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.
