From Dusk Till Dawn Nicky Whelan Maurice Compte

El Rey's From Dusk Till Dawn series has been resurrected for a third season, because it takes a lot to kill a vampire. They're even boosting their cast numbers, adding the likes of Nicky Whelan (pictured above) and Maurice Compte.

Whelan is an Australian actress who has appeared in the popular Aussie soap Neighbors as well as American flicks like HALL PASS and THE WEDDING RINGER. Her most recent horror effort has been the ill-fated FLIGHT 7500, which finally saw a release this year. Her character has not yet been revealed.

Compte has appeared in END OF WATCH, A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES, and four episodes of Breaking Bad. He will be playing Brassa, "a mysterious, Rasputin-like figure who takes on the outlaw Gecko brothers."

These two will be joining returning cast members D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios, and Jake Busey in season three, which 

continues the Gecko Brothers' saga, as they fight their way through the world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the border two years ago, to save their lives - and their fortune. They ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess, Santánico. The Geckos joined her cause and settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now, that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering - dark forces, hell-bent on destruction and domination. It's up to the Geckos to stop them - but they can't do it alone.

Other new cast additions include Tom Savini as Burt, a retired pothead demon hunter, Ana de la Reguera as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords, and Marko Zaror as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in Hell.

Currently in production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, From Dusk Till Dawn season 3 is set to run for ten episodes and will be premiering on El Rey later this year.
