TV show description:      
Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is an incredibly famous mystery novelist who has become bored with his own success. His life starts to get interesting when he learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes based on his novels.

Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a very bright and aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under a tight rein. Their styles instantly clash yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Rick steps in to help Kate find the killer. Once that case is solved, the author decides to use her as the basis for a new book series.

Rick uses his connections to get permission to accompany Kate while she investigates other cases, much to her frequent irritation. But Kate has a reputation for looking for “freaky” cases so she needs all the help she can get.

Others on her team include Kate’s confidant, Medical Examiner Lanie Parish (Tamala Jones); sardonic Detective Javier Esposito (Jon Huertas); and Detective Kevin Ryan (Seamus Dever), a nice guy who’s always ready to offer obscure facts. Captain Roy Montgomery (Ruben Santiago-Hudson) is their boss who makes sure that Kate’s cases go smoothly, in spite of all of the strong personalities involved.

Rick’s mother is Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan), a diva and former Broadway actress, who still seeks the spotlight and often ends up getting involved with the police cases. Alexis (Molly Quinn) is Rick’s quick-witted and insightful teenage daughter who keeps her famous dad in line.

Rick and Kate build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York — as much fun as one can have with death & murder.

    Are you kidding me, it seems every good TV Series Crime/Drama or Medical Crime/Drama ABC wants to cancel the show. Why? Televise these shows like, Castle and Body of Proof on weekends in the evening after the 10 O’Clock News. There are people like us that do enjoy watching these programs, along with Detroit 1 8 7

    Why??? It’s one of the best on TV. Get rid of some of the reality shows. They are junk anyway. Never watch them, but look forward to Castle every week.

    I looked forward to this show on Monday nights! It’s one of the most creative, entertaining, and quality shows to be on offered on TV in a long, long time. Please do not cancel it. It would be a big mistake and heart-breaking to its many fans,

    Isn’t this typical of the programme supliers. Get something good and they want to cancell it so that they can feed us a load of crap. If Castle is cancelled then I may as well dump my TV because out of all the dross they put out they want to cancell the only good bit of TV.

    I think ABC is NUTS if they cancel CASTLE. It is one of the best shows that ABC has had on nighttime television in YEARS.

      I think that ABC is making a MAJOR MISTAKE by cancelling CASTLE. It is one of the best nighttime televisions show on ABC.
