Despite having The Vampire Diaries as a lead-in, the ratings for The CW‘s Beauty and the Beast declined quite a bit last season. How will the show do this year? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned to find out.
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.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

I’ve followed BATB from the beginning and love it. Season 4 will have 13 episodes airing in Canada and the US summer of 2016, June or July. Kristin Kreuk will never become a beast and not sure if she and Jay’s characters will ever have children, but probably not. According to some postings, S4 will be all about Cat and Vincent happy and married, but it wouldn’t be compelling without upsets and trauma in their lives. Beasties in North America are currently trying to get a movement going to continue this series to a Season 5. We love this series!

I totally agree with all of your ideas.
hey there.i am fanatic of the tv series (beauty and the beast 2012) and i am interesting to know if the fourth season will have again 22 episodes like the season 1& 2.i hope the producers and ron koslow to create 22 episodes and please renew the show for a fourth seaon with also 22 episodes like the series (supernatural).thank you very much.now when vincent and kat was married i want to see their children having secret powers.if that hapen it would be perfect.thank you.
I agree the producers didn’t not rule out Kat and Vincent kids quite yet they will need to have Beauty and the beast Pannel with cast and crew
Hopefully soon the producers will rule out what Katherine and Vincent future holds and from their we will see Kat and Vincent babies this will happen in sixth season or seventh seas on
due to the fact that the producers main producers don’t know what
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.
Really enjoy this show and love the cast
Don’t faint!!! BATB will return on Thursday, May 21, 2015. 8/7c CW.
I can hardly contain myself with joy. Let’s all roar!!!!
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’ve been waiting for this to come back on in 2015 so I really hope it’s not canceled!
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.
