“Mayans M.C.” Season 1 Won’t Be Coming to Netflix US

For those wanting to see Mayans MC come to Netflix, you’ll be out of luck if you live in the United States. The announce comes from one of the writers of the show who outlines why Mayans won’t be streaming nor will Sons of Anarchy return either. 

Let’s set the stage before we get into exactly what’s going on with Mayans streaming future. Up until last year, 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 a key FX show that was streaming on Netflix up until December 1st, 2018 when it left the service.

As you may know, Mayans MC is the spin-off series to Sons of Anarchy.

Mayans MC isn’t coming to Netflix

In a Tweet, the showrunner for Mayans and lead writer for Mayans (and SOA) confirmed that Mayans MC 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 MC 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.

What about other regions?

Other regions may actually get Mayans M.C. None have been confirmed yet but the UK still carries SoA as does Netflix Australia.

Are you disappointed that Mayans M.C. won’t come to Netflix? Let us know in the comments.
