A From Dusk Till Dawn Community
Tuesday 9:00 PM on El Rey Network


In the words of TV.com's own Tim Surette, "Wowza, that was quick." After only three episodes, Robert Rodriquez's El Rey Network has renewed its first original scripted series From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series for Season 2. Based on the 1996 cult film written by Quentin Tarantino, the new series was adapted for television by Rodriquez (who also directed the film) and Carlos Coto (Nikita, 24). The second season will be slightly longer than the first, expanding from 10 episodes to the more standard (on cable, anyway) count of 13.

The early renewal is surprising, but it's likely the result of a number of factors, like the fact that From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series offers a different take on the vampire genre, which has definitely reached a saturation point with regard to focusing on paranormal romances instead of inspiring fear in viewers' hearts. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series knows its limits and it relishes campiness. But El Rey is also a very young network, having only launched in 2013, and Rodriquez needed a series to anchor it. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which came with a built-in audience in the form of fans of the original film and its subsequent straight-to-DVD sequels, makes a good argument for being that anchor. The show also has a deal with Netflix, which distributes it through a run-of-series license in Canada, Ireland, Nordics, Netherlands, the U.K., and Latin America.

This show is amazing. So much better then the movie. Any sane person will actually love the recasting no matter how much they liked the original cast.

I watched ep 5 tonight & it was pretty damn fun. the 1st season is half over & we are officially at the front door of the Titty Twister (Ahh, good times. Good Times)
Ayhoo, I'm not saying we should get weekly staff reviews or anything, but I gotta ask: Who's gotta blow who around here in order to at least mention the show the night it airs? I'm not talkin' a spotlight blurb every week...I'm simply talking about a simple listing on air night. The show could use (& deserves) every little ounce of exposure it can get

I am not too sure about this series I know its unfair to compare this to the film as each of them stand up on their own, the problem I have with this show is the lead actor who plays Seth. He's a good actor but he doesn't make that part his own, I mean George Clooney made that part more charismatic and entertaining then as Seth.
I don't expect Clooney to do this I mean its not going to happen but the problem is this actor he just doesn't convince me. Its a shame the rest of the show is great cast fantastic , storyline great and the mix with styles good. I keep watching till the end of the season to see if it picks up but if not I rather watch Supernatural.

Its very fair to compare them! And it compares perfectly. I love the series even more then i love the movies. Its got the same hold your breath waiting for the next thing, but its got more depth. I love the Mesoamerican mythology cleverly woven into the story. and I LOVE Carlos.

Have watched all 3 of the episodes released so far on Netflix UK. Enjoying it a lot - loved the original film and really like the expansion of the mythology and character building they're doing. Took me a while to work out the Latino vamp is the dude from That 70's Show - it was only when he moved his head in a certain distinctive way that I recognized him!

planning on watching ep3 tonight and have enjoyed the prior two a fair amount. so far I'm liking the brothers gecko and the T100o family. it certainly isn't the vampires we've come to know in that like the film and the series the vamps be evil. and there appears to be other evils as well. I'm digging it. a r-rated version would certainly be preferred but that's the extent of my complaints.

I'm watching the show but it's taking time for everything to come together, so far it's drawing out the mystery stuff too much and not giving us enough answers, just alot of questions. I think it has potential to be good but the slow burn is frustrating.

I'm loving this show so far! I don't remember much of the movie so it wasn't a favorite but I'm enjoying this tv series.

I have watched three episodes now and still I don't have a clue what it is about. I see two guys of which one is mentally ill, one guy with fangs like a snake but he can't have sun on his skin and drinks blood, one former priest with two kids and a policeman trying to find the two guys.
May be I should have watched the movie......

As others have said, a renewal seemed obvious. Not only because of El Rey being Rodriquez's network, but as we saw with Bates Motel on A&E last season, making a television spin-off of a cult film as the first original series on a network pretty much guarantees that because there is no precedent as to how well they should do, that a renewal seemed very likely. They pre-existing fan-base helps too.

I absolutely loved the pilot, but the last two episodes have left me a little disappointed after it. I'm really interested to see where they take the events that occurred in the film, and thus far they're going too slow for my taste. It seems like the events of the first season will cover the events of the film (well, at least I hope it does, if they drag it out any longer, I may have to re-consider watching it).

They've also been insistent on inserting several superfluous characters. I was fine with addition of Freddie as the series' protagonist, but he seems useless since the first episode. Now they've given Seth a wife, and introduced a exposition-spilling professor (although it remains to be seen whether or not he'll return). And the storyline they've given the Patrick's is instantly tiring.

On the positives though, the series has a rick mythology that I hope they continue to explore, and as someone else mentioned, the series does give off the impression that it knows where it is going, despite it's slowness early on(although that could be an allusion).

Plus, does anyone else think the series is shot amazing well? I'm not usually one to harp on about direction or cinematography because I find it all a bit pretentious, but seriously, this show seems to excel on setting colour, design, and shape to set up beautiful mise en scenes. Pretty much every second shot I want to make my screensaver.

Anyway, here's hoping the series lives up to its potential.

So far I've only seen the first episode but I'll definitely be returning for the second. Heck, I'd be returning even if there were no vampires, the story so far's been interesting.

I found I was bored with the first ep. didn't look any further.

I kinda felt like this was an obvious renewal... not because of the quality or anything, but because it's Robert Rodriguez's show on Robert Rodriguez's channel. Sure, there are other people involved on both sides, but still... they're both his, right?

Anyway, I have no opinion on the renewal. I continue to watch the show but I'm not sure how much I'm liking it. The acting has been fine enough, but the writing has been a bit up and down. I'll likely watch the rest of this season, then determine if I'll be back for 2.

This show is surprisingly entertaining. When it was first announced I was suspecting it would be a dud but it's well structured and, unlike a lot of shows these days - especially on the big 4 -, From Dusk Till Dawn actually feels like it's been well planned out, the writers know exactly what story they are telling and why. This is definitely a win for the El Rey Network.

It would have been pretty embarrassing if Rodriquez had had to cancel his own show. I guess the negotiations are simple when you are the executive producer of a show and the owner of the network that airs it.

That is a very good idea. without Tarantino, Rodriguez looks stale.

I just watched the pilot last night. Not bad, it was entertaining. As soon OUAT ends for the season, i'll watch the rest.

i was suprisingly happy with the show! still adjusting to FEZ as a reptile/shapeshifter/drugdealer/philosopher/murderer/vampire (and to the T-1000 as a clergyman/family father) but it is highly enjoyable! and it sure is nice to see some none-romantic vamps. glad to see it renewed :)
