It's been three years since True Blood ended, slinking back into the shadows from whence it came, and now that The Vampire Diaries has ended too, vampire fans really need something new to sink their teeth into. Fortunately, NBC have now picked up a new supernatural show called Midnight, Texas, based on the books of True Blood author Charlaine Harris.

While Midnight, Texas may feature less naked scenes starring Alexander Skarsgård and his refined behind, NBC's new show promises to be just as raunchy, fulfilling our guilty pleasure quotient for the foreseeable future. Oh, and Midnight, Texas also includes a ton of vampires, witches, angels, ghosts, psychics and even were-tigers that will definitely fill the shaped hole in your heart.

Check out the trailer for your new TV addiction in the clip below:

Led by French Canadian actor François Arnaud, (The Borgias, Blindspot, I Killed My Mother), combines mystery, horror and romance in what critics are describing as a 'sister show' to True Blood. Check out the official synopsis below and see if you're tempted to visit Midnight, Texas, a place where 'Only outsiders fit in':

"From the visionary director of "Mr. Robot" and based on the hit book series from the author behind HBO's "True Blood" comes a journey into a remote Texas town where no one is who they seem. From vampires and witches to psychics and hit men, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different. As the town members fight off outside pressures from rowdy biker gangs, ever-suspicious cops and their own dangerous pasts, they band together and form a strong and unlikely family."

Whether Midnight, Texas eventually connects with True Blood in some way or whether the show even lasts more one season remains to be seen, but whatever happens, make sure you tune in for the NBC premiere on July 25. After all, there's only so many times that you can fire up the True Blood DVD box set before you start to hear the name "Sookie" screaming in your sleep.
