After eight seasons, Castle's leading lady is calling it quits. Stana Katic, half of the beloved TV duo known as Caskett, is leaving the show, along with another one of the show's original stars. Tamala Jones is also out. "Kate Beckett has been a beloved character on our hit series Castle for the past eight years. We are grateful for Stana Katic's talent and dedication to the series and we hope to continue our relationship," ABC said in a statement. "Tamala Jones has also been an integral part of the series and we are grateful she was a part of Castle."
ABC has yet to renew the show for a ninth season, so we don't even know if it will continue. This truly is the darkest hour. See what has been renewed here.
