CW's Dawn Ostroff credits fan letters & emails with influencing decision to air Moonlight

TV Guide interviewed Dawn Ostroff (entertainment chief of the CW Network) regarding the channel's plan to air Moonlight after The Vampire Diaries. She specifically says all the email messages and letters loyal fans of the show continue to send influenced their decision! *cheer* Keep up the good work! Who knows what else Moonlight fans will accomplish. =)

In this article, Alex is also quoted about enjoying the "aggressive, animalistic side of the show."

The CW Sinks Its Teeth Into Moonlight
by Ileane Rudolph

Alex O'Loughlin fans got a bloody good summer treat when the CW acquired all 16 episodes of Moonlight, the Aussie actor's short-lived but beloved vampire detective show. "We get letters and e-mails about Moonlight all the time," says CW entertainment chief Dawn Ostroff. "And so we thought it would be interesting if we aired it following The Vampire Diaries."

Moonlight (Thursdays at 9/8c, The CW) follows the perpetually 30-year-old private investigator Mick St. John (O'Loughlin), his hedonistic buddy Josef (Jason Dohring) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), a young reporter whose chemistry with Mick threatens her relationship with her human fiancé. Around to cause trouble: the seductive Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon), who turned Mick on their wedding night six decades earlier.

On tonight's episode, as Mick and Beth track down a dangerous newly formed blood sucker, the potential couple have the conversation. Mick offers the snoopy journalist a primer on all things vampire. But will he reveal his own creepily romantic turning story? And will Beth bolt?

"I love the aggressive, animalistic side of the show," says O'Loughlin, who will star in CBS' buzzworthy remake of Hawaii Five-O in the fall. "I love the genre, the action and the masculinity of the character." The many passionate female fans were "awesome," he says, "but I want my pals to think it's cool." Cool, yeah, and very, very hot.

They broadcast the series now?! in Greece, were I am writing u from... so I will not see Alex O'Loughlin in anything else than Moonlight Season 2 or Moonlight the movie. Sorry I can't, I saw 2 minutes of three rivers and that makes me really maaaaaad! Who's idea was this - I'm shocked. I will not see Hawaii blabla either, like I said nothing else than Moonlight Season 2

Please let moonlight come back again on TV it's a great show to see ...
This is a series where everything is romance, action etc.
The end of this season is too open and lacks a sequel season ..
This series is a worthy sequel season
