Patrick Swayze's 'Beast' Canceled

The Beast
A&E drama "The Beast" will not return for a second season, according to Daily Variety.

The show had a rough start because Patrick Swazye was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The actor was unable to promote the series during a Television Critics Association panel in January after he was hospitalized for pneumonia.
