Fans of the series Mayans M.C. have been anxiously waiting for more news, photos, or even a glimpse at season 3. Well, we will have to wait a bit longer. The cast and crew’s return date to re-start filming has been delayed to mid-January due to rising COVID cases. They were initially going to be back on January 11, 2021, and the new date is currently January 18. But if cases continue to climb, that date could very well change again until it is safe for everyone to return.
On January 3, 2021, in a joint statement, SAG-AFTRA, the Joint Policy Committee (JOC), and the Producers Guild of America (PGA) agreed to pause on productions taking place in Southern California.
In a statement, the SAG-AFTRA National Executive Director David White said:
“Even putting aside the risk of acquiring COVID on set — a risk that we have done a great deal to mitigate through our safety protocols — on-set production always poses some risk of injury, whether because of a stunt gone wrong, an equipment failure or a garden-variety fall. Right now, with few if any hospital beds available, it is hard to understand how a worker injured on set is supposed to seek treatment. I would like to thank the JPC and the PGA for their efforts to reinforce safety measures for all, and we acknowledge and appreciate the major studios and other producers who have proactively stepped up and postponed their production during this emergency. It is too hard to say right now when the situation may improve, but we are monitoring closely and will make sure that our members have the information they need to make the best decisions they can to protect themselves and our community.”
Mayans M.C. takes place around four years after the Sons of Anarchy finale and is set in the fictional town of Santo Padre on the California/Mexico border. The crime drama series on FX was created by Kurt Sutter and Elgin James – who will be taking the reins for season 3.
The series follows the Mayans motorcycle club that was introduced in Sons of Anarchy. The series stars JD Pardo, Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Danny Pino, Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Joseph Lucero, Vincent Rocco Vargas, Maurice Compte, Gino Vento, Tony Plana, Michael Ornstein, Ada Maris, and more.
