Why was Stana Katic booted from Castle? Recently, Katic spoke with Entertainment Weekly about her exit from the ABC TV show.
Katic played Detective Kate Beckett on the crime drama for eight seasons. As reported earlier, Katic was dismissed from the ABC series before it was cancelled in 2016. The cast also included Molly C. Quinn, Nathan Fillion, Susan Sullivan, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Tamala Jones, Jon Huertas, and Seamus Dever.
So why was Katic dropped from Castle? In the interview, she revealed the reason is still unclear:
I’m actually still not clear on the thought process behind the way that it went down. It hurt and it was a harsh ending, but now, nearly two years later…I met so many beautiful people on that project, and we collaborated on something really unique in that it’s not every day that you get a show, or a series, that has eight seasons and that it was a hit for the network. It would be a disservice to those people, to the work that we did together, and to my work, which I feel contributed, in part, to the success of the show, to be anything but grateful because, at the end of the day, that was a fantastic platform. It was a formative experience, and we told a love story that I feel moved people, touched people, and I can’t be anything but glad that I was a part of something like that. I hope it remains something special in viewers’ minds forever.”
