NBC Renews Midnight, Texas for Season 2

02.15.2018

The long, scorching wait is over! Midnight, Texas has officially been renewed for a second season. However, the renewal comes with some major changes. Consulting producers, Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, will serve as the new showrunners and executive producers for the second season. Additionally, two cast members, Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez (who portrayed Creek and the Rev, respectively), will not be coming back as series regulars. Though there is still hope for them to return as guest stars. So excited and looking forward to another amazing season!

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Feb. 14, 2018 — “Midnight, Texas,” the #1 summer broadcast drama in the 18-49 demo, has been renewed for a second season on NBC.

Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who served as consulting producers on the first season and have an overall deal with Universal Television, will be showrunners for season two and will executive produce along with David Janollari. The series is produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.

The supernatural thriller, which is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”), takes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. In Midnight, Texas, being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. It’s a mysterious safe haven for those who are different — a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.

“I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of ‘Midnight, Texas,’” Harris said. “I can’t wait to revisit my favorite town to discover what its inhabitants have been up to the past few months. Now the viewers, who’ve been asking me questions daily, will have their reward.”

The series stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of the town’s local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke Cage”); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, “Ballers”); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets, having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, “True Blood”); and others.

In praising “Midnight, Texas” last summer, USA Today said the series was “a genuinely fun summer diversion” while the Los Angeles Times added the show was “a charming new take on spooky old stories, with enough magic to keep even cynical viewers engaged.”

“Midnight, Texas” was last summer’s #1 drama on the broadcast networks in the key 18-49 demographic. “Midnight, Texas” ran undefeated in its 10 p.m. Monday timeslot versus its regular ABC and CBS competition in 18-49.

For now, here’s a short description on François character:

TOMMY | (Arnaud), “a charming and ambitious game producer who has been plucked out of basic cable and given a shot at the big leagues.”
