February 23, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

The lead in FX’s Sons of Anarchy spinoff has been cast. Deadline reports that JD Pardo (Revolution) will lead up the series as Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, whose hopes for a better life were stolen from him by cartel violence. In seeking revenge, he’ll be thrust deep into a world he never intended to enter in the first place.

The series is set in the aftermath of Sons of Anarchy and Jax Teller’s death. It follows EZ’s entrance into the Mayan Motorcycle Club charter on the border of Mexico and California. Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica) play Reyes family patriarch Felipe. Kurt Sutter, who co-created the series and was the man behind Anarchy, will executive-produce and direct the pilot.
