Castle ended Monday night after eight seasons, so creator Andrew W. Marlowe went on Twitter following the finale to thank the show’s stars and fans in multiple heartfelt tweets.
“Thank you to @NathanFillion for eight seasons of dedication, creativity, and leadership as #Castle. Can’t wait to see how you wow us next!” Marlowe wrote. “And a very special thanks to all the #Castle fans & especially @CastleTV for all your support over our 8 seasons. You made the ride a joy.”
The end came with a shower of gunshots, a touch of flirting, and a heartwarming tag. And now #CastleMondays are no more. Eight seasons of the romantic procedural were capped with an ending that betrayed the uncertainty around a season 9 renewal. But at least fans can rest easy knowing that — though their final chapter was rushed — Richard Castle and Kate Beckett are still each other’s “always.”

After eight seasons, Castle signed off for good on Monday night, leaving the Caskett love story intact.
The surprising cancelation of ABC’s Castle has resulted in some interesting tweets from star Nathan Fillion.
There was this, which some fans found surprising:
Dear Fans, In whatever project I do next, loudly notice how unlike Castle and fresh and versatile I am. Thanks.
Castle fans aren’t the only ones in mourning. After ABC cancelled the show following eight seasons on Thursday, the cast — including Stana Katic, who plays Kate Beckett — addressed the news on social media.
Castle has been canceled after eight seasons, EW has learned.
The news comes as somewhat of a surprise after the announcement that Stana Katic and Tamala Jones would not return for a potential ninth season; reports had characterized the exits as cost-cutting measures designed to allow the show to return for another season.
At the time that this recap is being written, ABC has yet to announce its decision one way or another on season 9 of Castle. So here we are on the brink of the possible series finale with an episode about the prophesied end of everything. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could blame the devil instead of ratings when our favorite shows teeter on the bubble?
To be or not to be? That is the question. Also, who used an old-fashioned writing quill from the prop department of a Shakespearean masterpiece to kill the leading man playing Hamlet? That’s the real question.
In the wake of news that Stana Katic won’t return for a potential ninth season, Castle fans probably shouldn’t expect a happy ending in the finale. But the question remains whether tough detective-turned-captain Kate Beckett will meet a grim fate.
In the season ender, Beckett and Castle (Nathan Fillion) will come up against the mysterious string-puller only dubbed LokSat. (More on that here). But an unforeseen twist will put the case, and their lives, in jeopardy.
The canon has expanded to include all kinds of origin stories, but once upon a time, superhero status was bestowed almost exclusively upon the “mild-mannered.” And that’s the most suitable adjective available to apply to Alan Masters (Jonathan Silverman), the almost-victim of this week’s Castle. In “Dead Again,” the stiff finally gets the opportunity to participate in his own murder investigation. It helps that Alan didn’t die. And then didn’t die. And then didn’t die some more.
