Miramax and El Rey Network announced on March 2nd that the ten episode second season of From Dusk Till Dawn is officially in production. A re-imagining and expansion of the 1996 cult classic film of the same name, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series has been favorably received, and was named one of our favorite television shows of 2014.
Eiza González, Wilmer Valderrama, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, and Jesse Garcia will all be returning to reprise their roles. Robert Rodriguez will be directing the season premiere.
From the official press release:
Season Two explores a new chapter in this Supernatural crime saga that expands the universe of our story across two borders from Mexico to 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.
Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (González) and Richie (Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal (Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Soo-Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, as changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.
Today, the El Rey Network released a behind-the-scenes teaser video to celebrate the start of production. We only get to see a few tantalizing clips of what looks like the stone ruins underneath the Titty Twister, a blurry Kate Fuller, and some scruff on a certain Gecko brother, but I will take what I can get.
Almighty goddess Santánico, bless Seth Gecko and his hot, hot beard.
You can catch up on the first season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series on Netflix.
