Moonlight: Now that Three Rivers is Cancelled, Will the Vampire Show Return?

Mick St. John forever?Over the weekend, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler confirmed that the Three Rivers TV show had indeed been cancelled. Now that Alex O’Loughlin is finished with that series, does that mean that Moonlight will be coming back?

Moonlight follows private investigator and vampire Mick St. John (O’Loughlin) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), an Internet reporter. St. John saved Beth’s life as a child and the two develop a romantic relationship years later. Others in the series include Jason Dohring, Shannyn Sossamon, and Brian J. White

Though Moonlight had decent ratings and a devout group of followers, CBS decided to cancel the series after just one season. The network wanted to stay in business with O’Loughlin however and that eventually led to him being cast in Three Rivers.

Is O'Loughlin's career being hurt by Moonlight?

While some Moonlight fans followed O’Loughlin to the new series, many didn’t. Some people who have posted to this site have said that they refused to watch Three Rivers in hopes that this would somehow convince/force CBS to revive Moonlight.

Now that Three Rivers has been officially cancelled, will Moonlight be back? While Tassler proudly takes credit for being ahead of the current vampire craze, she says that the network has no plans to revive the little-watched cult favorite.

Despite his show’s low ratings, Tassler does still believe in O’Loughlin’s talent and said, “We’re trying to find something for him.”

What do you think? What kind of role would you like to see O’Loughlin take on next? Do you think Moonlight is a help or hindrance to his career? Is the role that helped make him famous actually stifling his career?

    It is obvious that Nina Tassler (and many other TV execs) could care less about anything but money. What a sad and shallow world to inhabit. ‘Moonlight’ was a great series – good acting, great chemistry, good writing, ….and by the way, Tassler, you are so NOT ‘ahead’ of the ‘vampire’ craze…it goes back to Anne Rice, and the earliest series being ‘Dark Shadows’ (both ), ‘Buffy’, ‘Angel’….that was ‘way back’ in the 90’s….but if it makes you feel better about your shallow, sucky decision to cancel ‘Moonlight’ by lying to yourself, we all know the real story. Screw you, Tassler and CBS.
