The supernatural thriller will return for a second season.
February 14, 2018
NBC announced today that Midnight, Texas has been picked up for Season 2. The supernatural drama premiered last July for a 10-episode summer stint that, while ultimately garnering mixed reviews, did draw solid viewership numbers for the network over the course of its run.
A few changes are in store for the series going forward. Original showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen is moving on to other projects, thus making way for a new showrunning team of Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who have already worked on the show as consulting producers. Also, Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez will not be returning as series regulars. The two original cast members may however still make guest-starring appearances.
Based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris, Midnight, Texas is a remote town that sits on a veil between the living and hell, and nothing is what it seems. It is a place where outsiders fit in and being normal is considered strange. As members of the town fight off pressures from ever-suspicious outsiders ranging from cops to biker gangs, they band together to form an unlikely, yet strong, family.
It is not yet clear when Midnight, Texas will return for Season 2. While NBC could opt to move the show into its regular fall lineup, it will more than likely remain as summer fare in 2019.

I can only conclude, production costs for this steaming pile was low enough to let it continue to stink?

Seriously, there's a season 2 to this? Wow.

Glad to hear it's renewed. Not all that worried about the Creek character. She was only in the first book anyway. The Rev is the one I'm more concerned about. The actor playing him isn't returning either so I'm not sure what they are going to do there.

What happened to the Creek character? I guess I could go back and watched the last episode but I am drawing a blank (not a good sign)

@James: Creek is Manfred's muse. Unless they write-in a new romance for him, I don't see the show working with him at its forefront. Even if they do, most of the book followers won't watch since they'll have added a character not in the books. Plus throw in no harbinger in the rev and the loss of the dynamic brought in by the ware- character.....

@michael dobey -- The reason it seems that way is a lot networks will toss the first season of a show on Netflix and Amazon and see how it does there befroe deciding. Especially if the show is on the bubble of cancellation.

Not sure I like this show or dislike it, I could go either way. It just doe snot feel like something I can get into. The characters and the show just doesn't seem to click and feels really forced and disjointed. I probably wont watch Season 2.

I'm surprised but glad. I liked it partially because the story wrapped and left it open to season 2. I appreciate showrunners that do that.
