Castle: ABC Show Renewed for Seventh Season

Castle and Beckett are staying on the case. ABC has renewed the Castle TV series for a seventh season.

The show’s current ratings are down slightly when compared to last year’s but it’s still the network’s most-watched scripted series. Season six is averaging a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.96 million total viewers.

On Castle, Rick (Nathan Fillion) and Kate’s (Stana Katic) relationship continues to evolve while they continue to solve crimes. The show also features the talents of Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Jon Huertas, Tamala Jones, Seamus Dever, and Penny Johnson Jerald.

What do you think? Are you glad that Castle has been renewed once again? How long do you think this show should run?

    I have been a fan of CASTLE from the beginning and have sorely missed staying current in the past 4 years of living in Brazil. However, we have been receiving old seasonal episodes for some time now, and I have been able to keep up. Now we are getting the most recent season each Monday night. I was in the USA in April and saw a couple that I have now seen here too.

    This is probably one of the best teaming of a perfect ensemble I have ever seen on TV, with the Beckett/Esposito/Ryan group at the police department and the Castle/Martha/Alexis family, now with Kate.

    The usual result of a marriage and reduction of the underlying sexual tension seems to lead to more boring sorry lines. I sincerely hope this does not happen with CASTLE. There is a terrific precedent, which I hope could be a strong ongoing reason to continue the series: THE THIN MAN. I am sure that no one on the CASTLE team is unaware of Nick and Nora Charles and the sensation they created over more than a decade of films in the 30s and 40s.

    Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic are a pairing with the same genius as William Powell and Myrna Loy. They both have a good sense of comic timing to mesh perfectly with the dramatic tension of the plot line. Keeping his in mind can give fresh approach to any possible future the series might have. I hope that ratings alone will not cancel this series, or if so, that a rework, like the dude ranch investigation can keep it alive for a few more years.
