The cancellation that’s making headlines isn’t really that big of a shock.
It was announced last month that Stana Katic was not being signed to the next season of Castle, leaving a lot of people wondering how you continue a show without one of the two co-stars. They pulled back her role a bit this season and have definitely laid the groundwork for the possibility that she could be killed off. Nathan Fillion, who plays Castle, eventweeted he hoped the show would continue for years. But, no dice.
Next week’s season finale with be the final episode of Castle.
Fans were a bit more shocked to hear that Nashville is done after four seasons. It was never a ratings hit but had a very loyal following.
Agent Carter, Blood & Oil, The Family, and Galavant won’t be back next year either, along with Rookie Blue, Wicked City, and Of Kings and Prophets.
Fox is dumping Grandfathered, starring John Stamos, and The Grinder, starring Rob Lowe, along with Bordertown, Minority Report, and Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.
We have known for a while that CBS cancelled Mike & Molly. (In fact, we found out at almost the same time the cast did. Ouch.) Ditto with it being the last season for Person of Interest. They also said goodbye to Under the Dome, The Millers, Angel from Hell and Extant. And CSI: Cyber has been cancelled, ending the CSI dynasty. It’s the end of an era that spawned four different series over 16-years
Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris appears to be a one-season event. We knew that Hannibal was done, and NBC has pulled the plug on Heroes Reborn.
Netflix has decided to renew the majority of their shows. Some are still waiting on a decision, but Lilyhammer got the axe and will not be back for a fourth season.
