Rodriguez revealed that this From Dusk Till Dawn animated TV show “will follow in the footsteps of the live-action show and further explore the world of Aztec vampires.” This sounds so cool to me, and I can’t wait to see it.
From Dusk Till Dawn was released back in 1996 and it starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, and it’s a movie pretty much unlike any other. They did make a series that ran from 2014 to 2016.
A From Dusk Till Dawn animated TV show in the works
Here’s what Robert Rodriguez had to say about the animated From Dusk Till Dawn TV show during his recent interview with SFX Magazine:
Over here, I have my own television network [El Rey]. So I had a television network here. And I needed to create programming, so Quentin [Tarantino] and I still control the rights to it. So I went, ‘Oh, wow, I’d love to expand the story of Santánico Pandemonium, and the whole Aztec vampire lore for my network’.
And then internationally it was just put out as a Netflix original, I think is probably how you saw it. But here it was an original series for my television network, action television network called El Rey, which is, you know, the place they’re trying to get to at the end of Dusk till Dawn so it fits perfectly [laughs]. That was originally why we did it, so we did three seasons of that.
