Marco Rodriguez will be part of the main cast for Blumhouse TV’s Season 2 finale and twenty-fourth installment of the anthology on Hulu Into The Dark, “Blood Moon”, set to premiere March 28, 2021.
The lead actors for “Blood Moon” are Megalyn Echikunwoke and Yonas Kibreab. Among the main supporting cast alongside Rodriguez, feature Joshua Dov, Jack Yang, and Gareth Williams.

Blood Moon follows mother Esme (Echikunwoke) and her ten-year-old son Luna (Kibreab), as they settle in a small desert town, looking forward to a fresh start.
