I seriously did not think this would happen but CBS has not renewed ‘Moonlight‘ for a second season – not even for a back 13 mid-season. Read an article by Hollywood insider Nikki Finke about the money issue (isn’t everything about money?) as well as about some of the behind-the-scenes trouble, which may have played a huge part in CBS’ unfavourable decision in the end.
Is there still reason to hope? According to another blog entry there might be.
“There is a chance, only a chance” that Media Rights Capital which will be programming Sunday’s two hours on the CW “may elect to take Moonlight as one of those two hours”. This is developing to be quite a behind-the-scenes drama because the order came from Warner Bros TV this afternoon to start tearing the Moonlight sets down. But now WBTV will wait until Friday. Before it was cancelled, it had more than twice the number of viewers on CBS than Gossip Girl despite all the hype. So Moonlight could wind up the most watched CW show. Stay tuned.
