The poor ratings of “Castle” season 8 is taking a toll on the showrunner as well as the network. There are rumors that the show may be cancelled. The ABC crime drama has been a hit in previous seasons, but this time, it has not been able to pull viewers.
“Castle” season 8 premiered in September and as per the storyline, it is going well. However, the split between Castle and Beckett was not taken too well by fans. The showrunners have said that they will not separate for good, but fans want more of their chemistry.
As far as the ratings are concerned, the premiere of the show received a rating of 1.2, which was highest till date. The latest episode that was aired received only 1.1 for the audience group of 18-49. “Castle” season 8 is rumored to be in its last season on TV due to low ratings.
Fans are already expressing their sentiments on the cancellation of “Castle.” There is one more thing that is bothering fans. Carter Matt has mentioned that there is a blind item that states one of the co-leads of an unnamed show is going to die in a few days. This would be in the fall finale of that show and it will not return after that.
According to speculations, that show may be “Castle” and Kate may get killed. But showrunner, Alexi Hawley has mentioned, “[If it were true], I can’t imagine we’d be sitting here saying you’re going to be excited to see what happens in January. ‘Beckett’s dead, but dont worry about it, it’s still going to be fun!’ No, we’re not. It’s absolutely not true.”
What’s really in store for “Castle” season 8 is still not known. We can only hope for the best as the show returns from its season break.
