Midnight, Texas, the NBC series adapted from the novels of Charlaine Harris, has been renewed for a second season according to TVLine. Returning for their sophmore season will be series regulars François Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel and Jason Lewis. Not expected to return are Yul Vazquez, who played Rev. Emilio Sheehan, and Sarah Ramos, who played Creek.
Season one showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen is moving on and will be replaced by Nicole Snyder and Eric Charmelo who were consulting producers in season one. They will also executive produce with returning EP David Janollari.
Harris said via a statement:
I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of Midnight, Texas. 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 first season ended with Manfred taking down the demon Colcannar who was trying to break through the veil separating the supernatural world from the regular world. The town was saved but only for a short time as a plague of developers moved in quickly, looking to turn the supernatural haven into a tourist attraction. The shows season finale did fairly well pulling in an overall audience of 2.78 million and a 0.8 in the 18-49 demo.
