Beauty & the Beast is an American television series, very loosely inspired by the 1987 CBS series of the same name, created by Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin that premiered October 11, 2012 on The CW.[1] Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan star in the title roles alongside Austin Basis, Nina Lisandrello and Nicole Gale Anderson with former cast members Sendhil Ramamurthy, Brian White, Max Brown and Amber Skye Noyes.

The show has been honored with acknowledgements from the People's Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and Saturn Awards as well as the ASC Awards and the Leo Awards.[2]

The series will return for a third season on May 21, 2015.[3] On February 13, 2015, the series was renewed for a fourth season, ahead of the season three premiere.[4]

Plot[edit]

Catherine Chandler, a law student, witnesses her mother being shot the same night she is saved from her mother's murderers by a supposed beast. Nine years later, and now working as a detective for the NYPD, a case leads her to discover that Vincent Keller, an ex-soldier believed to have been killed in action during military service, is actually alive. As Catherine gets to know him, she starts finding out more about her mother's murder and about who (and what) Vincent really is. At the same time, they get to know one another and eventually fall in love.

Main cast[edit]

Kristin Kreuk plays the role of Catherine.
  • Kristin Kreuk as Catherine 'Cat' Chandler: The series opens with Cat witnessing her mother's murder; she is saved by a mysterious creature (Vincent). After her mother's death, Catherine set aside her ambition to become a lawyer and sought a career as a homicide detective with the NYPD. After learning about Vincent and Muirfield and all the times he had saved her life, she joins J.T. in protecting his secret, and eventually learns that her mother had once worked for Muirfield. During Season 2 she forms feelings for Gabriel and has a brief but serious relationship with him after she grows to distrust Vincent and also discovers that her Ancestor Rebecca once had a love affair with a Beast named Alistair, almost mirroring hers and Vincent's, that ended in tragedy.
Jay Ryan plays the role of Vincent.
  • Jay Ryan as Vincent Keller: A former doctor who enlisted after his two brothers died in the September 11 attacks; while in Afghanistan, he was part of an experimental unit of soldiers who were subjects in a supersoldier program that was terminated. He is the only known survivor following the termination of members of his unit with extreme prejudice. Vincent's DNA was mutated and he developed the ability to transform into a creature very human-like in appearance but with a beastly mind; he turns into the creature whenever he is distressed. He checked in on Catherine once a year after her mother's murder, and went on to protect her in his beastly form many times, often inadvertently leaving behind DNA evidence. By season 2 Vincent had been captured by a faction of the FBI intent on ending Muirfield and reengineering his DNA with new abilities, a more controllable beast nature and even repairing his facial scar, as well as brainwashing him into doing their bidding by wiping his memory, which Catherine was able to restore. Still Cat, J.T, Tess and Gabriel assisted Vincent in his directed extermination of other Beasts that had escaped Muirfield fueled by the hope that they would be able to find a cure for Vincent. Though at first he lives in the shadows by faking his death to protect both his loved ones and his secret, near mid season 2, with the other beasts and Muirfield gone, he returns to the public eye after prodding by both Catherine and Tori, and gaining media attention by being declared a war hero.
  • Austin Basis as J.T. Forbes: Vincent's childhood friend and a professor at a university in New York. He hid Vincent from the men who have been hunting him for a decade, out of guilt as he felt responsible for what happened to Vincent since J.T. was the one that had signed him up for the Muirfield program under the assumption he would be protecting Vincent from the more dangerous warzones by doing so. After having a drunken fling with her, he develops strong feelings for Tess and the two start to date.
  • Nina Lisandrello as Tess Vargas: Catherine's partner and closest friend who eventually discovers and reluctantly agrees to keep Vincent's secret, though eventually she learns to trust and form a friendship with Vincent, if only for Cat's sake. She had an affair with her boss, Joe Bishop, yet later begins a relationship with J.T.
  • Nicole Gale Anderson as Heather Chandler (recurring, seasons 1-2; regular, season 3):[5] Catherine's younger sister and former roommate, who moves to Miami to further her career, but later returns to New York engaged to be married. When she first met Vincent she immediately hated him, but near the end of Season 2 Catherine admits, with Vincent's blessing, their secret. At first Heather is angered and horrified by her sisters lover, however she has a change of heart when Vincent willingly risks his life to save hers.
  • Sendhil Ramamurthy as Gabriel Lowen (seasons 1-2): A former assistant district attorney who suspected that Catherine was hiding something. Catherine later discovered that he was experimented on by Muirfield as a child and possessed a much more violent and uncontrollable bestial nature than Vincent, which could only be controlled by medication, of which was formerly administered by Catherine's mother, his only true caretaker at Muirfield. By Season 2, his beast side had been killed and he had replaced Joe Bishop as the head of Catherine and Tess's precinct and over time fell in love with Catherine. However this love lead to his corruption when Catherine eventually realized that her feelings for Gabriel could never match her love for Vincent. Covering his jealousy under the false assumption that he was protecting Catherine, Gabriel relentlessly headed a manhunt for the newly convicted fugitive Vincent, leading him to madness. Overtime he would goes as far as killing a witness to one of his Beastly Murders from the year prior, assisting in the kidnapping of Heather to lure Vincent out of hiding and finally re-injecting himself with the serum to turn him back into a Beast after which he murdered Catherine's friend Beth, a journalist who had been working with Gabriel to unveil Vincent's secret to the public, by ripping out her heart, much like Vincent had previously done to Tori's father after he had beast out, to frame Vincent for the murder. He ironically met his end at the hands of Catherine of all people who stabbed him through the heart with a pool cue in self-defense.[6][7]
  • Brian White as Joe Bishop (season 1): Catherine and Tess's former commanding officer. He cheated on his wife with Tess. He is eventually fired for his vendetta against his brother's killer, which distracted him from his job. Originally credited in a guest role, the character was promoted to series regular by the second episode. In the series' second season premiere it was announced that the character of Joe Bishop lost his job as commanding officer, and actor Brian White's name was removed from the show's opening credits.
  • Max Brown as Dr. Evan Marks (season 1): Police morgue medical examiner who worked with Catherine and had a flirtatious relationship with her. Evan worked with Muirfield to capture Vincent out of a mixture of fear and jealousy for Catherine.
  • Amber Skye Noyes as Tori Windsor (season 2):[8] The late socialite daughter of a Muirfield-enhanced business magnate, one of Vincent's assassination targets. She was unaware of her father's Beast nature until she saw him transform while he fought with Vincent, and Vincent rescued her when her father attacked her. To her surprise she later began to display Beast abilities herself, and quickly formed an intimate bond with Vincent based on their shared nature. She tried to form a deeper wedge between the feuding and separated Vincent and Cat because of this attraction and later lost her life trying to prove herself to Vincent. She died in his arms apologizing and blessing Vincent's love for Catherine.

