We have all been wondering just what stories Moonlight would tell us if it has a second season. Harry Werksman (executive producer & writer) gave a bit of season 2 info to the fans. Thanks to Nikki @ Buzzwire & several friends at the convention, I'm sharing what he had to say with you.
As we heard previously, Moonlight's creators Trevor Munson & Ron Koslow were not with the show for the final 4 episodes. Harry confirms this :( They "were fired because CBS wanted the show to move more in the direction of "CSI vampire" (Harry's words). Ron and Trevor couldn't/wouldn't do that."
Of course, keep in mind that all storylines are subject to change as we have seen many times in the past.
WARNING ~ Spoilers ahead!
1 ~ Officially not returning/dead: Ryder, Lt. Carl, and Josef's Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Whitley). Harry said they are all done, though wouldn't reveal how they ended up gone.
2 ~ Josef's attorney & freshie, Simone Walker, was supposed to return in season two. However.... Abigail Spencer, the actress playing her, failed to mention she's pregnant. They're not sure what to do with that.
The Cleaner will also be featured more. Harry said the part was originally written with Claudia Black in mind, but she was pregnant at the time. They were very happy when she finally played the part in Moonlight's season finale, Sonata (episode #1x16).
This is a biggie! For months, we've all been discussing Beth having a rare blood type, "unwanted" link to Coraline & speculated about why she was selected to be kidnapped. Here is the answer.....
3 ~ Beth IS indeed part of the French Royal bloodline. She does hold the key to the cure, which is why she was kidnapped. Harry also said that because of this Beth CAN NOT be turned! Whether that means she can't because it wouldn't work, or because she would die was left up in the air.
Another thing we've been chatting about is who gave the list of vamp names to ADA Talbot. Some wondered if there was a group of "watchers" as you find in other genre shows & films.
4 ~ Season two was going to revolve around a group called "The Legion" who have been around forever. They are humans. THEY GAVE THE LIST TO TALBOT!!! They feel that the vampire population has gotten out of control in Los Angeles and needs to be reduced. The Legion basically declare war with the Vampires. Lance & Coraline return asking Mick to help. Basically, he now only has one choice - fight with the vampires or fight with the humans. Harry said total vampire apocalypse would indeed be the case. One planned scene was having the L.A. River at night FULL with 100s of Cleaners taking on the Legion army.
