Season 2 of El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn television adaptation comes to a close tonight, and on the heels of its season three announcement too! El Rey has been generous enough to offer up some prizes for a special giveaway to celebrate the occasion!
I’ll be the first to admit that I was a little underwhelmed with the show’s first season. It was little more than the 1996 film stretched out into 10 episodes with some additional mythology thrown in for good measure. The second season has been a huge improvement over the lackluster first season. No longer constricted by the script of the film, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series has benefited greatly from the creative freedom now afforded it. It has a more playful tone to it, yet it has a much more cohesive narrative than, say, True Blood. If the first nine episodes of the second season are anything to go by, we are in for a real treat with the finale airing tonight. You can now consider me a loyal viewer, which isn’t something I would have been able to say last year.
One Grand Prize winner will win the first and second season on iTunes! In addition, five lucky winners will win From Dusk Till Dawn character cards signed by Robert Rodriguez himself! To enter, email your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS to firstname.lastname@example.org (no PO Boxes and addresses must be US only) with the subject “FROM DUSK TILL DAWN GIVEAWAY”. All entries must be submitted by 10pm ET/9pm CT on Wednesday October 28th. The winners will be selected at random and notified via email.

In Season Two of El Rey Network and Miramax’s® supernatural crime saga, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” 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.

Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (Wind Walkers, Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, “Sons of Anarchy”); Eiza González (True Love); Wilmer Valderrama (“That ‘70s Show,” To Whom It May Concern); Madison Davenport (“Noah,” “Shameless”); Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) and guest star Jake Busey (Motorcycle Gang, Contract) are joined in the show’s sophomore season by Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills) as “The Regulator;” Esai Morales (“Criminal Minds,” “NYPD Blue”) as “Lord Amancio Malvado;” Jeff Fahey (“Lost,” “Justified,” “Texas Rising”) as “Uncle Eddie Cruickshank” and Briana Evigan (Step Up 2) as “Sonja Lam”.
