Our distribution partnerships have allowed us to broaden the reach of this anchor series and give fans the perfect opportunity to catch up before season two hits the air next year."

Robert Rodriguez, El Rey Network founder and series creator, added: "Being able to revisit the world of 'Dusk' and expand on the story and characters from the film was incredibly gratifying and I am thrilled that our fans across the globe will have the opportunity to experience that world through our relationship with Miramax." Rodriguez explained. "I look forward to creating an unexpected and compelling narrative for our characters in season two and giving our fans the kind of content they have come to expect from El Rey."
