Three Moons Over Milford: Series’ Future Eclipsed

Three Moons Over Milford castTo little surprise, the Disney Company’s ABC Family channel has announced the end of its original and quirky series entitled Three Moons Over Milford.

Three Moons was a unique drama set in the idealic small town of Milford, Vermont. Shortly before the pilot episode began, an asteroid struck the moon, shattering it into three large pieces and threatening to fall to Earth. The threat of an eventual “Judgment Day” causes many people to question their lives and live them to extremes by quitting jobs, indulging vices and living as if each day were their last. It starred Elizabeth McGovern and Rob Boltin as the heads of the Davis family.

Three Moons Over Milford got off to a slow start on August 6, 2006 on ABC Family. The ratings were less than spectacular (1.6 million viewers) — especially compared to another original ABC Family series, the very popular Kyle XY series. Unfortunately, despite having an original concept, Three Moons’ ratings didn’t get any stronger as the rest of eight episodes aired.

The last original episode aired on September 24, 2006 (a cliffhanger entitled “Goodnight Moon”). There is no word on a future DVD release but all eight episodes are available for download at
Apple’s iTunes store

That show was very innovative. It was a big mistake not keeping on with the series.

Three Moons Over Milford was an excellent show, and it’s wrong for them to end the series on that cliffhanger!
I’ve been waiting months for it to come back on..and I’ve discovered that it was canceled…this is very upsetting.
(Please bring it back..I’m dying to know what happens in the romance department between the couples of the show.)
