Sons of Anarchy star Kim Coates confirms a role in FX’s Mayans M.C. season 4. The spinoff series takes place approximately two and a half years after the events of Sons of Anarchy in the fictional California town of Santo Padre. Focusing its tale on Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, the series chronicles the character’s struggles within the Mayans’ M.C. charter. Mayans M.C. premiered on FX in September 2018, and has earned four seasons in its journey to date.
The Sons of Anarchy original series premiered in 2008, following the tale of the titular Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original (SAMCRO). The drama series primarily centers on both the personal and family life of Jackson “Jax” Teller, as portrayed by Charlie Hunnam, and his ultimate rise to follow in his father’s footsteps to lead the club. However, notable roles from supporting characters such as fan-favorite Alexander “Tig” Trager round out the compelling character dynamics throughout the widely-acclaimed series.
In recent posts to Twitter, Sons of Anarchy star Coates confirms his role in Mayans M.C. season 4. In his posts, the actor emphasizes the valiant return of Trager, citing that he is “really back” and that the “war is on.” The beloved actor encourages fans to keep watching, leaving audiences with a stern reminder about what never to do regarding “Tiggy.” Check out the tweets below:
Coates is not the first SAMCRO member to make a crossover appearance in the Sons of Anarchy spinoff series. Chibs, who was awarded the presidential position at the end of the original series, makes an appearance in Mayans M.C. Also crossing over into the spinoff was Happy, one of the more ruthless SAMCRO members. Another beloved non-SAMCRO member to make the crossover to Mayans M.C. was Chucky, first introduced to audiences as a troubled figure seeking protection from the motorcycle club. Other notable crossovers from Sons of Anarchy are Katy Sagal, who portrays the polarizing Gemma Teller throughout the original series, and Emilio Rivera, depicting Mayan M.C. president Marcus Alvarez.
Lovers of the original series are likely ecstatic to hear of Tiggy’s return to the Sons of Anarchy world, even as told through the lens of Mayans M.C. Trager’s unusual personality, unpredictable temperament, and violent tendencies always made for an exciting television experience. It will undoubtedly be interesting to see how Tiggy’s character works in the spinoff series and how deep the role will ultimately go. Nevertheless, audiences will get the opportunity to relive the Tiggy experience as Coates gears up to reprise his celebrated role.
