Spoilers might be ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know what to expect on the new summer TV show.

To get viewers ready for the premiere of Midnight, Texas, NBC released several sneak peek photos. They give a glimpse into what to expect. Just because it is the first episode doesn’t mean nothing exciting will happen. Based on the images, a lot is going to happen.

In addition to the photos, the synopsis has also been released. According to Spoiler TV, the town is a safe place for supernatural creatures. However, it sits on the veil between the living and hell.

As previously teased by the Inquisitr, as Midnight, Texas progresses, the characters will discover that a portal is going to open. The last time that happened, a lot of evil came through. In order to save their sanctuary of a town, the only place where these supernatural entities feel safe and accepted, they will have to work together.

“Manfred Bernardo (François Arnaud), a powerful psychic on the run, decides to hide out in the small, sleepy town of Midnight, Texas. But when he’s haunted by the ghost of a recently murdered Midnighter, Manfred discovers this sleepy community is a mysterious safe haven for outsiders with secrets – both supernatural and human – including Lemuel (Peter Mensah), an energy-leeching vampire; Olivia (Arielle Kebbel), a beautiful assassin; Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley), a witch with a cranky cat; Creek (Sarah Ramos), a spunky writer with big dreams; Bobo (Dylan Bruce), a pawnshop owner with a hidden past; the Rev (Yul Vazquez), who has an obsession for animals; and Joe (Jason Lewis), an angelic tattoo artist. In addition to the colorful residents, Manfred learns the town itself sits on a veil between the living and dead. He pledges to join the Midnighters in the fight to protect their home from suspicious cops and other outside forces.”

In addition to the wide variety of supernatural creatures and human beings that live in Midnight, fans will also meet a talking cat.

Charlaine Harris, who wrote the books Midnight, Texas and HBO’s True Blood are based on, spoke about the television series. She teased that those who have not read her books will be hit hard by the unexpected. While some writers might be nervous or hesitant about TV shows not doing the books justice, Harris seems thrilled about this project.


This new summer TV show seems to have a little bit of everything for everyone. In addition, don’t expect it to just stick to a supernatural theme. It will incorporate western, comedy, and horror genres, too. It was hinted at the ATX Television Festival in Austin that each episode will be a carnival ride.
