After months of production in and around Albuquerque, Miramax and El Rey Network announced that the third-season premiere of Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” will take place on Sept. 6.

The 10 new, action-packed, horror-filled episodes follow the Gecko brothers into the vortex of the culebra underworld, as they are forced to assemble an unlikely crew to battle new enemies determined to take them down.

Rodriguez brought production to New Mexico for the incentives.

According to the N.M. Film Office, the production employed about 250 New Mexico crew members and 75 New Mexico background talent for each episode.

The production began principal photography in mid-March and wrapped up at the end of June.

Season three 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.

Rodriguez, El Rey Network’s founder and chairman and the creator of the 1995 cult-classic film of the same name, directs the season’s second episode; additional returning directors include Dwight Little, Alejandro Brugués, Eduardo Sanchez, Joe Menendez. Newcomers Eagle Egilsson, Rebecca Rodriguez and Diego Gutierrez will also direct.

During the new season, the Gecko brothers will fight their way through the chilling world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico.

The El Rey Network is available in New Mexico on Comcast, DirecTV, Dish Network and Sling TV.
