At the annual Television Critics Association panel today, ABC President Paul Lee made the following comment about Castle “We’d love for Castle to keep going for years to come.” This should be taken as as encouraging news by Castle fans given its consistency with past years!
When asked about the potential for any spinoff plans, he added, “There are lots of good ideas for that. I don’t want to give a glimpse to what those ideas might be, but I’m feeling optimistic that we’ve got some good ideas.”
There has been mention of a possible Derrick Storm spinoff in the past though there has been now mention of the potential series in some time.
It is perhaps timely to remind fans that there has been plenty of gossip (particularly driven by sites with a reputation for click-baiting) surrounding Castle lead cast members over the past 2 years leaving the show and it’s important to recognize it is just that, nothing more than gossip and until an official source says clearly otherwise, there’s no benefit in being negative about it.
