"From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is a television drama on El Rey Network that is a supernatural crime saga, based on the cult classic film of the same name.

The series is centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (DJ Cotrona, "Dear John," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation") and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard "Richie" Gecko (Zane Holtz, "Holes," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson, "Django Unchained," "Nash Bridges") and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia, "Quinceañera," "Sons of Anarchy") after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "The X-Files") and his family — daughter Kate Fuller (Madison Davenport, "Save Me," "Shameless") and son Scott Fuller (Brandon Soo Hoo, "Tropic Thunder," "Ender's Game," "Incredible Crew") — whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires. They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone of the film, adds new characters and backstories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

The cast also includes Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation") as Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko's past; Lane Garrison ("Bonnie & Clyde," "Prison Break") as Pete, the clerk at Benny's World of Liquor which the Gecko brothers take over in the pilot; Jake Busey ("Starship Troopers," "Enemy of the State," "Identity") as Professor Aiden Tanner, an eccentric intellectual obsessed with the Mesoamerican mythology behind the vampires; and Eiza González ("Lola: Érase Una Vez") as Santánico Pandemonium, credited for launching Salma Hayek's film career.

Season 2

Season 2 explores a new chapter in this supernatural crime saga that expands the universe of our story across two borders from Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Season 2 begins with our characters in their separate worlds — Santánico and Richie are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal and Scott Fuller emerge from the Titty Twister, as changed men. They will all come together once again — this time facing off against an even bigger threat.

Season 3

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 they 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.
