It looks as though A&E drama "The Beast" will not be coming back for a second season.

Sources indicate the Patrick Swayze starrer about a rogue FBI cop in Chicago has been canceled after 13 episodes, with the final installment having aired on April 23.

A&E told Daily Variety that no decision has been made.

Ratings were soft for the Sony-produced series that got off to a rough start when Swayze was diagnosed with cancer. At the Television Critics Assn. panel for the series in January in which he was supposed to appear and promote the show, he was hospitalized with pneumonia.
