The Vampire Diaries wasn't initially welcomed by critics who deduced the show as yet another lame vampire series that takes the premise of its predecessors. But surprisingly, the first 10 episodes of the CW series didn't suck. In fact, The Vampire Diaries is now one of the latest fan sensations sweeping through pop culture, earning record breaking ratings for the network.

This just proves that the vampire genre hasn't been saturated, even with Twilight and True Blood around. Does this mean there's still room for CBS' Moonlight? Sorry to disappoint Moonlight fans but Eonline.com has already looked into the possible scenario and the results are not good.


With the success of The Vampire Diaries and True Blood, rumors about a possible resurrection of the canceled cult hit series, which is about a vampire private investigator who struggles with his attraction to a mortal woman, started to surface.

Gabrielle Stanton, one of Moonlight's original writers and executive producers, explained the rumors about the resurrection of the vampire series have been greatly exaggerated. "Will have to look into it, but I hope they don't get their hopes up too much," he said.

Should CBS decide to bring back Moonlight, at least lead star Alex O'Loughlin is available, considering his new series Three Rivers has already been canceled. Unfortunately, it looks like Moonlight will have to stay dead now that a CBS rep already debunked reports that the network "had reopened an online comments forum asking fans to weigh in about the future of the show."
