In a surprising turn of events, the CW announced today that fan favorite Beauty and the Beast has received an early renewal for a fourth season! Season 3 was widely expected to be the show’s last after narrowly being renewed last year and being pushed back to a summer run. TPTB must like what they’ve seen of this season, however, because they ordered season 4 months before season 3 premieres on May 21.
Season 3 Synopsis:
Cat and Vincent 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 season 3 premieres Thursday, May 21 at 8/7c on the CW.
