‘Moonlight’ to come back from the grave?

If there’s one thing you can say about Moonlight, it’s that it was ahead of its time. Vampires didn’t really hit it big until late 2008, with the premiere of True Blood and the release of the Twilight film. Moonlight ended its run in May 2008, barely missing the craze that would later make The Vampire Diaries a hit. What might Moonlight have been had it stuck around just a few more months?

Well, CBS has been wondering that themselves. In fact, they’ve been looking to see what they can do to fix their mistake — and that means talking to the cast. “I just want to say one thing – who was out there first with vampires?” CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler asked Fancast. “Who was out there first?”

Alex O’Loughlin, who starred in the series as main bloodsucker Mick St. John, stayed with CBS in the new series Three Rivers, which was cancelled early on into the 2009-2010 season for low ratings. However, CBS wants to keep O’Loughlin on the network, and bringing back Moonlight is definitely a possibility on that agenda. “We love [Alex] and want him to stay around for a long time,” Tassler confirmed.

But is the Moonlight comeback a possibility? Possibly. Tassler stated that Moonlight‘s executive producer Joel Silver has discussed a potential return of the series with her, “but we talk about a lot of things,” Tassler told Fancast. And even if the decision is made to bring back Moonlight, it wouldn’t be immediate. “We’re about to pick up all of our [2010-11 season] pilots,” Tassler stressed, insinuating that Moonlight wouldn’t be back before the end of 2010.

Of course, the big question that remains from that is: will that be too late? This vampire craze — some might call it a fad — has already lasted a year and a half, but how much staying power does it have? Will we be looking at a possible vampire recession before Moonlight has a chance to regain its footing — or even come back at all?

What do you think? Should CBS bring back Moonlight, or should they drop the idea?

    They most deffinantly need to bring moonlight back, Alex O’Loughlin was amazing as Mick St.John he was the coolest vampire ever and Beth and his relationship never got to develop enough. yes they got to be together after josh died but it wasn’t enough it was so frustrating at the end when it just ended and how can it just end when the list of all the vamps in la was given to the new DA and the show is amazing and needs to come back I just rewatched the first series and got obsessed with it all over again!!!!! Alex O’Loughlin was hot as mick ;)

    • Bonnie

      I fully agree with you. I just made the same mistake of watching the first season again, and it got me frustrated all over again. How can they not continue it with so many people left hanging for the possible next season?!

      • Lynne

        Moonlight would make a great comeback. Alex is in great shape and even better than before. So, moonlight bring it…..!

  • Stacey

    I am watching Season 1 of Moonlight at the moment and I don’t want it to finish knowing that their will be NO Season 2!!!! I can’t believe it, their is so much potential for a great Season 2. I think CBS should defiantly bring back Moonlight.
