NBC has axed two more shows.
Midnight, Texas and Marlon won’t live to see another day, at least not at NBC.
Midnight, Texas revolved around supernatural activity and followed the lives of the vampires, witches, angels, and other things in a fictional Texas town. It was based on the book series by True Blood author Charlaine Harris. The series got the ax towards the end of its second season which means that next week’s season finale now marks the series finale.
But perhaps this isn’t the very end for the series given that it is being shopped to other networks by Universal Television.
Marlon centered on divorced couple Marlon Wayne and his ex-wife Ashley try to stay friends and co-parent for the sake of their two children, Marley and Zack. The series starred Essence Atkins, Bresha Webb, Diallo Riddle, Notlim Taylor, and Amir O’Neil.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series experienced a ratings drop from season 1 to season 2, which most likely contributed to the network’s decision to end the show. Marlon ended its second season in July and averaged a 0.6 rating and 2.6 million total viewers in season two.
