Admiral Adama is taking charge of the Sons of Anarchy spinoff.

Edward James Olmos has been cast to star in the eagerly awaited Mayans MC series.

The project, which has received a pilot order at FX, is set in a post-Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border, “struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.”

The Mayans were recurring players in Sons of Anarchy throughout the show’s seven-year run.

The pilot is expected to begin filming next month, with Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter writing the script with Elgin James.
