What is the Mayans MC season 5 release date? Now that it has five seasons, it’s safe to say that Mayans MC has stepped out of the shadow of Sons of Anarchy and become its own TV series.
Taking place on the Mexican border, the story of the eponymous biker gang during a particularly complex period has expanded the universe of the Sons of Anarchy in many ways. We now know more about the lineage of the Cartel, the intertwined politics that makes this whole area of California a minefield for any sort of development, and of course, the Mayans MC, rivals-turned-allies of the Sons of Anarchy.
But what was the Mayans MC season 5 release date? Brothers EZ and Angel, the core of one of the best drama series, were on two diverging roads. EZ became more entrenched in the club’s bloody ethos, while Angel’s got a taste of family life. Where did this bring them? And what about all the police presence that kept showing up? We’ve answered every question we can, but say nothing about how you got here…

Mayans MC season 5 release date and reviews

What is Mayans MC season 5 about?
The Mayans MC season 5 plot followed EZ leading the club to war against the Sons of Anarchy. His fate and that of the club and the Santa Padre charter were in the spotlight.
EZ, and many of the other members, believed they should re-enter the drug trade and declare war on the Sons of Anarchy. Marcus Alvarez, head of the table, thought otherwise, and tempers flared on the issue.
Creeper’s girlfriend Kate was revealed as an informant, and he attempts to give himself up at the end of season 4, but he could also flip on the club. This tension permeated season 5. On top of those plotlines, we had Angel and Adelita’s child.
