A great series which ended too soon
Based on the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN movie from 1996. And it went for 3 seasons but it stopped.
This is not a sequel to the film but rather a remake in television series form featuring the same characters from the movie.
The vampire mythology has been changed from the movie and has been expanded on more in the television show.
The first season was great. Very familiar to the movie but with a lot of differences. I thought the second series went downhill a bit. It was entertaining enough and fun to watch but it did seem to drag on for a few episodes. Thankfully the third season picked the pace back up. It seemed rushed but it was back on track. Even though it ended they did leave it open in a way that they could do another season down the track.
I do not know why they stopped making the series. A lot of people were angry when they found out it wasn't renewed. It was the most popular show on that channel at the time. But oh well, sometimes things must come to an end.
Everyone who was cast did an AMAZING job. I hope one day they all work together again as the chemistry they had was great.
The show wasn't as violent as the movie but like the movie there was some well written dialogue and humour throughout.
I highly recommend this show if you were a fan of the movies or if you like vampire related shows in general. Even if you are not a fan of such a genre, it is still worth checking out.
Hopefully we will get something else set in the world of From Dusk Till Dawn again one day
