Patrick Swayze-Starring Drama 'The Beast' May Get Cancelled

June 5, 2009 (3:48 am) GMT
After airing the last episode of 'The Beast' in April, A and E has not yet given the announcement regarding the next order.

Mild ratings have prompted A&E to cancel "" after only 13 episodes airing. Although the network has released a statement that no decision has been made yet, a source close to the show told People, "There's no way it was going to happen without Patrick."

"The Beast" is a cop drama starring as FBI veteran training a rookie cop. The latest episode aired on April 23 but the networks has not made announcement whether there will be a second season. For one thing, Swayze is battling pancreatic cancer and was unable to promote the show effectively due to treatments such as chemotherapies. He shot the first season entirely in Chicago last summer but early this year, when the series was about to air, he was admitted to hospital due to pneumonia.

Variety, which first came up with the cancellation story, said that there is a chance that Swayze will be replaced should the series get a renewal. However, there has been no continuation regarding this piece of speculation.
