Our hearts are aching right now because ABC just announced they canceled ‘Castle,’ ‘Nashville’ and more — some of their most beloved and long-standing series. All the named series will end at the conclusion of their current seasons. So sad.
Boo! Shame on ABC for canceling so many series that we love the most. The network just announced Castle and Nashville will come to an end when their current seasons wrap in the next two weeks. Plus, a few others were canceled as well. We’re beyond devastated.
Just one month after Castle co-lead Stana Katic was not asked to come back to the series, following Season 8, the network has just revealed no one will be coming back because the show is dunzo, according to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Deadline. Nathan Fillion was going to fly solo if the series returned for a ninth season, but now it seems as though the series will end with Castle and Beckett together.
Sadly, Nashville was also axed by the network on May 12, Deadline also reports. There had been positive signs for a Season 5 renewal, considering producers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick were recently hired as new showrunners, but ABC must have not had enough faith in the series. On a positive note, Deadline hears “Lionsgate TV will shop the series to other networks.” (Fingers crossed!)
And while we’re at it, we should probably note that Agent Carter and The Muppets were canceled by ABC, too. It’s such a sad day in TV land, and we wish the bad news would just stop coming! Please — we can’t bear to hear about another cancelation.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you upset Castle and Nashville were both canceled? Tell us below.
