'Midnight, Texas' Is Kind of, Sort of Based on a Real Town

By Anna Quintana

The setting of Midnight, Texas is a remote town in the Lone Star State — located somewhere between the living and dead — so technically the town does not exist IRL, but does it? 

The creator of the NBC drama, Charlaine Harris, who wrote the novels that inspired the supernatural show and is also the mastermind behind the True Blood series, may have hinted that Midnight, Texas, though not located on any map, is more real than people realize. "Midnight is a lot like the little town that I knew," she told the Star-Telegram, prompting many to believe its real-life counterpart is Rocksprings, Texas, where Charlaine spent her summers growing up. "

Unfortunately, as far as we know, Rocksprings is known for its bats colony and state parks, not for being a safe haven for those who are different, like Manfred the psychic or Lemuel, the wise vampire.
