It’s official, not that I ever had any doubts! Castle is renewed for season six!
ABC has begun its renewals, handing out additional season to its top dramas, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and Castle as well as freshman hourlong Nashville.
The Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic procedural from ABC Studios is a sturdy performer for the network on Monday nights opposite increased competition this season from NBC’s breakout drama Revolution and CBS’ reliable Hawaii Five-O, both of which were previously renewed for the 2013-14 schedule. This season, the series — which earned an early order for one additional episode, expanding its fifth season to 23 episodes — is averaging nearly 9 million total viewers and a 2.6 in the adults under 50 measure. Castle also marked its 100th episode this year, in addition to launching in syndication on TNT.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of the show, for winning all of the Undy awards in the “Drama Series” categories, from Hulu’s “The Morning After!” The wins were well deserved!
This is some disappointing news, but we’ll be sure to update once TNT gets a new schedule for Castle syndication.
We announced in late April the TNT start date for reruns of Castle was Thursday, June 7. As of late last week, TNT has delayed the start date for reruns of that popular comedic crime drama. No word yet on when Castle will air on TNT now, but The Mentalist reruns will continue to air on Thursday nights at 9pm and 10pm. In the meantime, viewers can watch Castle reruns on ABC on Mondays at 10pm for the next two weeks (June 4 and 11) before it goes on hiatus until late August. The series will return with brand new episodes on ABC this fall for its fifth season.
Castle is a comedic/romantic crime drama starring Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Desperate Housewives) and Stana Katic (Quantum of Solace, TNT’s The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice). Also as part of TNT’s TV Everywhere rollout, Castle will also be available for online viewing through mobile phones, tablets, computers and other devices as soon s it starts airing on TNT. They will only be allowed to air the first two seasons for now but will be able to air more than just the first two seasons by Fall 2013. The series also heads to weekend broadcast syndication this fall, so check your local listings for times and station as we get closer to the fall! Stay with us for a new premiere date for Castle on TNT!
It finally happened! Castle has been officially renewed for season five! Thank you television gods and ABC for making all of us Castle fans extremely happy! I can’t wait to see what Marlowe and the crew have in store for us next season!
ABC just made its “no-brainer” renewals, picking up its strongest scripted series. That includes freshmen Once Upon A Time, Suburgatory and Revenge, comedies Modern Family and The Middle and dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Castle. (The renewal for Grey’s comes after the main cast signed new deals.) Surprisingly not on the list is sophomore comedy Happy Endings, but I hear that deal is closing, so the show will be back. Also expected to return are two freshman comedy series that didn’t make the first cut, Last Man Standing and Don’t Trust The B—-. Looking good is Shonda Rhimes’ midseason drama Scandal. Talks are still ongoing on a potential 13-episode pickup of Grey’s spinoff Private Practice, which logged underwhelming ratings this week after a promising start on Tuesday. The future of GCB and Body of Proof is unclear, with both having a shot depending on ABC’s new drama series choices. And of course, fellow bubble ABC series Cougar Town just found a new home at TBS. ABC is yet to make its unscripted renewals, which will likely come tomorrow, with Dancing With The Stars, The Bachelor/Bachelorette and Shark Tank certain to get the nod.
Warning: Spoilers! Do not read ahead, if you wish to remain spoiler free!
If you’ve been following TVLine’s Ask Ausiello column – and really, why wouldn’t you be? – you’ve gotten clues about the Castlecharacter who will be turning up at season’s end. And thus far you’ve heard that it’s someone with ties to a former regular.
Well, clues shmues — TVLine can now confirm that the person set to resurface in the May 7 season finale is the late Captain Montgomery’s wife, Evelyn (to again be played by Judith Scott).
What returns the widow to Beckett & Co.’s orbit? Here is what series creator Andrew W. Marlowe revealed about the season-ending encore. “Events force us to wonder whether the case we’re working on might be linked to the Beckett’s mother murder case” – aka the conspiracy-led cover-up that Monty was rather complicit in, and ultimately died for. “We’ll be picking at that scab again.”
Also on tap for Castle‘s Season 4 capper: Battlestar Galactica alum Tahmoh Penikett will begin a multi-episode run as a “cold, calculated” type with a military background. Hmmm… wonder how he is with a rifle?
