From Dusk Til Dawn TV Series Trailer
Don Johnson straddles chaos and order

Quentin Tarantino is reportedly moving onto pastures new with Hateful Eight, but there's still life in his back catalogue. QT's frequent co-conspirator Robert Rodriguez has revisited the site of one of their early joint successes, and the result is the TV series expansion of From Dusk Til Dawn, shortly to make its debut on Rodriguez's El Rey cable network.

Yup, that is Don Johnson as Sheriff Earl McGraw, the role previously inhabited by Michael Parks. Replacing Tarantino and George Clooney as the Gecko Brothers are Zane Holtz and D. J. Cotrona. Jesse Garcia plays a new role: that of Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez. Robert Patrick is in the Harvey Keitel role of preacher Jack Fuller, with Madison Davenport and Brandon Soo Hoo as his kids. And Eiza Gonzalez takes over from Salma Hayek (and Ara Celi) as the awe-inspiring Santanico Pandemonium.

Straight to video sequel Texas Blood Money and prequel The Hangman's Daughter have already demonstrated the potential for expanding From Dusk Til Dawn's vampiric mythology, but for the time being the TV series seems content with old ground: going back over the narrative of the original film.

Don't expect it to stay that way, however. "The film was the short story, this series is the novel,” Rodriguez said over the weekend. “We had a blast making this a rich experience that feels like it can go on and on for seasons.”

From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series arrives on El Rey on March 11.
