It's taken them a little while to do so, but NBC has finally granted the supernatural drama Midnight, Texas a second season.
According to Deadline, the renewal came with new showrunners—Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder (both of whom were consulting producers on the first season) will succeed Monica Owusu-Breen, who was in charge of the first season and also wrote the pilot. Breen is reportedly leaving to "focus on other projects."
In addition to the change in leadership, the cast of the show will shrink. Sarah Ramos (Creek Lovell) and Yul Vazquez (Reverend Sheerhan) will no longer be series regulars, but according to Deadline there is hope for them to return as guest stars.
The show stars Francois Arnaud, Arielle Kebbel, and Dylan Bruce. It is based on books by Charlaine Harris, who also penned the series behind HBO's True Blood. A twist on True Blood's town of Bon Temps, Midnight is a mysterious haven for anyone and everyone looking to hide from the outside world. Charlaine Harris is quoted as saying that she is "stoked" at the prospect of another season, and remarked that "the viewers, who've been asking me questions daily, will have their reward." There is no news yet as to when the new season will debut.
