Castle: ABC “Super Optimistic” About Show’s Future

Castle canceled or renewed?The ratings for Castle were down last year but the show is still a very viable performer for ABC. Though the show’s demo numbers are just okay, Castle is the network’s most watched drama.

Production on season six was recently shut down when series star Nathan Fillion didn’t show up for work. It seems the actor’s in the midst of a contract dispute with ABC Studios and wants a four-day work week.

Still, ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee feels good about the show’s future, saying, “We feel very strong about the future of Castle. Nathan [Fillion] and Stana [Katic] are fantastic actors and we’re super optimistic.”

What do you think? How long should Castle continue? Should this be the last year or should the series keep going after that? Is it still a compelling show to watch?

    My husband and I watch it every week or record it. We enjoy the detectives working together with a romantic twist. The humor shown between the characters makes it funny but also it is a action series. Sorry when it goes off the air. Love everyone on the show.

    I really love this show and did not know it was scheduled to be cancelled. If it is going to continue (which I hope is the case). On what date will the new season begin.

    I love this show. I did not know it was scheduled to be cancelled. If it is staying I was trying to find out what date the new season begins.

    I certainly hope you don’t cancel Castle. I absolutely love that show and it’s the only show my husband and I actually watch together. It’s funny and there’s lots of action and drama. It’s an all around great adult show. I can’t understand why a great show like Castle could be taken off and yet shows like the Simpson’s can stay on for years. That’s great for those who have the mind of a child, but what about us grownups?
