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.
