Beauty and the Beast Cancelled

The CW's Beauty and the Beast to End Its Run After Season 4

A tale as old as time… is clocking out.

The CW has announced that Beauty and the Beast will end its run after Season 4, which is currently wrapping production and will air at midseason/summer 2016 (exact date TBA).

Starring Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan in the title roles, the supernatural-tinged take on the romantic fairy tale averaged 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 demo rating during its freshman run (which had a buzzy Vampire Diaries for a lead-in), but during Season 3 (where it self-started summertime Thursdays) it mustered just 880K and a 0.2.

Does this end date sound about right to you, Beasties? Or are you disappointed there won’t be a Season 5?
