Will Netflix or Amazon Prime pick up Midnight Texas season 3?

If you were a fan of NBC’s Midnight Texas you will not have been happy at the news that it was being cancelled. The series created from Charlaine Harris’ novels went down well with supernatural fans but not so well with the general population. That counted against the show and resulted in its inevitable end. But will Netflix or Amazon Prime pick up Midnight Texas season 3?

I think so.

It’s just the kind of thing Netflix would like on its books as it’s a bit different and will appeal to a wider demographic than the usual stuff they have on the service.

Midnight Texas

Midnight Texas was adapted from books by Charlaine Harris who wrote True Blood. It is set in a small town that is a haven for supernaturals of all kinds. A mixture of witches, vampires, psychics, angels and others all call it home and work to keep themselves safe from the outside world and free from interference from other supernaturals.

The series stars François Arnaud as psychic Manfred Bernardo, Parisa Fitz-Henley as witch Fiji Cavanaugh, Peter Mensah as vampire Lemuel Bridger, Sarah Ramos as normal girl Creek Lovell and a selection of others. Each is well cast, lives up to their character and does a convincing job of telling their story.

The seasons unfold as various bad guys, demons, hit men and other nefarious characters come to town to find one of the inhabitants or generally cause trouble. Each storyline required a combination of supernatural abilities to counter and brought the town closer together as a result. All the while, characters are evolving and developing in their own right.

Season 2 sees the town welcome a new hotel that isn’t quite as it seems. With new characters and new enemies, the Midnighters have to sort out their own problems as well as those the town faces. It’s a busy storyline with lots going on and is paced well enough for you to not lose track of what’s happening or get fed up with the speed at which things unfold.

Season one had ten episodes while season 2 had nine. By the end, viewing figures had dwindled to only the hardcore supernatural fans and that wasn’t enough for NBC.

Will there be a Midnight Texas season 3?

At the time of writing, there is no confirmation either way that there will ever be a Midnight Texas season 3. NBC’s owners, Universal said they were putting the series out to the market to see who would pick it up but there is no news so far as to who, if anyone, will do that.

It is likely that either Netflix or Amazon Prime will pick up Midnight Texas. Personally, I think it will be Netflix. The characteristics of the TV show suit the general demographic of Netflix and the edgy nature of some of its programming. Amazon Prime does have some more cult shows but Netflix seems to have more and seems content to feature even more as the service matures. I for one, am fine with that.

True Blood did exceptionally well for HBO and is still shown around the world many years later. While Midnight Texas doesn’t quite have the same strength of character and engagement factor, it is still a well-written series with likeable characters and a believable setting. Plus, we all like to watch TV about people with special powers or who battle evil on our behalf. This is exactly that.

There is a real appetite for alternative realities right now. With the real world being like it is and most of us wanting an escape that won’t harm our health, supernatural and apocalyptic TV shows and movies are having a great time of it right now. We have moved on from zombies and disaster epics and are now more interested in more nuanced stories with subtle differences from real life. That’s exactly what Midnight Texas delivers.

I liked Midnight Texas. I thought it was a great way to fill 45 minutes while being entertained and forgetting about the real world for a while. I think lots of other people felt the same way. I also think the falling viewer figures were down to NBC rather than a poor show and I think both Netflix and Amazon could do a much better job. Only time will tell on that one though!

Awesome show, it’s sad when you get hooked on an amazing show and they cancel! I dont feel like it was enough marketing for this show because I just found out about this and now I can’t shop watching it. Cancellation of this show was not well thought out, so please return this show and do more marketing because people like me may not have cable TV and we really need something awesome to was on the channel’s we do pay for.

Gutted that it was cancelled, please please please somebody else pick up this awesome show! It’s the right amount of scare that I can watch it alone, it has dry comedy it has heart warming moments it has twists and turns, what more could you want. The cast are well suited to their acting roles and portray everyone perfectly. Don’t let it become dead and buried.

Im disapointed that it was cancelled. The idea of the socalled good and bad living as a close knit family in one little town was very entertaining and I really hope that it gets picked up by another station and we get to see season 3 start again soon in 2020
