NBC has released a promo for the second season of its supernatural drama series Midnight, Texas, from Niels Arden Oplev, the visionary director of “Mr. Robot,” Based on the hit book series from author Charlaine Harris (the author of “True Blood”), the show is set in a remote Texas town called Midnight, where “no one is who they seem,” according to the official synopsis. “From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family.” the synopsis reveals.
The cast includes Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, François Arnaud, Arielle Kebbel, Peter Mensah, Jason Lewis, Sarah Ramos and Yul Vázquez.
“People don’t just settle at Midnight. They come here when they’re running from someone or they got something to hide,” Arielle Kebbel’s character, assassin Olivia, tells Arnaud’s character, Manfred the psychic, the newest town resident.
Fitz-Henley is seen in her role as sweet witch Fiji, Mensah as the vampire Lemuel, Bruce as the pawn shop owner with a past Bobo, and Lewis as angelic Joe Strong. At the end of the first season, a company had bought the town’s old hotel and was going to renovate it to make Midnight a tourist destination. The new hotel, which will also be a sort of New Age healing center, will be called Crystal Desert and will be run by two new characters this season: a mysterious couple consisting of holistic energy healer Kai (Nestor Carbonell) and his wife, Patience (Jaime Ray Newman).
The trailer, set to Nineoneone’s “Judgement Day”, features, among others, Manfred stalking though the town at night with weapons in hand. He has nightmares in which he’s hurting his friends.
