As ABC’s Castle gears up for its fifth season finale, there is no doubt that the series will be renewed for next season. But I hear ABC is considering giving the quirky procedural starring Nathan Fillion a two-year pickup, which will bring it to seven seasons. That must be gratifying for Caste and its producers as the show spent the first couple of seasons on the bubble until establishing itself as a solid ratings performer with strong fan following.
ABC has decided to delay Monday’s Castle, which features a bomb-related plot, in light of this week’s attack at the Boston Marathon. The episode, titled “Still,” finds the team attempting to disarm a bomb that Beckett has stepped on.
It will now air one week later on Monday, April 29. The episode originally scheduled for April 29, “The Squab and the Quill,” will now air on April 22, replacing “Still.”
