The upcoming second season picks up roughly six-eight months after the finale of the first season. Ahead of the premiere, FX has shared some sneak peeks of the upcoming season, which includes some pretty haunting images that tease of the conflict that is due to come.

Earlier this years at the San Diego Comic Con, the cast of the series dropped huge hints about a "bloody", "darker" season 2. "If you liked season one, season two is a lot darker," Edward James Olmos who plays the role of Felipe Reyes, a once-strong Mexican patriarch, and Angel (Clayton Cardenas) and EZ's (J. D. Pardo) father, had said during the 'Mayans MC' panel at SDCC. "There's a chance we're going to see some 'Sons of Anarchy' members for sure," creator Elgin James had said. 

Where to watch

Season 2 of 'Mayans MC' will be premiering on FX on September 3, 2019.
