Congratulations, VinCat fans!

The CW just announced two pieces of good news for Beauty and the Beast: a premiere date (finally!)...and an early renewal! When it rains it pours, huh?

The network revealed that the third season of fan favorite drama Beauty and the Beast will begin its 13-episode run on Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m.  The just-renewed season four will air later in the 2015-2016 season.

Beasties, does this double announcement make up for the fact that you've had to wait so long for a season three premiere date?!

When season three begins, it's going to be a true Beauty and the Beast fan's dream, as Cat (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) are finally able to focus on their love, free from Muirfield, manhunts and beasts.

But since happiness and peace don't really make for exciting TV, that love will be tested as new and more dangerous threats emerge. When they learn that innocent victims are being used to test the boundaries of the impossible, Cat and Vincent will uncover a deeper conspiracy, one which Vincent can fight "only by turning to the beast he carries within."

But unleashing the beast will risk Vincent's lifealong with his and Cat's loveas they struggle to build a normal life together.

Beauty and the Beast is the ninth show the CW renewed early, along with new shows The Flash and Jane the Virgin and returning shows The Originals, Supernatural, Arrow, The 100, The Vampire Diaries and Reign. The only shows yet to be renewed are Hart of Dixie and new shows iZombie and The Messengers, which haven't premiered yet.

Beauty and the Beast returns Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. on the CW.
