‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ TV Show Gets Second Season

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

From Dusk Till Dawn,” the first scripted series from director Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network, has received a 13-episode second season order.

“This is a truly unique property and one that has really resonated for viewers,” said Rodriguez, who created the series based on the 1996 movie he co-wrote with Quentin Tarantino. “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.”

Rodriguez directed four of the first season’s installments.

“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,” said Scott Sassa, El Rey Network’s Vice Chair. “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.”

The series is shot in Austin, Texas, home to the Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios.
