NBC Cancels MIDNIGHT, TEXAS & MARLON After Two Seasons


NBC has called it quits on two of its shows supernatural book adaption Midnight, Texas and comedy Marlon after two seasons.

Midnight Texas is based on the trilogy of the same name written by Charlaine Harris (True Blood/Southern Vampire Mysteries) started as a summer show in its first season before moving to midseason for season two.

The show starred François Arnaud, takes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. In Midnight, Texas, being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. It’s a mysterious safe haven for those who are different — a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world.

The cast includes Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Jason Lewis and Peter Mensah. 

Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, the family comedy centered on a loving (but sometimes inappropriate) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first — even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
