Richard Castle will be back next season. Nathan Fillion recently signed a new contract and now ABC has renewed the Castle TV show for an eighth season. (It’s currently unclear if Fillion’s co-star Stana Katic will renew her contract as well.)
On Castle, the relationship of author Richard Castle (Fillion) and Detective Kate Beckett (Katic) is anything but smooth. The rest of the cast includes Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever, Tamala Jones, Molly Quinn, Penny Johnson Jerald, and Susan Sullivan.
The seventh season of Castle has been down by about 15% season-to-season (currently averaging a 1.58 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.47 million viewers) but it’s still the network’s fourth most-watched scripted series.
What do you think? Are you glad that the Castle TV show has been renewed? Should this be the final year? Would you watch without Katic?
