It’s a bitter-sweet moment for the fans of Beauty and the Beast. The fourth season of the popular CW series is on its way, but this is going to be the final season of Beauty and the Beast. The show hasn’t been renewed by the CW after its fourth season.
CW wasn’t being open about the release date of Beauty and the Beast Season 4 and it was only recently that they revealed that the final season of the series is under production. Fans were scared that even the fourth season will be scraped since CW wasn’t giving any concrete information about Season 4 being released.
However, CarterMatt had revealed that the show is on for the fourth season and that Beauty and the Beast Season 4 is already in the production phase and it is slated for a summer release. This pleased the fan since now they will at least have a proper ending and will have all their queries answered in the 13 episodes.
The cast and crew of Beauty and the Beast Season 4 recently wrapped up production and it was a day of misery for them. It’s been a good run for them and the sudden cancellation did come to them by shock.
Christian Post reported that Beauty and the Beast meant a lot for the fans as well as the cast members of the series. The popularity of the show actually propelled the career of most of the actors in the series. This brought Beauty and the Beast very close to their hearts and it was, but obvious that they would feel sad biding goodbye to the series after Beauty and the Beast Season 4.
The chunk of Beauty and the Beast Season 4 was shot in Canada, particularly Montreal and the cast, including Jay Ryan, who plays the beast Vincent Keller on the show, tweeted after the show wrapped and expressed his gratitude to Montreal for being such a great host.
There are photos galore on the social media sites where the cast has shared photos from the set of the very last season and have shared their emotions on coming to the end of the road.
Even Austin Basis who plays the role of J.T. Forbes in Beauty and the Beast Season 4 said that the coming end of the series was a bitter sweet experience. He is obviously feeling sad the series is wrapping up with its very last season, but it is a positive change because it helps the actors to grow in their career and look for better opportunities.
By announcing that Beauty and the Beast will not be renewed beyond Season 4 beforehand, CW did a good thing. It enabled the actors to start looking for a job while they were also shooting for the very last season. This gave them ample opportunity to look around and select their options and not have to rush into something else.
Beauty and the Beast Season 3 didn’t fare well with the fans because they were missing the chemistry between Vincent Keller and Cat Chandler (Kristin Kreuk). The chemistry between the two and the developing romance was what kept the series afloat. However, the creators decided to bring in a lot of mythological aspects into the plot and this shifted the focus from Vincent and Cat.
