Sources close to production told Variety that, once Beauty and the Geek 5 airs its season finale this month, the show will be cancelled, at least for the time being, with the possibility of it being revived at some point years from now when it’s had enough time so that it seems fresh again.
Not a surprising concern because this show has gone through some unnecessary and lame twists that, despite the intent to keep things fresh, just ended up spoiling the show because they were poorly executed.
The network is said to possibly reconsider if the producers can come up with a twist on the current format. It had been previously suggested that they should try a show with nerdy girls and buff guys, and the concept of focusing on age is being thrown around.
So what would The CW replace Beauty and the Geek with? At this point, I’m not sure it even really matters any more.
