[Blind Gossip] For those of you who thought that the dismissal of a certain TV star didn’t make any sense, this should provide some insight!
[The Show’s Creator] is the one who kept everything together all these years. Even though he knew [Lead Actor] hated [Lead Actress], [Creator] was in charge and he always did what was right for the show. He knew that putting [the lead characters] together as a couple worked as a story line and he kept everybody in line professionally and didn’t allow their petty personal bullsh*t get in the way.
As soon as [Creator] left, that’s when the trouble started. [Lead Actor] felt like this was now HIS show, and he told the producers that he wanted to move it in a different direction. Of course that meant dumping [Lead Actress]!
All that crap they’re putting out about how it was a budget decision and how much she will be missed, etc.? Ha ha ha ha! Total bulls*t!
[Lead Actor] hated her, he wanted her out, so she’s out. Simple as that. Yeah, he’s just shot himself in the foot… and f*cked over the entire cast and crew… and probably killed the entire show… but he thinks he’s won!
Sounds like a hollow-point victory to us!

[Optional] Was getting his costar fired a smart or dumb move on his part?
Actor: Nathan Fillion
TV Series: Castle
Nathan Fillion (who played Castle) hated his costar Stana Katic (who played Beckett). She was fired a couple of weeks ago.
However, it was a short and hollow victory for Fillion… because Castle has now been cancelled!
When the producers claimed that they “released” Katic and another female cast member (the talented Tamala Jones) because of budgetary concerns, we weren’t fooled. They booted the two most prominent female actors on the show… but renewed the contracts of the three male leads, including Fillion?
Bullsh*t! We knew that Fillion had finally convinced the producers to get rid of Katic.
The fans were not happy about the cast change announcement. While they were not privy to the behind-the-scenes activities of a TV show, they were smart enough to recognize that the show stopped being about Castle several seasons ago, and that Beckett – and Beckett’s relationship with Castle – was now actually driving the show.
‘Castle’ Canceled By ABC After 8 Seasons
Another Castle shocker. ABC has canceled the veteran crime drama procedural after eight seasons. The May 16 Season 8 finale will now be a series finale.
The cancelation comes after ABC sibling ABC Studios went through the trouble of making new deals with star Nathan Fillion as well as co-stars Seamus Dever, Jon Huertas as well as a couple of others for Season 9.
The show dropped a bombshell last month when co-lead Stana Katic was told she would not be coming back, along with fellow original cast member Tamala Jones.
The move drew big backlash from fans. Still, signs had been pointing to a renewal, possibly for a shortened, 13-episode ninth season at a reduced license fee.
Now, the show will remain about Castle and Beckett till the end, with no Castle 2.0 where Castle flies solo. And the showrunners will have to use the alternative ending they shot just in case the show doesn’t continue.
Fillion has no one to blame but his own big, fat ego for the cancellation of the show. His insistence on the the death of Beckett = the death of Castle.
Now everyone in the cast photo below – plus hundreds of crew members – are out of work. Well done, Fillion!
Congratulations to Columbus for discovering America and for being first with the correct response!
