Castle’s abrupt ending that concluded with a seven years leap confirming a happy ending for Rick, Kate and their three kids, haven’t been much satisfying for the viewers. Nathan Fillion, the leading man of Castle, admitted that the cancellation of the show could be behind the abrupt ending.


It wasn’t the beautiful send-off that I think maybe you could hope for, but it’s the entertainment industry, it’s a business, I get it,” the TV Line quoted Fillion as saying. “I don’t take it personally when a show gets canceled — I can’t take it personally, all my shows gets canceled! Look at my resume, it’s a long list of canceled TV shows.”

Due to the cancellation, the Caskett romance ended in something that could have concluded on a cliffhanger. Instead, the show makers decided to take the viewers seven years forward and close the book with a much simpler ending.

Fillion, being the star of the short-lived “Firefly,” gave a reasonable perspective to the sudden cancellation of the show. According to him, it’s a business venture and he doesn’t have any hard feelings regarding the show’s cancellation. Also, at least for Castle, it was an eight-season long journey.

“The fact is, I made a lot of great friends on a really great show,” he added. “I’m really happy for everything that that show has done for me.”

Fillion, started on a multi-episode journey on “Modern Family” Wednesday and expressed a similar attitude about Castle’s fate at the Comic Con, pointing out that it is difficult for any long running show to give its viewers a proper send-off.

According to a report by the Cinema Blend, the show got cancelled shortly after the contract was renewed for a number of its leads, and quite a few members got fired. However, it was not hard for most of the show’s leads  to find new gigs. While Fillion has found a place on “Modern Family,” Jon Huertas can be seen on “This Is Us” and Stana Katic’ s Indie movie, Sister Cities went to Lifetime.
