Castle's Tamala Jones Talks About Her Exit from the Show

Tamala Jones is opening up in a new interview about her exit from the show Castle.

The 41-year-old actress, along with her co-star Stana Katic, is being let go from the series after eight seasons.

“I actually found out on Friday. I got the call and I didn’t think it was going to be exposed so soon,” Tamala told Access Hollywood. “I thought, ‘Let the fans get through the season and then announce.’ But when it came out I was very much aware. And I feel good. I have had the biggest blessing being on Castle.”

Tamala said she never thought her character would be on the show for so long and was happy to make it to season five for the syndication deal. She also thanked ABC for being a family to her since her first television show.

“Eight is completion and new beginnings, so I think I’ll finish great,” Tamala said about leaving after season eight. “I feel good and if there is a season nine, I would love for the fans to continue to watch because I’ve been a fan the whole time I’ve been on the show. I think it’s an awesome show.”

Many of Stana and Tamala‘s fans have stated on social media that they will not continue watching the show without their characters.

    Sorry, but no. Castle is an ensemble show. Without Tamala and Stana it’s not the same show anymore, so I won’t be watching. They should just let it end with Season 8.

    I’m done too. Stana was the heart of the show and Lainie was hardly in the show I wish they would have explored the friendship between her and Kate.

    I know I’m dating myself here but this is like McMillan and Wife after Susan St. James left and it was just McMillan. Awful. Castle is Beckett and Castle, period.

    Sorry, but as much as I love Stana, (& I do!) I’ll still watch. I’m a huge Nathan Fillion fan, and he’s what brought me to the show in the first place. I do think it should be a final season though. If Kate dies, hopefully Castle will hunt down her killers.