Recurring cast[edit]

  • Rob Stewart as Thomas Chandler (season 1): Catherine and Heather's father. In season 1, Thomas married Brooke, a woman many years his junior.

  • Rachel Skarsten as Brooke Chandler (season 1): Thomas' widow and Catherine and Heather's step-mother.
  • Bridget Regan as Alex Salter (season 1): Former fiancée of Vincent Keller.

Alex tried to rekindle their relationship, but struggled with Vincent's condition and realized that he has feelings for Catherine. With Catherine's help, Alex went into hiding from Muirfield.
  • Christian Keyes as Darius Bishop (season 1): Joe Bishop's younger brother. He briefly dated Heather. He was accidentally killed by Vincent; his death caused Joe to launch a manhunt against Vincent.

  • Shantel VanSanten as Tyler (season 1): Gabriel's late girlfriend who also helped him deal with his beastly side. She had a deep hatred of Muirfield due to both Gabe's suffering as well as her own unrevealed past with the organization, and was willing to do anything to undo her boyfriend's condition.
  • Ted Whittall as Bob Reynolds (seasons 1-2): An FBI agent running a personal black operation to eliminate Muirfield and the numerous Beasts it produced. At the end of Season 1 he and his team kidnap Vincent, wiping his memory and using him as an assassin to hunt down other Beasts. He is also Catherine's biological father.

Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin promoting the show at Comic-Con

Conception[edit]

The CW officially began developing the series in September 2011. The project was described as "a modern-day romantic love story with a procedural twist," unlike the original series which was a romantic drama with mystery and suspense elements. The show is the first project that new president Mark Pedowitz developed when he joined the network.[10]

Production[edit]

The network ordered a pilot of the series in January 2012.[11] The pilot of the show was filmed in Toronto, Canada from March 22 to April 2, 2012.[12] It was picked up by The CW on May 11, 2012, and was scheduled to premiere during the 2012–13 television season.[13] Filming of the first season continued in Toronto from July 27 and production on the thirteenth episode was completed on December 21, 2012.[14] On November 9, 2012, a full season was ordered.[15]

On April 26, 2013, Beauty & the Beast was renewed for a second season.[16] Filming of Beauty & the Beast was moved to New York City, NY from the second season. On May 8, 2014, Beauty & the Beast was renewed for a third season.[17] On February 13, 2015, The CW renewed the series for a fourth season, before the third season began airing.[4]

Casting[edit]

Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan portray the titular beauty and beast

Casting announcements began in February 2012, when Kristin Kreuk was first cast in the lead role of Catherine Chandler.[18] Austin Basis was then cast in the role of J.T. Forbes, Vincent's best friend.[19] Nina Lisandrello and Nicole Gale Anderson were then added to the cast, with Lisandrello landing the role of Tess Vargas, Catherine's partner and best friend. Anderson signed on to the recurring role of Heather Chandler, Catherine's younger sister.[20] Jay Ryan joined the series in the second lead role, Vincent Keller (the character was originally called Vincent Koslow, though in the original series, Vincent had no last name).[21] Max Brown signed on for the role of Dr. Evan Marks, a medical examiner who has feelings for Catherine.[22] Brian White was the last actor to sign onto the series. White joined in the role of Joe Bishop, Catherine and Tess' commanding officer at the NYPD, who becomes romantically involved with Tess. White's character of Joe Bishop was not included in the second season of the series; the story line was that Bishop lost his job because he focused too much attention on finding the killer of his brother instead of performing his duties.[23]

Reception[edit]

The series was given a 33 out of 100 score on Metacritic, indicating "generally unfavorable" reviews from 19 critics.[24] Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly gave the pilot of Beauty & the Beast a C- grade, stating that it lacks the same charm that the 1980s drama had, and that 'The Beast' is more of a Hulk rather than an actual beast.[25] David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle called the series an "overheated, badly written, wretchedly acted and unconvincing drama, which makes mincemeat out of the traditional beauty and the beast fairy tale."[26] Mary McNamara of Los Angeles Times also made similar observations but praised Nina Lisandrello who still remains as the only cast member in the show to ever receive a positive review. About Lisandrello, McNamara wrote "the only point of light is provided by Catherine's partner, Tess, who, as played with great common-sense appeal by Nina Lisandrello, clearly deserves to be on a better show."[27] More mixed but slightly favorable reviews were provided by David Hinckley of the New York Daily News, who said the series was "such a natural it's downright devilish"[28] and Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times, who stated the "girl-power themes will probably play well to the network's core audience."[29]
