The CW Resurrects MOONLIGHT… Sort Of

Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles) in Moonlight's episode

The CW is resurrecting CBS’ short lived MOONLIGHT this Summer, well.. sort of. The network will actually re-air the first season of the show on Thursday nights beginning June 3 at 9pm, following encore episodes of the first season of the The CW’s hit drama, The Vampire Diaries.

But don’t get your hopes up too high, there still aren’t any plans to resurrect the series, especially since Alex O’Loughlin has been cast in another CBS project, the remake of Hawaii Five-O. That said, at least we’ll get to see the whole season one all over again.

Synopsis: On MOONLIGHT, Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin) is a captivating, charming and immortal private investigator from Los Angeles, who defies the traditional blood-sucking norms of his vampire tendencies by using his wit and powerful supernatural abilities to help the living. In a life-altering twist of fate, Mick was “bitten” 60 years ago by his new bride, the seductive Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon). Forever 30 years of age, Mick’s as handsome and charismatic as the day he was “turned,” and he eschews others of his kind who view humans only as a source of nourishment. With only a handful of like-minded confidantes for company, including the eternally young, wealthy and mischievous Josef (Jason Dohring), a hedge fund trader who relishes his uniqueness, Mick fills his infinite days protecting the living. One night years ago, a single act of kindness changed Mick when he saved a young girl’s life, making him want to be a better vampire. Now their paths cross again and Mick develops a distinctive bond with Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), who has grown into a beautiful, ambitious internet investigative reporter. Reconnecting with her unleashes feelings Mick knows he can’t pursue without exposing that part of him that would make him a monster in Beth’s eyes. As Mick lives between two realities, fighting his adversaries among the undead and falling in love, he discovers the mysteries and pleasures that a valuable life has to offer.
