It’s a sad time for us, Midnighters. NBC has decided not to order a third season of Midnight, Texas. Next week’s finale will serve as the series finale.
DEADLINE – The current second season of NBC’s series Midnight, Texas will be its last. The network has opted not to order a third season of the supernatural drama based on the books by author Charlaine Harris. Producing studio Universal Television is shopping it to other outlets.
Midnight, Texas, from Universal TV and David Janollari Entertainment, started with a 10-episode first season, which aired in summer 2017, ranking as the No. 1 broadcast drama series of the summer among adults 18-49. The show was renewed for a nine-episode second season, which was moved in-season, debuting this past October. There was a change at the helm of the series heading into Season 2, with Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder becoming executive producers and showrunners, replacing Monica Owusu-Breen. Additionally, two cast members from Season 1 — Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez — did not come back as series regulars.
Season to date, Midnight, Texas, which aired Fridays at 9 PM until shifting to 8 PM last week, has averaged 2 million viewers and a 0.4 in 18-49 (Live+Same Day), which was down from the Season 1 average. Its Season 2 finale, which will be a series finale, airs next Friday.
