The Midnight, Texas season 2 finale ratings have officially come in over at NBC, and as a whole, they more or less met expectations. Alas, they also didn’t do enough to make us feel confident the series could be heading somewhere else.

The final episode of the season, which featured everything from big battles to a major Fiji surprise near the end, generated a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It did a good job of at least matching the ratings of the week prior, which is probably all that this show could really hope for when you think about some of the circumstances surrounding its airing. This is a series that, after all, faced an enormous challenge from the jump in that it had to find a way in order to succeed over the holidays. Beyond just that, but Friday nights during said holiday season is all the more difficult. Even if there wasn’t much else around in the way of competition, there wasn’t really a large pool of available viewers, either. This is a show that did the best that it could with the audience that it had, but it unfortunately just didn’t have all that much of a crowd checking it out.
At present, we have to consider last night’s episode the end of the road — while there’s been talk of the series being shopped around there is no guarantee someone else will pick it up. It’s a long-shot at best, but we do still feel grateful that this show was able to run for two seasons in the first place. Given how long NBC took to make the decision to renew the series after the first season, we are more than aware that this was not a guarantee and it could’ve gone the other way even before season 2 happened.
What we’re really hoping for now, provided that the series does not come back, is twofold. First, we hope that the Midnight, Texas cast is able to find some really-good work in some other venues, potentially on a show that’s stable so they don’t have to stress over ratings. Beyond that, we do hope that NBC does continue to find itself some additional genre programming. There’s been talk of a spin-off series for Grimm, so that’s one of the big things that we’re going to be looking at moving into the future.
