'Castle' Canceled by ABC After Stana Katic Was Let Go

ABC has canceled Castle after eight seasons and just weeks after it was announced that star Stana Katic had been let go from the series due to “budgetary reasons.”

It was reported last month that Castle would return with only Nathan Fillion as a leading player if it was given a ninth season.

Two endings for the season eight finale were filmed in case the episode ended up the series finale. Producers are now editing the episode to make it the series finale and it will air on May 16, according to THR.

    good. they screwed this up big time. I love Nathan but his ego got in the way

  • C.R.

    This is not a surprise since the 2 leads hated each other.

  • Jen

    Yes!!! Thank god! Now it can end with a little bit of dignity

  • niagirl

    lol

  • Broadzilla

    Karma’s a bitch, Nathan

  • Revengefan0101

    Woohoo! ABC made the right decision. It’s better to end the series in a positive manner. I hope Stana gets more work soon; she’s an amazing actress.

  • Gina

    Your avatar makes me sad, I miss Revenge.

  • Revengefan0101

    Loved Season 1. I wish they would have gone with an Emily/Daniel storyline.

  • Lynn

    strange how things work! Fillion releases a cold, insincere, self serving statement when Katic and Jones are let go. Castle is the highlight of his career and he hopes the show continues for years he says! Obviously thinking ,wow, I will have the show all to myself now. His conceit riles the fanbase and turns them against him. He should have at least stood up for his co-star of 8 years who carried the show as much or more then he had. But no..he signes up for #9. If he had at least acted with a bit of respect and dignity the fans might have gone along . So in one fowl swoop he angers the fans and tarnishes his reputation and then the rug is pulled out from under him and the show is cancelled anyway! As one of the characters in Castle, Tyra’s mother said to Richard Castle” It’s not about the money Richard, it’s about character,which you would know if you had any!” Just put Fillion’e name where appropriate!

    Hell no I’m not sad, after the disrespectful way Stana and Tamala were fired I’m just glad that either the fan backlash worked, or ABC had enough sense to realize that the show would not work with Nathan alone and no Stana.

  • Christina

    Me too!! I loved them together..

  • Genghbot Khan

    Damn skippy! I hope there’s a tell-all book, someday.

  • Genghbot Khan

    He probably demanded the studio heads get rid of her. Got Molly Quinn to side with him on social media. You can smell the conspiracy through the tone of voice in the ‘PC’ tweets that transpired after the axing of Stana.

  • A Mega V T

    Smart decision from ABC’s boss! The show will never be amazing like the old days when they have Stana if they renewed

  • suk bin

    what do you mean ??

  • Magyar Zoltán

    Maybe it was her ego why is Nathan the bad guy in this season Stana had a face in every episode like she is asking herself why i had to do this i want to quit. She was not fired like so many people think she quit the show even she was offered more money than Nathan. Without the show i don’t think she would be such a famous actress no one would watch her z list movies

  • Hwah

    she was offered more money than Nathan???!!! Now that’s news, can you link to that? Thanks.

  • deacc

    Can’t stand MQ either. Not even a good actress.

  • Felinelilly

    Complete lie. If Stana had quit she and ABC would have said so. She didn’t quit, the official press release from the network said Stana and Tamala were fired for budgetary reasons. Not the guys, just the women were fired. And ABC caught flack for it from every news outlet on the net. But keep making things up and lying if it makes you feel better.
