Filming Locations: Where is Mayans MC filmed?

Mayans Where Filmed

Posted by
Mayans MC is the long-awaited Sons of Anarchy spin-off, expanding its violent universe with the stories of the Mayans Motorcycle Club gang. The action takes place two and a half years after the events occurred at the end of the 7th season of the original series.

The ten-episode drama has an almost completely new cast, lead by J. D. Pardo (The Twilight Saga, Snitch) as Ezekiel. Sarah Bolger (The Tudors, Into the Badlands) is also starring in the project, along with Michael Irby (True Detective, The Unit) and Clayton Cardenas (Snowfall, American Crime).

The first season of Mayans MC was filmed in California and Mexico. We tried to keep spoilers to a minimum and as usual, we will be updating this report with new information about the filming locations of the series weekly:

    1. Please tell you mom that we are very grateful for the intel provided. Updated!

  3. The third episode where the burnt bodies where... seems to be plaza Mexico in south gate.

    Also the casino seen where Jimmy and the Mayan are speaking outside seems to be the hustler casino in gardena

  4. The casino scene on 3rd episode is the Hustler casino in Gardena.

  5. Does anyone know the location of Galindo’s house? (Sorry for the double post)

    1. Yes! Where is that fabulous house? It doesn't look like California so I think it's in Mexico/Baja.

  6. The rebel camp in the rocks on episode 3 is at Vasquez Rocks in the Agua Dulce area of Santa Clarita. This location is most famous for Star Trek episodes, and the opening credit scene from the original Lone Ranger TV series.

  7. hi, just seen episode 5, where is the mexican town?

  8. Looks like the most recent one aired on 10.16.18 was filmed off of Highway 8 in the Pine Valley Campo Boulevard area?
