NBC wants more of Midnight, Texas and has officially given the supernatural series an order for a second season. The thriller, which is based on the book series by Charlaine Harris (True Blood), debuted in the summer of 2017 as the #1 new summer drama among viewers ages 18-49. According to NBC, Midnight, Texas was undefeated in its Monday at 10pm time slot versus ABC and CBS shows.
The network also announced the second season of Midnight, Texas will have new showrunners guiding the story. Season one’s consulting producers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder have taken on the job of being showrunners for season two. They’ll also executive produce with David Janollari.
“I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of Midnight, Texas,” said author Charlaine Harris. “I can’t wait to revisit my favorite town to discover what its inhabitants have been up to the past few months. Now the viewers, who’ve been asking me questions daily, will have their reward.”
The Season One Plot, Cast and Characters: The supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. In Midnight, Texas, being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. It’s a mysterious safe haven for those who are different — a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.
The series stars François Arnaud (The Borgias) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of the town’s local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, Orphan Black); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, Luke Cage); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, Ballers); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets, having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, Sex and the City); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, True Blood); and others.
