NBC will bring back the drama series that the network says was the No. 1 broadcast drama of the summer in the key demo of adults 18-49. The supernatural thriller “Midnight, Texas” will return for a second season.
Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who were 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,” NBC says in an announcement about the renewal. “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.’
NBC adds that the series “ran undefeated in its 10 p.m. Monday timeslot versus its regular ABC and CBS competition in 18-49.”
