Moonlight to Air on The CW... For Some Reason

by at . Comments

Long before there was The Twilight Saga and The Vampire Diaries, there was Moonlight.

This vampire-centric CBS drama starred Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St. John, an immortal private investigator from Los Angeles. The show premiered in 2007 and was canceled after one season.

Now, however, The CW is (sort of) resurrecting the franchise: it will air all 16 completed episodes of Moonlight on Thursdays night at 9 p.m., folliowing Vampire Diaries reruns, starting on June 3.

Does this mean the series has a chance to be brought back full-time? It's highly unlikely, considering O'Loughlin is now attached to Hawaii Five-O.

Why didn't The CW swoop in and save Moonlight two years ago? That's easy: it aired before Edward Cullen and Stefan Salvatore made sexy, big-hearted blood suckers all the rage.

Now that vampires are more popular Justin Bieber, the network will try to capitalize on the trend as part of its summer schedule.

I think there might be a chance for Moonlight who knows the producer might bring it back on and a channel may want it as there show.

I loved this show so much and have missed it even more since its been gone. I'm a teenager and me and my family watched this show everytime it came on. You should definatly try and bring it back. You can't have the show without alex though cause it just wouldn't be the same

Moonlight was awesome because it did not just show the love between and human and a vampire but it also had crime investigation and such in it. I hope it comes back for a season two!

I think that even if they will continue Moonlight it will never be as good as TVD. One vampire show is surely enough! There are other things to care about & if there are too many of these shows it'll get boring. (sorry, i'm not a native speaker)
