Additionally, 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios, has signed James to a new multiyear overall deal.
Last season saw EZ Reyes (J.D. Pardo) fully embrace the dark side following a chain of tragic events including the murder of his former love Gaby Castillo (Sulem Calderon) by his own hand. In the final moments of the season finale, Reyes took his place at the head of the table—literally—after he and the rest of the MC ousted club El Presidente from the position.
With Bishop (Michael Irby) as his second in command and a full-blown war ahead with SAMCRO, there’s no telling what mayhem Season 5 will bring.
“Yeah, we always knew we wanted to go there [with EZ],” series co-creator Elgin James previously told Deadline. “In Season 4, we definitely stepped on the gas a little bit. While creating these characters, Kurt [Sutter] and I talked about how EZ had this path out and was going to go to Stanford but that was never going to happen. The universe was going to spit him out back where he belongs—that was always going to be his fate. For three seasons he wasn’t sure if he was in or out but now he’s all in. He’s making the wrong decisions but he’s handling it in the same way he did with his dog when he was little where he did what no one else could. That’s what he’s doing now with the club where there are egos is in the way like with Bishop [Michael Irby], Angel [Clayton Cardenas]. And I don’t say ego in a negative way.”
