Castle cancelled after eight seasons
The end was nigh as soon as ABC kicked Stana Katic off the show for a potential season nine. And after the fan uproar over the future of Castle, the network has cancelled the series.
Two endings were filmed for the season eight finale Crossfire, which airs in the US next Monday and here on Alibi in a few weeks. One would have ended on a cliffhanger, leading into season nine and presumably the departure of Kate Beckett, while the other was designed to offer closure if the show was cancelled. This means fans should get some closure after what has been largely viewed as a very decisive season.
ABC also cancelled Agent Carter, Nashville, The Family and The Muppets.
