The town of Midnight is a safe haven for supernatural creatures. However, it isn’t just ancient angels, witches, vampires, or weretigers that live in the community. There are also humans.
There will be a portal, and the last time it opened, demons came through. Everyone in town is going to have to work together to deal with that when it happens. There is also a murder that takes place. However, the executive producer teased that it will not be easy for the characters to become heroes.
Manfred Bernardo (Francois Arnaud) is a medium. He is the main character and even though he has a gift, he has also scammed many people out of a lot of money. In addition to this, the Midnight, Texas character also has an opiate addiction.
Creek Lovell (Sarah Ramos) is human and is pretty much the only resident of Midnight, Texas who hasn’t prejudged Manfred. The two will share a connection, but she also has a dark past. Even though she has dreams of seeing the world and becoming a writer, she stays in town for one reason. That is to protect her younger brother from their father.
Joe Strong (Jason Lewis) is an ancient angel. He has been here for 1,000 years but is in hiding. He masquerades as a tattoo artist and keeps his true identity a secret from everyone except his husband.
Lemuel Bridger (Peter Mensah) is a vampire, but he doesn’t just consume blood. He also feeds off the energy and emotions of others. This works very well for his partner, Olivia Charity (Arielle Kebbel).
Bobo Winthrop (Dylan Bruce) is mysterious. He seems like a great guy until someone hurts a person he cares about. As for his life before Midnight, Texas, nobody knows anything. That is a good clue he is hiding from something, but what?
There is also a reverend who turns into a weretiger, a witch, and a talking cat.
It seems like this new summer TV show is going to have something for everyone. Will you be watching when Midnight, Texas premieres on July 24?
