NBC has renewed Midnight, Texas for a second season
Midnight, Texas has been renewed for a second season by NBC. The show was the #1 summer broadcast drama in the 18-49 demographic. The show is based on the best-selling book by Charlaine Harris, who also wrote the novels that inspired the HBO series True Blood.
Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who served as consulting producers on the first season and have an overall deal with Universal Television, will be showrunners for season two and will executive produce along with David Janollari. The series is produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
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.
“I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of ‘Midnight, Texas,'” Harris said. “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 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.
