The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

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?

I watch very little network TV, after seeing Castle, I bought all four seasons. My wife and I spend our spare time watching the episodes. It is clearly the brightest show on TV. As soon as season five is available, I will watch that as well. I watch faithfully every monday night, and cross my fingers for a season six

Please keep Castle on! It is the only adult show on television that is worth watching. It combines a story with a detective mystery. It shows a strong woman which is hard to find on television today. There is nothing for baby boomers to watch on television anymore. Please keep it on!

I’m watching another castle episode. You have to renew this for a sixth season. This show is 10 times better than 90% of the shows on tv. Keep it going…

I LOVE Castle! I just started watching it this season (caught up on the first 4 seasons over the summer), so of course I want to see it next season and at least one more season after that. Though I will admit I wanted more romantic moments out of this season now that Castle and Beckett are a couple, but I’m not so disappointed that I would give up on it.

I look forward to this show every week. It’s the only good thing about a Monday. I love the swordplay between Nathan and Stana. Andrew Marlowe is a fabulous storyteller. Please renew this show. I’ll buy the CD’s and the books; just keep it coming!

If this show is cancelled then America will have very little TV entertainment for this started out as the premier show on television as a fill in! The Boys at ABC better wake up and smell the coffee, for if cancelled Castle will be aired by other networks for sure! Great Cast and great stories of love and intrige for even our children to see! You don’t have to have porn or nudity to get excited for it is in the details unseen or unsaid!

Please please please renew Castle. It is my faverite show. I must say though that I agree with bigbird. The last couple of episodes, I missed the sword play,” as Stana put it in one of their interviews”. A little flirting, sneaking a kiss, more romantic eye contact and their fabulious chemistry, their charming wit would keep me hooked for several more seasons. They didn’t WIN that Peoples Choice award for nothing. It just needs more HEAT.

I’d love it to continue for another two seasons, but the last few episodes have been awful and most of the fans want the old format back. It won’t be the fans fault that it’s going to be cancelled, the writers are doing a great job in killing it!!!

The show is great. The dynamics between Nathan F. And Stana K. are outstanding. Renew it for a sixth season.
