We have the full details below.
From the Press Release:
Entertainment One (eOne), Miramax, and El Rey Network today announced that the complete premiere episode of Season 3 of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” will be available for free Digital HD preview two weeks prior to its September 6, 2016, broadcast debut on El Rey Network. For fans eagerly anticipating the action-packed, horror-filled new season and newbies interested in sampling the series based on the cult film directed by Robert Rodriguez, Episode 3.01, “Head Games,” will be available at no charge from August 23rd to September 6th on iTunes, GooglePlay, Xbox Video, Sony PlayStation, Fandango Now, and Vudu.
Season 3 of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” continues the Gecko brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the chilling world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. The 10 new episodes — two of which premiere back-to-back on September 6th at 9pm and 10pm ET — follow Seth and Richie into the vortex of a culebra underworld on the verge of a violent explosion.
In the Season 3 premiere, the Geckos have been demoted to “collectors” while their organization has been infiltrated by a mysterious new enemy hell-bent on destroying them, the Lords, and all culebras. On September 7th, the day following its two-episode broadcast premiere, both episodes will be available to purchase via all leading Digital HD outlets.
Season 3 features a returning ensemble cast including D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Eiza González, Jesse Garcia, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo, Emily Rios, and Jake Busey. New cast joining the third season are Ana de la Reguera, who will have a recurring role as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords; Marko Zaror as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in Hell; Tom Savini as Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells; Maurice Compte as Brasa, a mysterious Rasputin-like figure who takes on the Gecko brothers; and Nicky Whelan, whose character will be revealed during the season.
