ABC Orders Another Additional Epsiode for Season 5

Perhaps those fans who find reason to panic every week when Castle's ratings are released (check the ratings data in our forums, there's actually on reason to worry) you can rest easy as ABC expresses faith in the show ordering an additional episode for season 5.

A regular "full season" is 22 episodes which ABC ordered when they renewed Castle last May. A single additional episode was ordered back in October but now ABC sees fit to add one more.

Congratulations to the cast and crew on a job well done and please accept our thanks for the additional week you must now take off your hard earned vacation time!

season 5 24

      I enjoy reading all of the comments, but unless everyone goes to “ABC TV (dot) com and makes a case to keep the show on TV….you are just talking to each other. I have visited the website and asked the network to please consider renewing the show for another season. I have asked everyone that I know who is a fan to do the same. ABC doesn’t respond to this web page, but may change their current policy if enough people take action.

        Actually Mara, ABC has a working relationship with this site so they DO watch what goes on here! We also have all the ABC contact details on our contact page and I regularly encourage people to contact them.

    And with that, we should all phone or email ABC and thank them… and hint at a season 6 renewal as well! :D

      Already did it, *AND* because *I am* one of those people who worry about the ratings every week (sorry, but too many of my favorite shows with “nothing to worry about” got canceled anyway!) I also left my demographic information with my “Thank you” letting ABC know that while I don’t have a Nielsen box monitoring my every TV move, this 18-49 year old, religiously watches “Castle” *live* every Monday night. I figure letting them know couldn’t hurt and it might even help. I’m not assuming the renewal is a done deal until it actually happens, thank you very much. Something about not counting chickens until they hatch and all that. :-)

    I did send an email and does everyone get a form letter in reply that makes me think they do not even read the email. Would it be better to phone or to send emails. Does it make any difference if we send more than one?

    Anybody got a clue?

  4. says

    They do pay attention to feedback. It’s not unusual for big corporations to send out an immediate “standard response” so I wouldn’t let that bother you.

    You can also call the feedback line (details on our contact page) it’s very easy to do.

    Great news, course now that makes Season 4 the oddball season that didn’t have 24 episodes. Yes, I know the first season was only 10 episodes, but that was a midseason order, so that doesn’t count…:D

    Just sent my feedback to ABC thanking them for the extra episodes. This news along with the new book out in September just before the new season begins pretty much guarantees a sixth season. Which I never doubted.

  8. catluver aka Donna says

    It has been suggested that when we write or call that we ask for some early promo for them for the Oscars. I phoned and also suggested that they mention that they are People’s Choice winners. This is a tweet with the phone number.

    You can also call ABC and suggest early placement for Castle promos during the Oscars. 1-818-460-7477, then press 1-2-2-226 to leave a msg!

    Sorry, did not mean to overstep. I looked for the contact number and did not see it. I guess I did not look in the right place.

    Also, just to note, ABC arranges all their advertising well in advance so they’re not going to change what they promote by fan request, efforts are better spent giving feedback, encourage them to promote the show in general more certainly, but asking them to promote during a specific event that has likely already been planned isn’t likely to be effective.

    I’m as keen to see more of Castle as all you guys, but first: WE’RE still waiting to see ANY of Series 5 in the UK! Having to ‘make do’ (not a hardship) with enjoyable re-runs of earlier series, but even so, REALLY want to see how things are going ‘first hand’ rather than reading about episodes on web-sites/blogs. Come ON Alibi!!

      • Tim says

        Yeah, much appreciated ‘admin’, great to know wait IS nearly over in the Uk; will pester Alibi to advertise their plans better (as am not ‘on’ iTunes). Can’t wait….

  13. nancy says

    I have been a fan from the first episode. Actually suffer withdrawal symptoms during the summer. Sooo glad they hamve requested an additional episode. ABC shouldn’t even debate about a season6! PS: THANKS FOR ON DEMAND. Can watch current sows as much as I want.

  14. aussiecastlefan says

    Fantastic – It is back on Sunday night here in Australia be it is on at 10pm but I dont care its back on that is all that matters.

  15. Dee says

    Love the show but getting tried of the ongoing drama over Beckett’s mother’s death….solve the fricken killings and get back to the fun episodes…..poor Castle was always so entertaining now he’s sad. fustrated and abused….come on….your writers should be able to get on with it

  16. Frankie says

    Woo-hoo! Loved last night’s episode BTW. And the teaser for the next episode left me on the edge of my seat – can’t wait to see it! I agree with Susan S; 2 more seasons please!

  17. Sherrie says

    I’m a die hard Castle fan. I’m glad and excited to have season 5 extra episodes. But will there be a Season 6? Please, we all <3 Castle and writers and producers. We need to find out more bout Castle's father and bring back James Brolin.
