It’s already been announced that there won’t a fifth season of Beauty and the Beast on The CW so there’s no danger of the series being cancelled any longer. Will the ratings rise for the final season or, will they drop lower? Stay tuned.
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. Now that they’re married, will this couple find their “happily ever after”? Others in the cast are Austin Basis, Nina Lisandrello, Nicole Gale Anderson, and Michael Roark.
