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?

    enough with the vampire stuff!! If ticks and leeches are bad news, what do you think vamps are??? The guy couldn’t make it as a vamp, nor a doctor on three rivers. A movie with JLo was puke!!! Maybe this time on hawaii 50 he can finally make believe he is an actor..

    I loves Moonlight, I think it really helped making Alex famous.
    If they would give the show a couple more seasons or at least a decent ending. Then people might actually watch another show about Alex. Actually i’m pretty sure that Moonlight’s audience will increase much more. Especially since the vampire hype is getting greater by the mnute (at least here in the netherlands)

    Loved loved loved moonlight! The show needs to return with a second season it is still not tolate to revive the charming Mick St. John with a fresh new look on what vampires are doing on the airwaves I have no doubt that the show would continue to be the success that it still is even years after it was cancelled. The show had and still has great potential and reruns just dont cut it new material is needed stat!! Alex O’Laughlin is awesome as Mick and with the new renewed vampire craze its a programing crime to not bring it back when so many are clamoring for its return.
