Midnighters – looks like the sun is setting.

NBC canceled the supernatural series “Midnight, Texas” based on Charlaine Harris’ books on Friday night.

The season – and series – finale will air at 7 p.m. this Friday.

When the first season premiered in July 2017 with 3.6 million viewers, it became NBC’s No. 1 drama in the key 18-49 demographic.

The second season has seen ratings hover around 2 million viewers, though the Dec. 21 airing pulled in a season high of 2.6 million viewers.

The series stars François Arnaud, Dylan Bruce, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Arielle Kebbel, Jason Lewis and Peter Mensah.

Kebbel, who plays Olivia on the show, posted on her Instagram, “You gave us an amazing season 2. Thank you to our incredibly loyal fans and to everyone who supported us along the way. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Olivia. … Here’s a few fun pics from eps 8 & 9. Best cast. Best writers and producers. Best memories. So grateful for this experience. … #midnighttexas #oliviacharity.”

The supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote Texas town where 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.

It’s home to a vampire, a witch, an angel, a powerful psychic and a hit woman.

The town bands together and form an unlikely but strong family.

The series was filmed at Albuquerque Studios. NBC built the town of Midnight in the back lot of the studios.

Monica Owusu-Breen left as showrunner after the first season and Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder took over for season two.

The time between the first and second season was more than a year off.

According to Deadline.com, “Midnight, Texas” is reportedly being shopped to other networks by Universal Television.

Hulu currently has the streaming rights and Netflix has since purchased Albuquerque Studios.

“Midnight, Texas” returned to Albuquerque to film the second season in June and wrapped filming in mid-September.

According to the New Mexico Film Office, the production employed approximately 400 New Mexico crew members, 40 New Mexico actors and about 1,600 New Mexico background talent.
