From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series comes back for seconds August 25th

Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network and Miramax have announced that the second season of the TV series expansion of the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN franchise will be making its debut on El Rey on August 25th.

While the first season was a ten episode reimagining of the 1996 feature Rodriguez directed from a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino, which was about a group of characters running into vampiric trouble at a Mexican bar called the Titty Twister, season two will be dropping the survivors into uncharted territory with a completely new story.

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 new dynamics. Our characters are all living in very separate worlds –Santánico and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez is protecting his wife and young daughter in the suburbs. Carlos Madrigal and Scott Fuller emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat. 

Returning actors D.J. Cotrona (Seth), Zane Holtz (Richie), Jesse Garcia (Freddie), Eiza González (Santánico), Wilmer Valderrama (Carlos), Madison Davenport (Kate), Brandon Soo Hoo (Scott), and guest star Jake Busey (Tanner/Sex Machine) will be joined by series newcomers Danny Trejo, Esai Morales, Jeff Fahey, and Briana Evigan.

Rodriguez is directing the season two premiere and finale, with other episode directors including Eduardo Sanchez, Alejandro Brugués, Joe Menendez, Dwight Little, and showrunner Carlos Coto.  

I don't watch much TV, but FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES was a must for me, as the movies had a huge impact on my youth. There was a stretch of time when I would watch the original FROM DUSK TILL DAWN repeatedly on a daily basis, so much that it became the first movie I ever watched a hundred times. I enjoyed seeing a different version of the movie play out over season one, and now I'm very interested in finding out what the all-new season two will bring.

The show was missing a couple things, however. Danny Trejo had been in all three of the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN movies, so it didn't seem right that he missed out on season one. We now see that the Trejo absence is being rectified this season, but there's still someone else I want to see in the cast: Cheech Marin. Marin played three separate roles in the '96 film, he needs to be worked into the TV show somewhere!
