TV show description:      
This TV series is a reimagining of the classic story and the CBS 1987-90 drama of the same name.

Homicide detective Catherine “Cat” Chandler (Kristin Kreuk) is a smart, no-nonsense woman who is haunted by her own tragic past. As a teenager, Cat witnessed the murder of her mother at the hands of two gunmen. Young Cat would have been killed as well but someone — or some thing — saved her. No one believed her but she knows that it wasn’t an animal that attacked the assassins. Though her savior was strange and terrifying, it was also human.

Years have passed, and although she thinks about her mother every day, Cat is a strong and capable police detective. She works alongside an equally talented partner, Tess Vargas (Nina Lisandrello). The two ladies make a good team, and have become close friends. They’ve worked on countless homicide cases together, under the supervision of their tough-but-fair boss, Joe Bishop (Brian White).

Cat has also become close with medical examiner Evan Marks (Max Brown). They’ve developed a fun and flirtatious relationship that could easily turn into something deeper — if Cat would let that happen. However, as her younger sister Heather (Nicole Gale Anderson) has observed, Cat’s romantic inclinations tend toward bad boys.

While investigating a new case, Cat and Tess discover fingerprints that lead them to a handsome doctor named Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan). He was reportedly killed by enemy fire while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Digging deeper, Cat learns that Vincent is still very much alive. For mysterious reasons that have forced him to live outside of traditional society, Vincent has been in hiding for the past 10 years.

With the help of his childhood friend, J.T. Forbes (Austin Basis), Vincent has been able to guard his terrible secret — when he is enraged, he becomes a terrifying beast, who’s unable to control his super-strength and heightened senses. Cat is stunned when Vincent admits that he was the “animal” who saved her on the night of her mother’s murder. Vincent doesn’t admit the whole truth however. He is emotionally tied to Cat and has been watching over her since that night.

Cat agrees to protect Vincent’s identity in return for any insight he may have into her mother’s murder. Thus begins a complex relationship between Cat and Vincent, who understand that their connection is extremely dangerous for both of them. Cat’s secret obsession with Vincent puts a strain on her relationship with everyone else around her, and Tess is especially troubled by the feeling that Cat is keeping something from her.

Vincent soon becomes a secret but important part of Cat’s detective work. During the years that he’s spent hiding in the shadows, watching over Cat and other innocents, Vincent has learned a lot about the darkest parts of the city and its residents. His sharpened instincts, incredible strength and human compassion become invaluable to Cat as she works to bring criminals to justice.

As she slowly comes to terms with Vincent’s monstrous alter-ego, Cat senses that she can trust him in ways she hasn’t been able to trust any other man. Despite the obstacles between them, she realizes that she’s safer with him than anywhere else.

    hey it is vasileios the internet on tvseries i red that cathrin learn that maybe her mom is still alive.that is for me very good screept for to start the second season and cathrin’s mom must protect her doughetrs and vincent from the muirfield and the police station.perhaps she has the cure for vincent but maybe it is better not accept the cure because with that mutation vincent has the power to protect cathrin and her sister and later in the second season her mother. i wonder vincent with that serum is it able to be invisible when he wants to? because his dna is changing maybe he has the ability to become invisible by his will.and i thing that vincent if he becomes normal again maybe will not have the strenght to protect cathrin and her sister and her mother.the screept that cathren’s mom maybe is still alive is very good for starting the second season. please contineu for the second season with that flexible screept you have many ideas for many seasons.i am a big FUN of the series.thank you very much.CONGRATULATION.

    I have NEVER been this obsessed about a show in all my life. I LOVE it! I’m in Australia and have to find links online to watch which is really frustrating plus I can’t buy episodes on iTunes or Amazon because of geographical restrictions. Grrrrr. Please don’t cancel – this show sucks you in like no other and needs time to nurture the fandom. Make it available to buy online in Australia PLEASE!

    OMG – Please CW don’t cancel this terrific show – I just love Beauty & The Beast and will be devastated if it is cancelled. I really look forward to watching each episode on Thursdays – it is my favorite t v show. The show has everything and each episode is very interesting and exciting. Please don’t leave the fans of BATB hanging – it would be a mistake to drop this fantastic series. I’m so looking forward to seeing BATB for a Season 2. The CW has renewed some shows that are dogs and BATB is an excellent series, well acted and well written. Looking forward to BATB SEASON 2.

    This show has improved SO MUCH from the first few episodes. I wish viewers would give it a try now as I think they’d be pleasantly surprised. You’d think you were watching a different show!

    Fans on social media are behind the show 100% and if you read various TV critics reviews they have improved week by week, even converting the majority that had written the series off after the pilot.

    This improved show deserves a second season…
