So much for TVBTN calling us "Nonsense" lol.

THE THIRD SEASON OF "Beauty And The Beast"


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.


Update: 17:35 It also appears that BATB Costume Designer, Catherine Ashton has since deleted her original tweet confirming the Season 4 Renewal.


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.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
