TVLine has shared some first look photos and details on some returning and upcoming shows, and we got our first image from the new season of Midnight, Texas. Glad to see the gang all together. Don’t miss the season premiere on October 26th!
When the “demonic cancer” François Arnaud teased at Comic-Con manifests at the start of the supernatural drama’s sophomore season, co-showrunner Nicole Snyder says, the medium will experience “maniacal, murderous urges, and the people bearing the brunt are his friends.” But don’t worry: There’s still time for pulpy fun in the spooky Texas town, where Snyder and co-showrunner Eric Charmelo promise a “soapier, sexier, scarier, more salacious” Season 2 in the vein of author Charlaine Harris’ other TV adaptation, True Blood. Along those lines: Olivia and her father will meet face-to-face again (but don’t expect a happy reunion); vampire Lem will undergo a “metamorphosis of sorts,” Charmelo notes; Bobo will become the proprietor of the Cartoon Saloon, a local watering hole that “feels a little bit like Merlotte’s,” Snyder previews; Fiji will learn more about her lineage via a major storyline involving witches; and newly arrived hoteliers Kai (Lost‘s Nestor Carbonell) and Patience (The Magicians‘ Jaime Ray Newman) won’t be universally embraced by the townsfolk — after all, “People get jealous easily in Midnight,” Snyder points out.
BONUS SPOILER!: Remember those spirits we saw in the hotel windows at the end of last season? “The nefarious activity that takes place in the hotel has very little to do with ghosts,” Snyder teases. Charmelo adds that a haunting would seem like a picnic compared to “what’s actually happening.”
