The 25-second long trailer begins with a desolate desert road and “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones playing as 10 members of the Mayans Motorcycle Club ride by. While it offers few details regarding the characters or the premise of the show itself, the tease was more than enough to rev up social media.

The spin-off, reportedly “set in a post Jax Teller world,” follows a new recruit named EZ Reyes (Revolution’s JD Pardo) as he pledges to the pivotal Mayans motorcycle club, which alternated between friend and foe of SOA‘s SAMCRO. EZ is now forced to create a new outlaw identity for himself whereas once he was a “golden boy who had the American Dream within his grasp.”

Fans of SOA got a first glimpse of the spin-off in late January when FX released a video promoting all of their original series that are set to air in 2018. In the short teaser, which showed a number of characters and the Clubhouse, fans heard the mysterious line, “If the Mayans want a future, we gotta choose a new side,” suggesting that a new era is in store for both the MC and Reyes family.
