Can you believe it's been 11 years since Moonlight first aired?! (11 years, 4 months, 24 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Moonlight end?
When Moonlight came to an end after 1 year in May 2008, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin), Josef Kostan (Jason Dohring), Coraline Duvall (Shannyn Sossamon) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Moonlight reunion disappoint people?
Moonlight aired from 2007-2008 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Myles said she's not sure if Moonlight would work today. “I don't want to see old Beth Turner,” she told a journalist (Myles turned 38 in March). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Moonlight movie?
In a recent interview, Sophia Myles said she can't imagine a Moonlight reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Kevin Weisman (who played Steve Balfour) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Moonlight movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Moonlight film, David Blue stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Moonlight reboot?
Recasting Moonlight for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Moonlight reunion, a Moonlight movie, or a Moonlight reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
