Netflix To Bring Western Vampires to the World With 'From Dusk Till Dawn: A Netflix Original Series'

Robert Rodriguez’s television adaptation of his vampire-western cult film “From Dusk Till Dawn” hits the small screen soon, and now international fans will have a chance to watch alongside their friends in the U.S.

Netflix has announced that “From Dusk Till Dawn: A Netflix Original Series” will be available via their streaming service soon after the show’s debut on the El Rey Network on March 11. New hour-long episodes will hit Netflix in Europe and Canada within 24 hours of its U.S. broadcast, while the series will be available in Latin America every week after its March 19 premiere.

The show re-imagines the film’s story of the Fuller family, who are kidnapped by the Gecko Brothers and forced to drive their RV over the Mexican border. When all seems clear, the group waits the night out at a bar, only to find that it’s run by vampires.

D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz fill in for George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, respectively, as the Geckos, while Robert Patrick steps in Harvey Keitel’s shoes as Jacob, the head of the Fuller family, and Don Johnson takes over recurring Tarantino/Rodriguez character Earl McGraw from Michael Parks. Other cast members include Jake Busey, Eiza Gonzalez and Wilmer Valderrama.

The series premieres on March 11 at 9 PM ET/PT, and on Netflix for European and Canadian audiences on March 12.
