Who is joining the world of “Beauty and the Beast” next? This story is all about new additions, and we have some that have been confirmed, and some that are still in the casting process. Let’s not waste any time here, and sink our teeth straight into what you can expect to see when the show premieres on The CW starting on Monday, October 7.
Aaron Keller – This is the only character that currently has an actor attached to the role. According to TVLine, “Jane by Design” star Bryan Dechart has been cast in this role. Not only is he going to be a relative of Vincent (Jay Ryan), but he is an arson investigator with a reputation for getting a little heated himself. Take that for what you will, but this could be an important character in the first half of the season.
Zach – A former soldier with a touch of arrogance about him, and is going to try and execute a revenge plot facilitated by taking advantage of a situation involving Vincent.
Beth – A producer at a news station, which means that she could be someone rather dangerous when it comes to broadcasting supernatural happenings to the masses. In this world, you have to steer clear of the media if you want to keep yourself safe.
These three join returning star Sendhil Ramamurthy, and one of the biggest challenges for “Beauty and the Beast” moving forward is simply going to be keeping up with a certain level of success. It no longer will have “The Vampire Diaries” as a lead-in, and Mondays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern have not been great for ratings as of late.
