Castle

Castle is a witty drama based on a famous crime and horror novelist, Rick Castle, who is suffering from a writers block after killing off the main character in his novels. While struggling to come up with a replacement, Det. Kate Beckett of the NYPD approached him and asked to help catch the copy-cat killer staging murders based on scenes from his novels.

Castle Cancelled After Season 8

ABC has cancelled Castle after eight seasons. The news comes as somewhat of a surprise after viewers were preparing for the show to continue on without co-star Stana Katic, after it was recently announced that this season would be her last.
Rumored plans for a shortened ninth season apparently fell through, leaving the show with just one episode left before it signs off for good. The series finale airs on May 16.

    The season five episode ""Castle" (2009) {The Fast and the Furriest (#5.20)}" aired the day of the Boston Marathon bombing. In light of the event, ABC chose to postpone the airing of the following episode, ""Castle" (2009) {Still (#5.22)}", which deals with Beckett stepping on the sensor trigger of a bomb, and aired ""Castle" (2009) {The Squab and the Quail (#5.21)}" in its place. Even with the switch in air dates, on the season five DVD set, "Still" and "Squab" are listed in the order they were originally intended to air, instead of in broadcast order like the other episodes.

    This show has a close association with the Whedonverse in that many actors from Buffy the Vampire Slayer have been featured (including Marc Blucas, Ethan Erickson, Leonard Roberts, Bailey Chase and D.B. Woodside). The creators also insert several allusions to the TV series Firefly via in-jokes and other references. In the episode "Vampire Weekend", Nathan Fillion starts the episode by appearing in his "Firefly" costume.
