 This past Monday, July 24, “Midnight Texas” finally premiered on NBC.  The story centers around the remote Texas town of Midnight, Texas where being normal is really quite strange and only outsiders fit in.  It is a safe haven for those who are different.  When a powerful psychic arrives along with the murder of one of their own, that safety is threatened from suspicious cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts.  Based on the New York Times best-selling book series Midnight, Texas by Charlaine Harris, author of the novels that inspired, “True Blood”, Eclipse Magazine had the delight of getting a sneak preview days before the premiere.  Now that the show has finally revealed the pilot episode, let’s take a look at what the cast and crew have shared and what we can expect to see this upcoming season.

You couldn’t miss it.  As you walked toward the San Diego Convention Center to enter upon the festivities of Comic Con, the Midnight Texas experience was there, complete with tarot card readers and a replica of the extra of the Midnight Texas restaurant.  And of course, the Midnight Texas cast and crew were there to delight fans of the book series during the panel and autograph signings.

We had the chance to interview the cast and crew for Midnight Texas not one, but twice!  Check out recent interviews below and more to come from Comic Con on the upcoming season!

The season premiere was amazing!  I had waited weeks to see this show and instead of seeing the press screener, I opted to watch the show on real time along with other TV viewers.  From the beginning, viewers were drawn into the world of psychic Manfred Bernardo as his gifts of seeing the undead.   It was clear that when he arrived in Midnight, Texas, things were a little off.  As a murder starts off Manfred’s first week in what was to be his “safe haven”, it appears that full safety may not be as simple. Various towns members, which include a witch, a vampire, an angel, a hit woman, a man that transforms into a tiger, and a talking cat,  their secrets are slowly revealed, but only enough to catch a glimpse.   As we watch the police car leave carrying the fiance of the victim, we can’t help but want to know what happens next.  Until next Monday . . .
