While also wanting to feel he has a purpose in life, Vincent has been playing rescuer to people in danger at night.

These vigilante-type ways made him cross paths with Catherine in the past, and now a tentative relationship between them has begun.

The romantic side of the show should attract fans of the late 1980s-era “Beauty and the Beast” series.

“What we are doing is taking some ingredients from “Beauty and the Beast” and baking a totally different cake. So, I guess, what they will really like the taste of is the romance, the romantic element, which is gonna be a strong part of the series, which basically is at the heart of any “Beauty and the Beast” story, I believe,” Ryan said.

But romance fans aren't the only ones who will be able to find something they like about the show.

“Also, there's a really good sort of action segment to the show, which I think any sort of audience will be struck by the quality of that for a television show. So, hopefully, there's something for everyone,” Ryan said.
