Spun off from Robert Rodriguez’s cult classic film franchise, Season One of Miramax/El Rey Network’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother Richard "Richie" Gecko (Zane Holtz). On the lam to Mexico, they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, whom they took hostage in the family RV. Following an ill-advised detour to the culebra-infested Titty Twister, they were forced to fight until dawn to get out alive.
Across 10 explosive, SFX-filled episodes in FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES - THE COMPLETE SEASON TWO, core relationships deepen and become more complicated as everyone tries to put their lives back on track after one very insane day. Santanico and Richie are now partners in crime, resembling a more modern version of Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate are scraping by as small time criminals south of the border; and Freddie Gonzalez has an almost obsessive focus on protecting his wife and young daughter in the suburbs. Carlos Madrigal and Scott Fuller emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again - this time facing off against an even bigger threat.
SEASON TWO co-stars include Danny Trejo, who appeared in the original movie as Razor Charlie and Esai Morales currently a series regular on "The Brink." Trejo plays The Regulator, a horrifying agent of evil summoned to perform a deadly errand, and Morales appears in the role of Lord Amancio Malvado, a figure of terrifying cruelty and power who has a complicated and obsessive relationship with Santanico. Jake Busey and Demi Lovato also make guest starring appearances.
