FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “FROM DUSK TILL DAWN Day”

elreyLast year, we saw the debut of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25thFROM DUSK TILL DAWN Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community.” Mayor Adler also had the following to say: “We are proud to be home to Robert Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios, his incredible El Rey Network and of course, his iconic television original, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES which has achieved cult status here in Austin and around the globe. Thank you to Robert, the cast and the tremendously talented individuals who have brought this extraordinary story to life here in our own backyard. It is testament to our belief that Austin is a creative hub for talented filmmakers and visionaries who are inspired by what our city has to offer.”

Season two will bring 10 episodes, continuing the story of the Gecko brothers, who after going through vampiric hell at the Titty Twister bar, are left to face the aftermath of it all.

Returning to the show, are stars D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (Wind Walkers, Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, “Sons of Anarchy“); Eiza González (“Amores Verdaderos” (“True Love“)); Wilmer Valderrama (“That ’70s Show,” To Whom It May Concern); Madison Davenport (Noah,” “Shameless“); Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) and guest star Jake Busey (“Motorcycle Gang,” “Contact“) as “Sex Machine.”

They are joined in the sophomore season by Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills) as “The Regulator,” Esai Morales (“The Brink,” “Criminal Minds,” “NYPD Blue“) as “Lord Amancio Malvado,” Jeff Fahey (“Lost,” “Justified,” “Texas Rising“) as “Uncle Eddie Cruickshank,” Briana Evigan (Step Up 2) as “Sonja Lam” and a guest starring appearance by Demi Lovato.

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 (Gonzalez) and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Davenport) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in the suburbs. Carlos Madrigal (Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Soo Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.
