Season 8 might be the last for ‘Castle’

With ratings dipping and an audience that’s growing older, Castle might have its days numbered. Knowing this, showrunners Terence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley have already worked out a season finale that could also be the series finale if the show isn’t renewed.

“We hope to come back for Season 9, but we have to act as if [we might not],” Hawley and Winter recently explained.

Another hurdle facing the show is that Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion’s contracts still need to be renewed for a potential season 9. But , the showrunners aren’t letting these challenges get in the way of putting together the best episodes they can for the remainder of the season. “Our plan is just to tell a satisfying story and try to wrap up the season in an exciting way,” they told TVLine.

New episodes of Castle return Feb.1  The show has also resumed filming after their holiday hiatus. Filming is scheduled to take place at 849 S Broadway and 850 S Hill St, Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 5.

  1. Whatever happens, am ready for the inevitable….. I’m grateful
    To have followed this Show for all the seasons and certainly,
    Cherish the memories along with it. Love STANA and will miss
    Her the most !!!

  2. The showrunners have failed to impress this season so Im worried about their idea of wrapping it up in a satisfying way. One thing we know for sure is that it wont be with a pregnancy. Lets hope they can deliver better then their promised 8 x 08 “pay off” which never materialized.

  3. I hope you will continue to manufacture the components of the stand and Nathan as a married couple, it would be a great regret of Castle these are so good elements that I would miss them a lot of skjánum.ég love them both

  4. I hope the writers remain true to the Castle story line. They have spent 8 yrs constructing a story line for the show that is part comedy, drama, crime fighting and romance. The chemistry between Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion has created a ‘love story’ between Beckett and Castle that has drawn younger viewers and more mature viewers, like me.

  5. I love Castle and all that the show is about, however the direction they have taken the show this season is disappointing. Why keep “Castle & Beckett” apart from each other, They are a team with incredible chemistry. I like how Alexis has helped or taken a lead in the family detective business, but Castle should get back to writing… Kevin & Javier have great screen presence and work well together too, The entire cast is a gem!
    Renew the contracts and keep the show going.

    There is so much reality crap on TV, it’s refreshing to get wrapped up in a drama, romantic comedy. Keep up the good work.

  6. Castle has consistently been the best written show on TV, the cast and crew are exceptional, and the amazing chemistry between Nathan and Stana us viewers tune in. I believe the storyline has to continue to evolve for the show to work, our new showrunners only have the best intensions for the show. I am certainly looking forward to the remaining season 8 and beyond. With only reality shows coming on, it great to see drama, comedy and romance is still out there.

  7. This season has been too weird. They need to get Castle and Beckett back togather solving crime and bring more humor back. This Beckett thing with the I.T. guy needs to be ended.
