Robert Rodriguez's 'From Dusk Till Dawn' Gets a Second Season

 

Robert Rodriguez's Network Renews Robert Rodriguez's 'From Dusk Till Dawn'

 

Just three episodes in, and the El Rey Network is already renewing their first scripted series for a second season. I suppose it helps though that the founder of the network is also the creator of the show.

Robert Rodriguez’s newfound network has given the greenlight for a second season of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn,’ a show he created and brought to the small screen after adapting it from the 1996 cult film of the same name, which he also directed.

Season 2 will be comprised of 13 one-hour episodes and shot in Austin, Texas, but little else is known about what exactly the plot will entail. Season 1 was a much more straightforward endeavor, as the film was used as template from which to extend and explore a world of criminals and vampires along the border of Texas and Mexico.

“This is a truly unique property and one that has really resonated for viewers,” said Rodriguez of the renewal. “It has been a joy to bring these characters back to life and have the opportunity to take our storytelling to a whole new place. We look forward to going back into production later this year and are excited about raising the bar even higher in season two.”

One of the main criticisms of the first season, at least in the beginning, is that the pacing is slow, as a two-hour movie is being stretched across a season’s worth of episodes. What’s more, as the story of the felonious Gecko brothers kidnapping a family and eventually finding themselves in a vampire-populated brothel has been told on the screen, the series needs to make up for an apparent lack of cunning.

While the first season still looks to pick up, a second season opens up a lot of possibilities, including plenty of new characters.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ airs in the U.S. on Tuesdays on El Rey Network and drops on Netflix internationally the following day.

It was slow moving, but solid - got pretty gory/thrilling in the last few episodes. Solid show, glad they're going to expand on the story

The only person I have ever say anything good about this show is "VALORSOLO" the guy who posted here before me. Now keeping that in mind, HOW THE HELL DID THIS GET A SECOND SEASON!!! Oh of course, if you own your own network you can give your self the green light no matter how dismal the show is. And this is definitely a dismal show.

Cool. I like the series so far. It's nice knowing it'll be around for at least two seasons.
