“FROM DUSK” will dawn again for second TV seasonMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Only a few weeks into its first season, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES has been greenlighted to return for a second round of episodes.
Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network announced today that the encore season of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN will consist of 13 hour-long episodes, expanded from the 10-installment first season. They will be lensed once again on Rodriguez’s home turf of Austin, TX, and while specific story details haven’t been revealed, the filmmaker (who directed four of the initial round) says, “This is a truly unique property and one that has really resonated for viewers. 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.”
Adds El Rey’s vice chair Scott Sassa, “Our decision to launch this ambitious original in just our first few months on the air was certainly bold but the payoff has been incredibly satisfying. As the television landscape becomes even more crowded, it’s important for El Rey Network to have a recurring and memorable franchise that speaks to our audience and allows us to break away from the noise of all the competition. FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES is most certainly that kind of property and we are thrilled with the response from our affiliate partners, advertisers, viewers and the international community.”
