Joel Silver says writers already working on Moonlight stories for season two!

SciFi Wire has interviewed Moonlight's executive producer Joel Silver. I'm happy to hear that our writers are already thinking ahead & working on storylines for next season! All my positive vibes are headed their way for that pitch meeting with CBS :)

Moonlight Looks To Year Two
by Cindy White

Joel Silver, executive producer of the CBS vampire drama Moonlight, told SCI FI Wire that he and the writers are already working on stories for a hoped-for second season and that he will be pitching CBS next week to win renewal.

We're hopeful," Silver said in a group interview on April 18 while promoting his latest film, Speed Racer. "I mean, the next episode goes on next Friday night, 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."

CBS will announce its fall lineup in May at its annual upfront presentation to advertisers in New York. Before then, Silver and the writing staff are planning to meet with the network and make their case for season two for the show, which has earned solid if unspectacular ratings.

"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," Silver said. "And then that, coupled with the ratings, we'll know what happens." Moonlight returns with the first of four new episodes on April 25 in its regular timeslot, Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Excellent - That's some great news! I can't imagine CBS being stupid enough NOT to pick up the show, but it will be good to hear that confirmed. At least there will be one interesting show on this fall...

Joel Silver is a powerhouse in Hollywood. It is quite obvious that he thinks this show has potential & of high quality. Of course, we fans know that already. CBS should listen when Joel Silver speaks. Also, it is always a plus to have Mr. Silver on our side. Good news keep piling up.

Thanks, Kandye, again. Keep them coming.
