This just in: ABC picks up 'Castle' for full season

Categories: Castle, News

Castle-Fillion_lIt’s the news Murder, He Wrote Castle fans have been waiting for: ABC has picked up the Nathan Fillion dramedy for a full, 22-episode season!

The second-year show has been holding onto a decent chunk of its Dancing with the Stars lead-in, so the back-nine order wasn’t a total surprise. Still, it’s nice to get the official confirmation!

That brings to five the number of shows ABC has given the full-season green light to. In addition to Castle, the net has picked up The Middle, FlashForward, Cougar Town, and Modern Family.

    It hasn’t held up too much of its lead-in. Hopefully for Castle fans it doesn’t have the Samantha Who? affect and getting *very* bad ratings after Dancing stops airing.
