The Midnight, Texas season 2 finale — or, at present, the series finale — is slated to air on Friday night. This will be potentially the culmination of everything this season, complete with the Dark Witches coming to town preparing to destroy everything good in the world. You don’t get a tease that is often more ominous than this.
The only thing sadder than Dark Witches destroying everything? The thought of this being the end of the road for the show. You can check out some more thoughts on the cancellation in our video below; meanwhile, be sure to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube for some other updates.
So how bad are things going to be getting in this finale? Speaking in a new interview with TVInsider, executive producer Eric Charmelo had the following to say about it:
The end of the season is quite dark — literally a bloodbath. We’ve been killing off characters you’d never think we could.
Isn’t this precisely the point of the show in some ways? The objective here is to find a way to keep viewers consistently on their toes and we have a good feeling that they will end up succeeding in that. Specifically, we mean this in terms of Manfred — the show’s main hero is going to risk everything for the good of the town, and in doing so he may make a sacrifice with far-reaching ramifications. Doesn’t that seem like a good season 3 tease? We do get the sense that there will be at least some sort of tease as to what the future of the series could be in the finale; whether or not it is a jaw-dropping cliffhanger remains to be seen, but don’t expect everything in the town to be tied together in a neat little bow. Such is not life, especially in a place full of supernatural creatures.
If you haven’t seen it already, the promo below gives you a small sense of some of the specific danger that is coming. Beyond just that, you also get a clearer picture of precisely what some in the town are going to be doing to combat it and the potential for violence and/or floods of tears among viewers. All of this is probably going to make it all the sadder that this season is so short; it’s shorter even than some cable shows, and that is probably going to make the cancellation news even more of a frustration to viewers.
