After eight seasons, ABC has canceled the popular series Castle. The news comes in the wake of the studio behind the series, ABC Studios, signing new deals with Nathan Fillion, Seamus Dever, and Jon Huertas. It also comes nearly a month after the studio/network announced it was booting co-lead Stana Katic and series regular Tamala Jones ahead of a potential season nine.
Did the firestorm that erupted with Katic’s departure (and subsequent innuendos that also dropped) play a role in reversing the network’s decision? That story may never come out.
But after eight years, it’s been a good run. I wish everyone (yes, everyone) associated with the show the best in the their future endeavors. And yes, the website will keep chugging along.
