Just renewed for season 4, Mayans M.C. continues to surprise season after season. But can you catch seasons 1-3 of the Sons of Anarchy spin-off on Netflix? Sadly, the answer is and will continue to be no.
Let’s set the stage before we get into exactly what’s going on with Mayans‘ streaming future. Up until 2018, Netflix and Fox had an ongoing relationship where they added content to Netflix on an annual basis. Not every show was available but many, including those from FX often were.
Sons of Anarchy was one of those big FX shows that was streaming on Netflix up until December 1st, 2018 when it departed the service.
Of course, that’s all changed since then with Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox and as part of that big acquisition was FX. The strategy going forward, at least in the US has been keeping everything to Hulu.
As you may know, Mayans M.C. is the spin-off series to Sons of Anarchy and is created by Elgin James and Kurt Sutter. It follows EZ Reyes fresh out of prison after the events of SOA.
Mayans M.C. isn’t coming to Netflix in the United States
Mayans M.C. will not be coming to Netflix in the US. This has been known since season 1 and will continue to be the case indefinitely.
In a Tweet, the showrunner for Mayans and lead writer for Mayans (and SOA) confirmed that the show wouldn’t be coming to Netflix. Kurt Sutter took to Twitter on December 1st to address fans disappointed in the removal of SOA.
In the Tweet, we have confirmed what we feared when we originally predicted that Mayans probably won’t come to Netflix.
Where is Mayans M.C. streaming instead?
At the moment in the United States, you have three streaming options available. The biggest streaming service includes Hulu. The subscription service includes the first season so far. That should be no surprise given Fox is a partial investor in Hulu and so is Fox’s new owner, Disney.
Could the show move to Disney’s new platform Disney+? It’s unlikely. Disney has outright stated that Disney+ is specifically for its kids’ content. That means it’ll probably stay on Hulu unless Disney pulls out of there and starts a new adult platform.
Will Mayans M.C. be on Netflix in other regions?
Sadly, it doesn’t look like other regions will be recipients of Mayans M.C.
In the United Kingdom, which does carry Sons of Anarchy, the series is available and continues to be on the BBC who hold an output deal with FX. It is expected in the long term, however, that the show will cycle over to Disney+ Star.
In Canada, the show is exclusively streaming on FX Now whereas Aussies can catch the show exclusively on Foxtel Now.
