The Castle TV show on ABC has been canceled after eight seasons. Despite re-signing Nathan Fillion, Seamus Dever, Jon Huertas, and talking to Molly Quinn, Susan Sullivan, and newcomer Toks Olagundoye about returning for a ninth season, Castle‘s eighth season finale will now be its TV series finale.
Once the network chose not to re-sign Stana Katic and Tamala Jones, reportedly for budgetary reasons, fans were not so keen on a Castle renewal. The backlash was rather epic. Much of Castle‘s draw was the relationship between Katic’s Kate Beckett and Fillion’s Richard Castle. Castle season eight, episode 22, “Crossfire,” the Castle TV series finale, airs Monday, May 16, 2016. Watch a promo, below.
ABC says: “With their best lead in hand, Castle and Beckett are ready to take on LokSat. But an unforeseen twist puts their case – and their lives – in jeopardy, on the season finale of “Castle,” Monday, May 16th on ABC.”
Hopefully, Castle fans won’t be left dangling without sufficient closure. As previously reported, EP Alexi Hawley planned a second ending to “Crossfire,” should it prove Castle‘s final episode, rather than the jumping off point for a ninth season.
