Beauty and the Beast: First Look!

at . Comments

Beauty and the Beast isn't just coming to The CW this fall, it's arriving in the cushiest time slot the network could provide for a new series:

Immediately following The Vampire Diaries.

This modern retelling of the classic fairy tale stars Kristin Kreuk as Catherine Chandler, a homicide detective whose own life was saved nine years ago by… something? Someone?

She later learns the kind act was committed by Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan), a veteran presumed dead who has actually been in hiding due to experiments the Army conducted on him and his men. Intrigued? Watch the following clip:

The CW has also released a sneak peek at Arrow. It looks positively awesome.
