The supernatural thriller will end its run next week.
December 22, 2018
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled Midnight, Texas after two seasons. The news comes as the supernatural thriller winds down its sophomore run, with next week's episode on December 28 now acting as its series ender.
The show premiered in 2017 for a 10-episode summer stint that, while ultimately garnering mixed reviews, drew solid viewership numbers for the network. A number of changes were made in Season 2, including a move to the fall schedule, the departure of two original cast members, and a change of showrunners. But its momentum from Season 1 could not be maintained, as ratings have been softer this time around.
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.

This was a terrific show which, of course, is why they cancelled it. I was hooked before the first episode even ended and watched it every single week it was on. To end the show on a cliffhanger is just one of the worst things to do to fans. They need to at least do another episode to actually tie things up. It's been done for other shows, they need to do that for this one as well, at a minimum.

I was shocked and thrilled that it was renewed after its summer run so I, along with a few others, feel for once NBC did at least give the show a chance.
It's to bad they didn't keep it as a summer show. Scripted shows are harder to come by and therefore seem to do better in the summer. Even so, I'm not sure anything could save this show with the massive changes in season 2.

Well at least they wrapped up this storyline. But yeah , dumping characters left and right really made this last season not what it should be and it ended on a cliffhanger. I still wanted a new season though. And this guy who complained about suspending belief? lol. Most horror and fantasy including star wars are often silly in some way. And I still love it. But few horror shows ever last long on regular tv. Supernatural lasts because of it's two lead actors but few others. Netflix however can do a outstanding horror show like Sabrina and it does not matter as it's not on friday night.
