After a month of firings, contract negotiations and angry fans, ABC has made a decision to officially cancel Castle after eight seasons.
Castle struggled in the ratings this year, but in the second half of the season the number began to climb. With the show cancelled, there is a high possibility that Beckett will stay alive.
However, there were also reports of a twist is the story as the leading female protagonist was not going to be part of the next season.
In the show, Katic plays NYPD Homicide Detective Katherine Beckett before being promoted to captain. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that producers had Castle and Beckett break up because of the feud.
Collected together, Huertas said: "It was a good run, but Castle is done".
"If we hear that we're not coming back, we have shot something that we can put at the end of the episode as a way to put a button on everything", Hawley told EW.
The question is, will directors give him a call knowing a little more about how contentious things were behind the scenes at Castle?
On his Twitter account, the funnyman didn't waste any time to thank the network and his fans for all of their support throughout the past eight seasons.
Up to now, the cast and crew of "Castle" are waiting for a season 9 renewal.
