Update (March 18th): Arielle Kebbel, who played Olivia Charity on Midnight, Texas, has recently landed the female lead role in the network’s new drama pilot, Lincoln. With Kebbel moving on to another show, it has become less likely that Midnight, Texas will be revived for another season.
Original article: Though NBC had already cancelled Midnight, Texas after two seasons last week, there’s still a chance that fans would see Manfred and the rest of Midnighters again.
According to TVLine, NBC’s parent company, Universal — which produced Midnight, Texas — will shop the show to other outlets. While it’s unclear if there’s any network or streaming service interested in saving the supernatural drama, some fans are particularly hoping that Amazon Prime Video would pick up the series for a third season.
Though the significant decline in the show’s ratings was likely the reason NBC didn’t renew the series for Season 3, the Peacock network did very little to help the ratings remain steady between the show’s freshman and sophomore runs. When Midnight, Texas premiered on July 24th, 2017, the François Arnaud-led series was hailed as the number one broadcast show in the summer for the 18 to 49-year-olds. But despite the show being a big hit in the summer, NBC waited for five months after the Season 1 finale before renewing the show for Season 2.
Because of the long delay between seasons as well as the show’s move to the Fridays-at-9 time slot, the second season opener only drew 1.9 million viewers and a 0.4 rating, well below its freshman average of 3 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. Despite the lower ratings, Midnight, Texas maintained those figures throughout the second season, proving that the show has a solid fanbase.
The consistent Season 2 ratings of the show suggest that Midnight, Texas is a binge-worthy show, making it perfect for a streaming service like Amazon Prime Video. If you want Amazon Prime Video to revive Midnight, Texas, you can help encourage the company to salvage the supernatural drama by purchasing the first two seasons of the show through Amazon.
