What do you think? Do you still like the Castle TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?

Keep Castle going. We have lost so many shows that were really good and enjoyed by many fans. Disappointing if we lose this one too.

Castle is definitely one of best shows on TV. Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion are very talented actors. Stana deserved to win the Peoples Choice Award. The writing for this show is exceptional. I hope there is a season 6.

Castle is one of the best series that can be watched by audiences of all ages. There should by a season 6,7,8,9, etc. However, I noticed that ABC really doesn’t promote the show the way they do other shows and to me that is puzzling. I for one would like to know their thought process on this.

Castle still has among the most innovative, best-written plots of the genre on TV. They pay attention to the details, and to plot continuity, which is all too rare today. It’s a great series: keep it going!

Caskett fans keep watching Castle to boost it’s ratings. We don’t want ABC to cancel this great show. Keep it on ABC! We love Nathan Fillion & Stana Katic’s chemistry! Season 5 is so good now that they put these two together. The cast is simply amazing!
