Audrina Patridge going public with Tal Cooperman was actually not the most exciting news from the weekend.

Patrick Swayze - who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March - is successfully battling his disease and heading back to work!

A&E has ordered 13 episodes of The Beast, a show in which Swayze portrays an unorthodox FBI veteran who trains a new partner while being pursued by a secret Internal Affairs team.

Cancer, Shmancer! Patrick Swayze is going back to work.

"I have searched for quite a long time to find a character that is this multi-layered, unpredictable and downright entertaining, as well as a project this current and cutting-edge," Swayze said in a statement.

We wish him the best.
