CW sets ‘Beauty and the Beast’ season 4, TNT cancels ‘Ground Floor’

Good and bad news lands across the televison world as fans of The Beauty and the Beast will rejoince knowing that The CW has approved a fourth season of the popular fantasy. Meanwhile, over at TNT, Ground Floor gets the axe and the show won’t get a season three.

Deadline notes that before season 3 begins it gets a renewal: “Beauty And The Beast has done well online and is a big international seller for its studio, CW sibling CBS TV Studios. Plus, Beauty And The Beast, a remake of the 1987 series, has been a sentimental favorite of CW boss Mark Pedowitz as it was one of the very first concepts he pursued after taking the reins of the network.”

Jay Ryan Kristen Kreuk Beauty and the Beast bannerStar Austin Basis, while talking with Dispatch Radio when season 3 was announced, explained that the network examined the show beyond just traditional TV ratings.

With the Beast renewal, the CW has now picked up a whopping 9 dramas for next season, lowering its needs of picking up new scripted series for next season, notes Deadline.

TBS has made it official, confirming that it has opted not to renew the comedy series Ground Floor for a third season.

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.
