Midnight Texas Season Two

April 2018

NBC has given a second-season renewal to supernatural drama Midnight, Texas. Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who served as consulting producers on Season 1, have been named executive producers and showrunners.

 

Additionally, two cast members from Season 1 — Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez — will not be coming back as series regulars. Midnight, Texas, starring François Arnaud, is based on the books by author Charlaine Harris, who already has one hit supernatural drama series based on her novels to her credit — HBO’s True Blood. Midnight Texas ranked as the No. 1 broadcast drama series last summer in adults 18-49 years old.

 

Midnight, Texas 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 cast includes Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Jason Lewis and Peter Mensah. Charmelo and Nicole Snyder will executive produce with Janollari.
