El Rey’s runaway hit ‘From Dusk Till Dawn‘ is going to be coming back for a third season as the studio and Miramax have just renewed the series. Good thing too as the Season Two finale is going to drop tonight at 9pm ET and I expect a full on cliffhanger when it reaches its conclusion. The show has revolved around the Gecko brothers, Seth and Richie, which will continue in the third season as they continue fighting the culebra underworld.
Series creator Robert Rodriguez can barely keep his cool as he says:
“I’m so friggin excited that we are moving forward with another season of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: the Series. This show has a passionate following, and I just love making it and directing episodes. We have a killer cast and the characters have gotten even more layered and magnetic and I can’t wait to take this story even further.”
Zanne Devine, Miramax’s EVP of Film & TV adds:
“Renewing the show for a third season seemed only natural given the tremendous team involved, led of course by Robert Rodriguez, Carlos Coto, our stellar cast, and our fascinating ‘Dusk’ universe that is like a never-ending well for unique storytelling.”
While tonight we’ll see how the brothers go up against Lord Malvado and The Regulator pans out for them, there is still no word as to what we may see in the third season past their ongoing fight with the supernatural underworld that has turned their lives into a living hell. It will be fun to watch who lives for the third season and which characters end up off the show for good.
