From Dusk Till Dawn Casting Update; Tom Savini Returns to the Franchise!


The third season of El Rey Network’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is currently in production over in New Mexico, and it’s set to begin airing later this year. On tap today is the latest casting news for the series, revealing the return of one actor and the addition of three others. Read on for the update!

As announced via press release, Ana de la Reguera (“Jane the Virgin”) will have a recurring role in Season 3 as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords whose ancient roots and personal history put them at the center of an epic clash between good and evil. Also joining the cast is Chilean martial arts action star Marko Zaror (Machete Kills) as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in hell.

Most exciting of all, iconic horror movie maven Tom Savini (Friday the 13th, From Dusk Till Dawn) has come aboard. Savini, who starred as Sex Machine in the original film, lights up the brand new role of Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells.

Returning to the supernatural action horror saga is Emily Rios (“The Bridge,” “Breaking Bad”) who will reprise her Season 2 role as Ximena, the no-nonsense lieutenant of Lord Venganza.

Comprised of ten hour-long episodes, Season 3 of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” will feature a returning ensemble cast that includes: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, and Jake Busey. Filmmaker and El Rey Network founder Robert Rodriguez will return to direct select episodes this season.

Season 3 continues the Gecko Brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the Border two years ago to save their lives – and their fortune. They ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess Santánico. The Geckos joined her cause and settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now, that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering – dark forces, hell-bent on destruction and domination. It’s up to the Geckos to stop them – but they can’t do it alone.
