Patrick Swayze series 'The Beast' canceled, according to sources

Posted on

Variety reports that sources say A&E has canceled its Patrick Swayze series The Beast after airing the 13-episode first season, which ended on April 23. Reps for the network are not confirming the report, however. Ratings were weak for the show, about a rogue cop in Chicago. There has been speculation all along that it would not be renewed due to Swayze’s critical battle with pancreatic cancer.
