On Beauty and the Beast, a beautiful detective (Kristin Kreuk), navigates her evolving relationship with a handsome doctor (Jay Ryan) who becomes a terrifying beast. Others in the cast are Austin Basis, Brian White, Max Brown, and Nina Lisandrello.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this show! Why would anyone want to cancel it?! I’m 19 and am so interested. Love the story, action and especially the romance. I hope it goes on for many more seasons!

    I have watched many different versions of the Beauty and the Beast love story and have enjoyed them all but CW’s version is very well done. I have been a fan from the beginning and I am now 57 years old. I don’t know why anyone would want to see this show cancelled. If they don’t like it they should watch something else. A lot of people over 50 watch the show and really like the cast.

      I totally agree with you. I do not watch the vampire shows. That is my choice. But I do not make comments to cancel them. I love this show and I am 67. The actors work so well together and a female has the lead heroine role. They also have good story plots, buta sometimes tahey finish them too fast. They could extend to the next show. And I am so glad lying and conniving Gabe is gone. I wish Sam could have been on longer. He was quite a character.

    This is the best show on tv. The only one that comes close is The Black List. Jay and Kristin are the absolute best. Everything about the show tops all the others. The direction, the writing(I would like to see more love scenes, after all it is about them) the supporting cast and the overall quality of the show is wonderful. And why don’t you guys think anyone over 50 watches tv? Ask your director, I think he is over 50. Besides we have the money!!

      I’m 62 and this is my absolute favorite show. Lots of my age watch, we’re just not the target demographic. Can’t understand why people that don’t like the show have to be ugly and want it off the air. I don’t like a lot of what’s on television but I don’t tell those viewers that it’s awful and should be cancelled. Get a life, watch what you like and let us watch what we like. B&TB is awesome entertainment and I hope this 3rd season is more like season one.

        Beasties of all ages love BATB! I’m 70 and have watched it from the beginning, loving the story line, the cast and awesome crew that keep the series going. Especially love the chemistry between Jay and Kristin. Love it!!

        I have posted this same comment several times. I believe the appeal universal – at the heart it‘s a love story. Not just between a man and woman but between friends. I’m 62 and my mom is 86 we watch it together. I just don’t understand why everyone isn’t watching! Thank you for S4, thanks to all who watch #BATBB.
