BEAUTY AND THE BEAST – Season Two Premiere Monday, Oct. 7 at 9/8c on The CW

The CW’s breakout fan-favorite BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will make its New York Comic-Con debut by showing an advance screening of the second episode, “Kidnapped.” The screening will be followed by a discussion with series stars Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) and Jay Ryan (Terra Nova) along with executive producers Jennifer Levin (Without a Trace) and Sherri Cooper (Brothers and Sisters), moderated by Matt Mitovich from TVLine.com. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, winner of the 2012 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama, is a modern twist on the well-known story. In the second season, Detective Catherine Chandler (Kreuk) reunites with Vincent Keller (Ryan) after last season’s abduction – but not in the way she planned. He’s changed: his scar has disappeared, his memory has been wiped clean and he returns as a supercharged beast on a mysterious mission. Catherine needs to unravel the reasons behind Vincent’s change if she has any hope of recovering their epic love, while also trying to solve the secrets that swirl around her own life.
