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?
