Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

NBC has renewed its supernatural summer show “Midnight, Texas” for a second season, the network announced Wednesday.

The thriller, based on the book series by Charlaine Harris, takes place in a remote Texas town that serves as a safe haven for anyone wanting to hide from the rest of the 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.”

Season 1 consulting producers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder will be showrunners on the new season as part of their overall deal with Universal Television. They will also executive produce, along with David Janollari.

François Arnaud plays the psychic Manfred, Dylan Bruce plays the town’s pawn shop owner Bobo, Parisa Fitz-Henley plays the local witch Fiji, Arielle Kebbel plays Olivia the assassin, Jason Lewis plays angel Joe, and Peter Mensah plays vampire Lemuel. Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez–who play Creek Lovell and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, respectively–won’t be returning as series regulars, but there’s a chance to see them in Season 2 as guests reprising their roles.

“Midnight, Texas” is produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
