The alphabet network has decided to order one more installment of Castle for season five. ABC had planned to air 23 episodes but will now have 24 instead.
According to EW, the additional episode will allow the network to air one less rerun in April.
This won’t be the first time that Castle has been given a “jumbo” season. Both seasons two and three had 24 installments while season four had 23. The comedy-drama series debuted in March 2009 as a mid-season replacement show so the first season had just 10 episodes.
What do you think? Do you like the extra big Castle seasons? Has this season been one of the show’s best?
