‘Beauty and the Beast’ Executive Producer Previews Upcoming Storylines


Zap2It recently chatted with Beauty and the Beast Exec Producer Sherri Cooper and got the scoop on the recent mid-season finale!

Bridesmaid Up!

Why did you choose to end “Bridesmaid Up!” with so many cliffhangers?

Sherri Cooper: It feels like that is a perfect way to end this fairytale episode. You think she’s just going in the car and chasing down her guy… But of course it’s “Beauty and the Beast.” There’s always danger at every turn. And she didn’t get to say what she wanted to say to him.

It was a two-parter when we wrote this one and the next one. And of course, we’re keeping up the curiosity.

Is anyone going to start to figure out anything about what’s going on between Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan)?

Sherri Cooper: One of them is going to be let in a little more to what Catherine is going through.

We saw that Tess (Nina Lisandrello) and Evan (Max Brown) began the search to find J.T.’s (Austin Basis) identity in this episode, but they didn’t get close enough to find him. Is that a plot that’s going to play out over future episodes?

Sherri Cooper: Yes, totally! We are planning a fun run with Evan. He’s going to try to track down J.T. We will be sort of wondering, is he going to find this guy? Is going to find Vincent? What is J.T. going to do if he does find him? We’re going to put all of that in when we come back.
