With 2018 ending in a few days, MIDNIGHT, TEXAS won’t be joining us next year.
Sadly, just a few days after its penultimate Season 2 episode, Midnight, Texas got the axe by NBC, who announced its cancellation along with Marlon Wayan’s Marlon comedy.
What’s surprising is that this most recent episode marked a season high in ratings for the series. The show that followed the lives of the vampires, witches, angels, and other beings in a small town in the middle of nowhere debuted in summer 2017, based on the popular book series by True Blood author Charlaine Harris.
But when the original showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen left as showrunner after season 1, the show came back for a second run,but ratings never got back up to where they used to be during the first season.
So, next week’s season 2 finale will now become the show’s series finale. Midnight, Texas is reportedly shopping around for any other potential networks by Universal Television *Note:* Hulu currently has the streaming rights.
And as it goes with most show ending or cancellation, the cast took to social media to express their thoughts about the sun setting on Midnight, Texas.
You gave us an amazing season 2. Thank you to our incredibly loyal fans and to everyone who supported us along the way. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Olivia… Best cast. Best writers and producers. Best memories. So grateful for this experience – Arielle Kebbel
Parisa Fitz-Henley, who plays Fiji on the series, also wrote a note on Twitter to the Midnight Fam.
