M.C." Season 5 will be putting EZ's leadership skills to the test. 

Who is in the cast for Mayans M.C. Season 5?

There is no official cast list for "Mayans M.C." Season 5. Still, as previously mentioned, it has been confirmed that JD Pardo will be back in action after his bold takeover in the Season 4 finale. In an interview with TV Insider, Pardo and fellow cast members Sarah Bolger, Danny Pino, and Clayton Cardenas verified their attendance and hinted at what's to come in Season 5.

There were many shocking moments from the Season 4 finale, and one that was brought up was the intense showdown between EZ Reyes and his brother Angel played by Cardenas. "That scene where the two brothers are just looking at each other most honestly, it feels like a palpable change in the tone of the show," a bold claim made by actress Sarah Bolger who plays Emily Galindo in the series. "I feel that episode really tonally changed both the brothers' relationships and all the relationships." Bolger also indicated that her character potentially losing her child and sister "is devastating," which could drastically affect her persona in the next installment. Cardenas also believes there is a chance change is coming for his "Mayans M.C." personality Angel Reyes, saying, "He's envisioning a life for himself outside of it, and he's envisioning a life for his family outside of it, and I think the potential is enticing for him."

Will Mayans M.C. Season 5 be the last one?

If you were hoping to see the Mayans Motorcycle Club ride on for many more seasons to come ... well ... we've got some bad news for you. In January 2023, FX announced that "Mayans M.C." Season 5 would be the last one (via Collider), ending the series. At the time of this writing, we're still not sure when the series will air, but when it finally does roll up, it'll be the final time we see EZ Reyes in action.

Where you can watch previous seasons of Mayans season 5

While there seems to be plenty of things for fans of the FX crime drama to get excited about regarding the future of the series, it does appear that "Mayans M.C." fans will probably have some time to kill before the show returns for its fifth season.
