So much for TVBTN calling us "Nonsense" lol.

THE THIRD SEASON OF "Beauty And The Beast"

PREMIERES THURSDAY, MAY 21 ON THE CW

The CW Orders a Fourth Season of "Beauty And The Beast" for 2015-16

February 13, 2015 (Burbank, CA) — The third season of fan favorite drama Beauty And The Beast will begin its 13-episode run on Thursday, May 21 (8:00-9:00 pm ET) on The CW Network. In addition, The CW announced today that Beauty And The Beast has also been renewed a fourth season, which will air later the 2015-2016 season.

As season three begins, Cat (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) are able to focus on their love, finally free from Muirfield, manhunts and beasts. However, that love will be tested as new and more dangerous threats await. When they learn that innocent victims are being used to test the boundaries of the impossible, Cat and Vincent will uncover a deeper conspiracy, one which Vincent can fight only by turning to the beast he carries within. But unleashing the beast will risk Vincent’s life – along with his and Cat's love – as they struggle to build a normal life together.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Take 5 Productions/Whizbang Films with executive producers Brad Kern (“Charmed”), Bill Haber (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Thurgood”), Paul J. Witt (“A Better Life”) & Tony Thomas (“A Better Life”), Ron Koslow (“Moonlight”), Frank Siracusa (“The Yard”) and John Weber (“The Borgias”), with Sherri Cooper (“Brothers and Sisters”) & Jennifer Levin (“Without A Trace,” “Felicity”) as consultants.

Update: 13th February Another day, another update :) It appears that the original author of the initial article over at Playback is sticking to her story about the Season 4 Renewal. See the response below.


Update: 18:43 Hitower Music, James Guttridge and Sean Hosein, composers for the CW series Beauty and the Beast just posted this.




Update: 17:43 Catherine Ashton has now deleted her tweet about the renewal being for 13 Episodes.

So it seems they all jumped the gun a little quickly and CW are trying to limit the damage. We'll keep you updated as we get any more news/info, but like when we broke the news of The Flash renewal which everyone claimed was wrong, a few weeks later we got the official announcement.

Update: 17:00 It looks like the original site that posted the news has update their page as you can see from the screenshot below by removing the Season 4 Renewal news





Update: 13:00 Beauty and the Beast has been Officially Renewed according to BATB Costume Designer, Catherine Ashton, for what is believed to be a 13 Episode Season.




Earlier today an article appeared on Canadian trade website Playback.



This was followed by a Tweet from the same company below.



What is interesting here is that this above tweet was then Re-Tweeted by Jill Carter, one of the BATB directors giving it some increased credibility.



Austin Basis of BATB was then asked if he knew anything about it on twitter to which he responded he was not aware.



So either Playback are misinformed, or they jumped the gun on the announcement before even the cast/crew were informed.
