Midnight, Texas Cast: Who’s in it?

Midnight, Texas Plot: What is it about?

In Midnight, Texas the titular town is remote and no one is quite who they seem. Vampires, witches, psychics and angels gather together in the safe haven, fighting off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, banding together to form a strong and unlikely family. We see Arnaud’s Manfred defeating the demon Colcannar, who threatened to obliterate the veil separating the supernatural world from ours. Though the victory saved the day, the quirky desert town was soon hit with another invasion: developers, who looked to turn the supernatural hideout into a tourist mecca.

“I am stoked at the prospect of the second season of Midnight, Texas,” Harris said in a statement before the launch of season 2. “I can’t wait to revisit my favourite 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.” It would have been exciting to see which direction the series would take in its next season but alas! it is cancelled and we will probably never know.

Midnight, Texas Season 3 Release Date: Canceled or Renewed?

The first season ended up being the NBC network’s top-rated summer drama in the year 2017. The show had been off the air since mid-September 2017 with no word on whether or not the series would come back for another run. It took them a little while to do so, a period of five months, but NBC finally granted the supernatural drama Midnight, Texas, a second season. On February 14, 2018, NBC renewed the series for a second season. At Comic-Con, it was confirmed that Midnight, Texas Season 2 would be coming back and the 9-episode sophomore series premiered on Oct. 26, 2018, just in time for Halloween, on NBC. Season 2 might just have been the last we saw of Midnight, Texas unless it is shopped to other outlets which, if rumour has it, is exactly what NBC’s parent company, Universal, is up to as of now. Whether it was the 5-month gap that contributed to the drop in ratings and eventual cancellation or the change in the slot, or both, we don’t know but as of date, Midnight, Texas stands cancelled. The air date of its last episode was December 28, 2018.
