“Being a vampire sucks.” These are the first words uttered by vampire/private investigator Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin), in the series premiere of the Moonlight TV show. Those words would soon apply to being a fan too, since Moonlight was cancelled by CBS after only one season of 16 episodes, back in May of 2008. Now the complete series is available to stream for free, on the ad-supported CW Seed.
As The CW is a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment, and Moonlight was produced by Warner Bros. Television, we’re left wondering why it took them so long to put the series up on CW Seed. A paranormal romance drama, Moonlight also stars Sophia Myles, Jason Dohring, and Shannyn Sossamon, in addition to Hawaii Five-0‘s O’Loughlin. It premiered on CBS in September of 2007 and was the epitome of a “bubble” show, with the writers preparing for a second season, as late as April of 2008.

This isn’t the first time The CW has brought Moonlight back to its fans. In the summer of 2010, the broadcast network paired the first and only season with re-runs of The Vampire Diaries, season one.
Here’s The CW’s description of Moonlight from a 2010 press release:
On MOONLIGHT, Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin) is a captivating, charming and immortal private investigator from Los Angeles, who defies the traditional blood-sucking norms of his vampire tendencies by using his wit and powerful supernatural abilities to help the living. In a life-altering twist of fate, Mick was “bitten” 60 years ago by his new bride, the seductive Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon).
Forever 30 years of age, Mick’s as handsome and charismatic as the day he was “turned,” and he eschews others of his kind who view humans only as a source of nourishment. With only a handful of like-minded confidantes for company, including the eternally young, wealthy and mischievous Josef (Jason Dohring), a hedge fund trader who relishes his uniqueness, Mick fills his infinite days protecting the living.
One night years ago, a single act of kindness changed Mick when he saved a young girl’s life, making him want to be a better vampire. Now their paths cross again and Mick develops a distinctive bond with Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), who has grown into a beautiful, ambitious internet investigative reporter. Reconnecting with her unleashes feelings Mick knows he can’t pursue without exposing that part of him that would make him a monster in Beth’s eyes.
As Mick lives between two realities, fighting his adversaries among the undead and falling in love, he discovers the mysteries and pleasures that a valuable life has to offer.
Produced By: Silver Pictures Television in association with Warner Bros. Television
Executive Producers: Joel Silver, Chip Johannessen, Ron Koslow, Rod Holcomb and Gerard Bocaccio
Co-Executive Producer: Trevor Munson
Moonlight co-star Dohring, of course, first became a fan favorite as Logan Echolls, in the also cancelled-too-soon CW drama, Veronica Mars. Moonlight EP, Joel Silver, was also an executive producer on that series.

R these networks thinking I’ve watched all of moonlight and forever on CW SEED ….just cancelling such great shows are stupid..us consumers love these shows and to just end them this way to put up some show nobody cares about isn’t very smart..if u want another show move the schedule around and keep all ur ALREADY ESTABLISHED SHOWS ..the reason ppl watch ur network…I LOVE BOTH THE MOONLIGHT SERIES AND FOREVER SO PLEASE BRING THEM BACK
I would love to see the origin cast do a revival if possible!! If not then only if they stay true to the characters! I love Moonlight I wish I would have seen it when it first came out!
I would love to see Moonlight and other shows like Moonlight, say, “Kindred the Embrace” brought back to life. I think that there are a lot of us out there that are hoping for our type of shows to be brought back.
Yes…please please please make a MoonLight Revival!!!’❤️
Yes I love it and would like for it to make a comeback. It really needs another season

I am a fan. I didn’t see it when it first came out but just recently have watched the series twice. Yes it needs another season to see if they are still together. Absolutely I want another run of it!!
I would love to see the show revived with the original cast.
Oh, yes, I am a fan of this particular series. Too bad it didn’t last longer than one season, but them’s the breaks, I guess. Problem is, vampires can’t age, but humans can. Then again, “True Blood” and “The Vampire Diaries” had good runs. Oh, well, when it comes to “Moonlight”, fangs for the memories
(sorry, couldn’t resist that particular gem!).
