Q&A SECTION (with Team Watch With Kristin at E! Online)

Question: Excited that Beauty and the Beast was picked up for a second season. Give us some scoop to celebrate! – Jeremy

Team Watch With Kristin: Well, we’re not sure you are going to want to celebrate after we share what executive producer Jennifer Levin told us about the season-one finale. “We are building towards someone that we really care about, their life is in jeopardy,” she teases. “We are building towards a secret being revealed about Cat’s family that is not what you might think.”

That’s it. Enjoy!

PS: There will be no news update tomorrow as I have the day off, taking a much deserved “me day”, but I’ll be back with the news on Thursday.
