Midnight Texas cast 

Review of "Midnight Texas" 7/30/17 by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays on NBC.

I love this show! Its based on some books by Charlaine Harris. I haven't read this particular series of novels, but I've read many of hers, and they're always fun to read. This series is fun as well.

A man who can see and talk to the dead, on the run from someone, runs to the small Texas town. His dead grandmother talks to him a lot, and she told him that he'd be safe there. The small town has a vampire, a werewolf, a witch and some other supernatural creatures, as well as humans. The characters are great, and there's a lot of action. I can't wait to see what happens next!

The actor who plays the reluctant hero Manfred (Francois Arnaud) is gorgeous as well as being a fine actor. He reminds me a little bit of Michael Raymond-James (Neal in "Once Upon a Time") and a little bit of Skeet Ulrich (Jake in "Jericho"). All of the cast is fabulous, though.


The town of Midnight sits on a veil between the living and hell.
This supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote Texas town called Midnight where nothing is what it seems.  Where being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different -- a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.
“Midnight, Texas” stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies.  Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke Cage”); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, “Ballers”); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, “True Blood”); Creek, an aspiring writer with big dreams who learns her family is harboring a deep secret (Sarah Ramos, “Parenthood”); and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon (Yul Vazquez, “Captain Phillips”).   
As the town members fight off outside pressures from ever-suspicious cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form an unlikely but strong family.  “Midnight, Texas” is based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”) and executive produced by Monica Owusu-Breen (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) and David Janollari (“Six Feet Under”) and produced by Universal Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
