    I love this show and I am completely obsessed with it. It has everything and more. Lack of promotion by the network and allocating a difficult night like Mondays has had huge impact on the show’s rating. The show has huge potential and can go very far. We are blessed withthe best cast & crew and I’m hoping & praying the show will go on for many seasons.

    The writer of this article needs to be brought up to date. Brian White and Max Brown are no longer on the series. Sendhil Ramamurthy and Nicole Anderson have been added into the story. This is an awesome love story, also filled with action and humor. I wish it had been promoted more by the network to increase ratings. Instead, social media has been the forefront to stir interest in this wonderful show. Great actors and a dedicated production crew have made Beauty and the Beast worthwhile watching on Monday nights.

      The article was written at the start of the season and is being updated with the new ratings. When it was written last fall, Brown and White were still listed by CW as being in the cast.

      Renewed, although it is already renewed. S2 differs from S1 in quite a way, but is still trying to maintain the base. Hope S3 will be The Master

    think the 1e season was a lot of fun. the second season was kind of rubish tho in comperison on its own season 2 was ok but season 1 was a lot better quality writing. hope it survives tho and they come with better stuff on season 3

    Hope the show does not get cancelled. I love watching Kristin and Jay. Currently watching the first season on Netflix. Please don’t cancel it. It’s worth keeping it on air… I wish season 2 is already on Netflix as we’ll… Love watching reruns

    Love the show, well written and something finally with a good story line which doesn’t go off in every direction. Watched the first edition of this series which had Linda Hamilton and Ron Pearlman. Wasn’t sure how they would update it but they did a great job and made it just enough new and just enough of the beauty/beast love story.

    This is a good show with great casts. My opinion is that it can be as good as it can be without too many twists and turns. I hope the series won’t be too draggy, as we see so many great series fell apart when they dragged too much which often resulting in the lost of purpose or main concept of the series . Sometimes simple script , not too complicated story with great casts work wonders. And when comes a day of finale, at least it ends with fulfilment and ends with what writers want it to be…better than trying to wrap up the show in few episodes because it didn’t get to extend for another season..or worse, leave the series as it is.
