Exclusive look at the Culebras in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series
With the second season of El Rey Network/Miramax‘s supernatural crime saga “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” premiering on Tuesday, August 25th at 9 p.m., ComingSoon.net has an exclusive look at the series with showrunner and executive producer Carlos Coto explaining what Culebras are. Check out the video, in which Carlos walks you through what exactly is a culebra and how it thrives, below.
With 10 all-new, action-packed hour-long episodes, season two of the horror/crime drama delves into a new and unexpected chapter for the characters after a night at the Titty Twister ripped apart everything they knew about themselves, each other and their souls. Returning cast members D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Eiza González, Wilmer Valderrama, Madison Davenport, Brandon Soo Hoo and guest star Jake Busey are joined in the show’s sophomore season by Danny Trejo as “The Regulator,” Esai Morales as “Lord Amancio Malvado;” Jeff Fahey as “Uncle Eddie Cruickshank,” and Briana Evigan as “Sonja Lam.”
Robert Rodriguez, El Rey Network’s founder and chairman and creator of the 1995 cult-classic film of the same name, directs the season premiere and finale; additional directors include showrunner Carlos Coto, Eduardo Sanchez, Alejandro Brugués, Joe Menendez, and Dwight Little.
Season one of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” centered on bank robber Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko, who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller and his family, and took them hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.
In Season Two, the show travels between Mexico and the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and new dynamics. Our characters are all living in very separate worlds –Santánico and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez is 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.
