Midnight, Texas — NBC series

“Season 2 is much soapier, scarier, sexier,” shares co-showrunner Nicole Snyder, who says the show is aiming to be more like the hit HBO vampire drama True Blood. Adds co-showrunner Eric Charmelo: “We were thinking of this season as a supernatural noir.… Don’t believe what you’re seeing, because there’s always a twist on a twist on a twist.” What viewers should expect to see are dueling love triangles, “demonic cancer,” and witches’ and vampires’ worst nightmare: hipsters. (Ours, too.) Season 2 premieres Oct. 26 at 9 p.m. ET.
