Midnight, Texas was last summer’s number one drama in the key 18-49 demographic among broadcast networks. NBC has finally decided the fate of the supernatural drama and it’s good new for fans. Midnight, Texas is returning for a sophomore run.
“I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of ‘Midnight, Texas,’” Charlaine 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.”
Adapted from the best-selling book trilogy by author Harris (True Blood), the NBC drama follows Manfred (The Borgias’ François Arnaud), a psychic capable of communicating with the dead. After relocating to the titular Texas town, he finds himself surrounded by both human and supernatural allies. Among its inhabitants: a witch (Luke Cage’s Parisa Fitz-Henley), an angel (Sex and the City’s Jason Lewis), a mysterious assassin (The Vampire Diaries’ Arielle Kebbel), a local pawn shop owner (Orphan Black‘s Dylan Bruce) and a reverend (Captain Phillips’ Yul Vazquez), who may or may not be a werewolf.
Reportedly, most of the cast will return with exception of Vazquez and Sarah Ramos. The latter, who played Manfred’s love interest, might return as a guest star.
Did you sample the series? I meant to, but never got around to it. Maybe I’ll binge-watch the first season right before Season 2 premieres.
