The ratings for Castle have been coming down over the last couple seasons. Will they keep falling? Could the show end up being cancelled or is it almost sure to be renewed because of syndication profits? Stay tuned!
On Castle, Rick (Nathan Fillion) and Kate’s (Stana Katic) relationship continues to evolve while they continue to solve crimes. The show also features the talents of Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Jon Huertas, Tamala Jones, Seamus Dever, and Penny Johnson Jerald.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

What do you think? Do you still like the Castle TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for a seventh season?
Please bring back the castle tv show . It would be exciting to see castle and Kate go through a pregnancy, birth of a baby. It also would be wonderful to see if Alexis reconnect with her first love Ashley and to see what profession she decides to choose, a lawyer or a teacher. Also Hava never got to have a special permanent relationship. The tv show bones is still going strong I believe the castle tv show could do the same but the writers did poorly the past two tears
Without Kate & Castle, there is no show. And really all the members of the cast grow on you and would be difficult to replace or lose. May as well cancel show. ABC want to continue putting out garbage instead I guess.
If you lose Kate, Lanie, Esposito and Ryan, you have nothing and may as well cacel the show. It’s a shame when , powers that be coose to get rid of characters that made the show popular. I, for one, won’t watch if they aren’t on it.
The dynamics between Rick and Kate are the reason we watch. To break up that team would be a big mistake. Don’t do it!!!
I Love Castle!
Hi guys,you do know we are done with season 6 almost 2 years ago….we are now in the middle of season 8….. So why are you talking about season 6?????
The ratings re down because of the stupid writer and hands-off approach of ABC execs. ONLY for that reason. If you renew the original plot story lines – will again be a winner !
