Midnight, Texas returns for its second season on October 26 and fans, also lovingly called ‘Midnighters,’ were in attendance to see a sneak peak of what to expect and listen to the cast and creators discuss the show. Despite only limited shooting thus far, we are able to see that there is quite a cast of new characters. The show picks up two months after Season 1 ends and a new hotel/spa has opened and it is operated by a healer and his wife. As if that won’t cause enough new drama we also have joining the show a demon-hunting gay cowboy. There will also be new monsters that we will see but only the addition of a banshee was discussed at the panel.
Another note about the sneak peak is that it looks VERY sexy. Levitating, mind-reading sex kind of sexy. Charlaine Harris, author of the book the show is based on, is known for True Blood so it is interesting to see NBC going in the same direction with the adult nature.
See below for some photos of the cast. Videos with interviews from the press room will be coming soon.
