Moonlight: Writers Preparing for Season Two of CBS Vampire Drama

MoonlightCBS has yet to renew the Friday night vampire series but that’s not stopping Moonlight executive producer Joel Silver and the show’s writers. They’re already plotting Moonlight’s second season.

While promoting the upcoming Speed Racer film, Silver talked about Moonlight’s prospects for a second year on CBS. He said, “We’re hopeful… I mean, the next episode goes on next Friday night [April 25th], which is a really great episode. It starts out, Mick [Alex O’Loughlin] is still human, but then he has to go back to being a vampire. And I have three more really strong episodes. And I hope that it does come back, because we have a whole plan for next year that’s fantastic.”

The network has been on the fence about renewing Moonlight though it seems like the chances are good. Silver says that he’s scheduled to meet with CBS programming executives to talk about the show’s future. “Well, we’re going to go in, as a matter of fact, next week for a pitch meeting to tell them what we’re going to do next year.”

Based on what the programmers hear and the performance of the new episodes, they’ll decide whether Mick St. John will return to walk the streets of Los Angeles next fall. CBS announces its 2008-09 schedule in mid-May. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    I loved Moonlight. Even after it won the People’s Choice award, CBS still canceled it. The acting was good, the characters were interesting and I love some of the storylines. While I love the Vampire Diaries too, there’s room for both shows IMHO. I sincerely hope it is given a chance, because I think if given the opportunity for people to actually see the show, it would be a hit. I know Alex is suppose to do Hawaii Five O, but I’d stick with this one if I were him (and assuming he’s given that choice).

    I LOVE Moonlight and so does my little brother. I really hope that CBS takes it on because the show is just absolutely amazing. It’s way better than that stupid Vampire Diaries. Moonlight is original and is nothing like the Twilight saga [which I do love]. Moonlight is not just about romance, it also has a little bit of CSI which makes it unique.
