The beginning of a new season of Castle usually means an agonizing wait for Australians as the network that airs it there, Channel 7, typically waits until the new ratings season to start the show, which means waiting until February!
Fans have been calling and writing to the network for months pleading with them to move the schedule forward this year. Encouraged by the news that other networks would be “Fasttracking” many of their US shows this year fans held onto a little hope that they might get the new season earlier this year. Rumours started to surface about a December start for the season which encouraged fans though they continued to hope for more and kept calling and writing to the network. Finally it would appear those voices have been heard and Season 5 of Castle will start airing on Channel 7 (Prime) from Monday October 29.
This new season will also start on a new night. Traditionally on Sundays following Bones, Castle will kick off the new season at 8:45 on Mondays.
Reports coming in from fans indicate that channel 7 is heavily promoting the show and the network sent us this Sneak Peek.
