From Dusk Till Dawn has some new company. Deadline reports Nicky Whelan and Maurice Compte have been cast in season three of the El Rey Network series.
The drama is based on the 1996 film of the same name and stars DJ Cotrona and Zane Holtz as Seth and Richie Gecko, two criminal brothers wanted by the government.
According to Deadline, “Compte will play Brassa, a mysterious, Rasputin-like figure who takes on the outlaw Gecko brothers” while Whelan’s character has yet to be revealed. The two join new season three cast members Ana de la Reguera, Marko Zaror, and Tom Savini.
Here’s a description of the new season, via El Rey:
Season three 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 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.”
Season three premieres this fall on El Rey Network.
