Castle Season 8 Shocker: Nathan Fillion to Return... But Without Stana Katic? - TVLine.com

Castle will retain its Castle but lose its kings — and possibly its queen — should ABC renew the procedural for Season 8.

An ABC spokesperson confirms that Nathan Fillion has signed a new deal to continue on as the title character for Season 8, if the show is picked up for the 2015-16 TV season.

However, the status of co-lead Stana Katic, whose contract also is up this spring, remains a big question mark.

ABC also confirms that David Amann would not return as showrunner for any possible Season 8, while TVLine hears that both series creator Andrew W. Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller would likely step away from their producing/writing duties to focus on development.

Like Stana's Jacket in the pic you chose. I've always liked Castle but it was much better in the first few seasons. This season was actually a lot better than the last two. The banter between Castle and Beckett is great -- but Beckett on her own ... doesn't really do much. She was completely upstaged by the female cop from Hong Kong a few weeks ago and she knew it. While I do like beckett, and she is a "strong" female character ... she's not a strong female lead. She has a personality -- but its not a strong enough one to carry a show, hence the need for Castle and the show being named after him. With this in mind, I don't think the show would suffer at all from her departure. Rather, it might actually be better. That being said, since they are married I dont see how they could not have her come back. If they killed her off that would upset too many fans, including myself. I'm sure she'll sign on again. Its not like she has boatloads of directors lining up to cast her as the next big Marvel super hero. Though, she would be a fine choice. She's got the Jaw.

I would be totally bummed if Stana did not sign on for the next season! she and Nathan work well together - The show would have a huge whole in it if she were not there!
