Mayans Season 5 Synopsis – What Has Happened In The Series So Far?
Mayans M.C. is located thousands of kilometers abroad in the imaginary California boundary town of Santo Padre, two and a half years following the incidents of Sons of Anarchy. The series centers on the challenges of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes, a prospect in the Mayans M.C. club who is stationed along the border between the United States and Mexico.
EZ is a talented Mexican-American whose family’s ideal vision was trampled by syndicate barbarity. He is now being driven by his need for revenge into a life he never wanted and will never be able to leave.
In the last episode of Season 4, EZ addresses Bishop, whom he had pledged to restore to his previous position as president, but who was instead given the vice president position.
Then, EZ takes Alvarez’s seat at the head of the table and begins to deliver an odd, cult-like speech about “our nation,” “a new day rising,” and his strategy to “raise us to glory.” The men finally start pounding the table in favor of their new president despite first appearing a little spooked out, especially Angel.
The episode ends with us back at the storage where Soledad keeps her supply of heroin. As they watch the depository catch fire, a person in all black enters it and douses the entire area in combustible liquid, and strikes a match. However, the identity of the arsonist is never disclosed.
What happens next, can only be answered when Mayans Season 5 gets released!

Mayans Season 5 Plot – How Will The Story Progress?
When Mayans Season 5 returns everything will have transformed, with EZ welcoming his position as the chief of the motorcycle gang. EZ became a nasty and lethal character in the previous season, slaughtering a lot of people as his kindness diminished.
We haven’t actually seen a kind leader before, the showrunner Elgin James noted in an interview with GameSpot. “We haven’t encountered someone who is motivated by brotherly love. Marcus used this equipment, but after that, see how Sons of Anarchy characters would just disappear like flies.
Provided that the dispute between the Mayans and the Sons of Anarchy is evolving in a destructive way, this is likely going to make things worse. As an outcome of achieving this breakdown with his brother, he commenced a brawl that had the possibility of turning violent somewhat swiftly.
As all of this is happening, a covered individual took off to the storehouse where the narcotics were stored and put it on the blaze. Who was this person and what relation does he/she have with EZ?
All these queries can only be satisfied with the release of Mayans Season 5!
