James said in a statement, "20th is my home, I can't wait to see what we're able to create together moving forward. And every single member of the 'Mayans' family, from our top of the call sheet to our set PAs and every single person in between have put their blood and sweat into making 'Mayans' something special on the set and on the screen", as reported by Variety.
