‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series – Season Three’ To Hit Blu-ray This February!

This February, home audiences will be whisked deep into the vortex of a culebra underworld on the verge exploding in FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES – SEASON THREE.  Across 10 new horror-packed episodes, MIRAMAX and El Rey’s fan-favorite, supernatural crime saga returns on loaded blu-ray and DVD, available only from Entertainment One.  Both sets include hours of specially-produced extras including audio commentary with the cast & crew, featurettes including “Season 3 Catch Up,” “Inside the Episodes,” “Season 3 Best Kills,” “Evolution of a Fight Scenes” and much more!

Season three of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” based on Robert Rodriguez’s original film, follows Seth and Richie as they continue to fight their way through the chilling world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico.  Once the baddest outlaws in the land, the Gecko brothers made a run for the Border two years ago to save their lives — and their fortune.  After stumbling into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, they encountered the vampire goddess Santánico, joining her cause to settle an old score, and it won them a place in the culebra world.  Now that world is on the verge of violent and destructive explosion as new enemies hell-bent on domination gather to take them down.  But, in typical Gecko fashion, Seth and Richie assemble an unlikely crew (some new, some old) to take on the forces of hell.

Coming this February to Blu-ray!

Season three features a returning ensemble cast including D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios and Jake Busey.

Season 2 of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ Debuts August 25th On El Rey Network

Season 2 of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ Debuts August 25th On El Rey Network

from-dusk-til-dawn-2015-trejo

Last year, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES premiered as El Rey Network/Miramax’s first scripted drama and drew critical acclaim for the reimagining of Rodriguez’s cult classic film From Dusk Till Dawn. On August 25th at (9:00PM EST), the sophomore season of this fan-favorite, supernatural crime saga returns with 10 new episodes that expand the universe of the story from Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Rodriguez, who also directs the first episode. And on August 26, Entertainment One will begin to release each episode for purchase on all leading digital platforms.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’

Season One of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona, Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and his violent, unpredictable brother Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz, Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, who were taken hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.

In Season Two, the show travels between Mexico and the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Our characters are all living in very separate worlds – Santánico Pandemonium (Eiza González, “True Love) and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Madison Davenport, “Shameless,” Noah) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia, Quinceanera,”Sons of Anarchy”) is protecting his wife and young daughter in  the suburbs. Carolos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama, “That ’70s Show,” To Whom it May Concern) and Scott Fuller (Brandon Soo-Hoo, Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.

This season, the cast is joined by Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills), who appeared in the original movie as Razor Charlie and Esai Morales (“Criminal Minds,” “NYPD Blue”), currently a series regular on “The Brink.” Trejo plays The Regulator, a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand and Morales will appear in the role of Lord Amancio Malvado, a figure of terrifying cruelty and power who has a complicated and obsessive relationship with Santánico. They will also be joined by Briana Evigan(Step Up 2), who does a turn as Sonja, an American expatriate working as a tattoo artist in a Mexican mercado. Jake Busey also resumes his guest starring role as Professor Aiden “Sex Machine” Tanner and Demi Lovato makes a guest starring appearance

Aside from Rodriguez, directors who will be behind the camera this season include Edurado Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project), Alejandro Bruges (Juan of the Dead), Joe Menendez (Ladrón que roba a ladrón) and Dwight Little (Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers).


FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES is a Miramax production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment.  Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, showrunner Carlos Coto,  Diego Gutierrez and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa and Miramax’s Zanne Devine and Daniel Pipski.

Called “radically different” and “a fascinating ride” by The Associated Press, season one of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Holtz), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller and his family, and took them hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood.
