A constant People’s Choice Awards favorite, “Castle” premiered in 2009. Fans love the show for its interesting murder cases, humor and chemistry between the stars, especially the leads played by Katic (as Cate Beckett) and Nathan Fillion (as Richard Castle).

Back in January, ABC president Paul Lee said during a press tour with Television Critics Association that the network still wishes many years of airing for the series. However, as contract negotiations have yet to be set, the show and Katic’s status are currently in limbo.
