SDCC News Roundup: ‘Midnight Texas’ Adds Three Cast Members, First Look at Live-Action ‘Kim Possible’

This year’s San Diego Comic-Con is yielding an outstanding amount of television news. Here’s the skinny on all the announcements coming from San Diego this weekend.

Midnight, Texas

NBC announced Nestor Carbonell (“Bates Motel,” “Lost”), Jaime Ray Newman (“The Punisher,” “Bates Motel”) and Josh Kelly (“Unreal”) will add new layers of intrigue and suspense to the one-stoplight town of “Midnight, Texas,” which begins its second season at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 on NBC.

Carbonell and Newman will recur as Kai and Patience Lucero, respectively, the owners of Midnight’s new hotel. Their sudden arrival in town causes a stir and has the Midnighters suspicious about what is really going on. Kelly will recur as Walker Chisum, an openly gay demon hunter who has an intense connection with resident angel Joe Strong (Jason Lewis).
