Nathan Fillion Speaks Out on ‘Castle’ Cancellation: ‘All Things Must End’

“I am truly amazed at what we’ve done,” actor says

“Castle” star Nathan Fillion is taking a philosophical approach to the cancellation of his ABC series after eight seasons.

On Friday, the day after his show got the ax, Fillion took to Twitter to note, “All things must end.”

The actor, who played author-turned-private investigator Rick Castle on the series, added, “It has been an honor working with the men and women of ‘Castle.’ I am truly amazed at what we’ve done.”

 

The hard-working actor isn’t planning to take a vacation however, and is already pitching himself for other projects. “Dear Every Director, It appears I have an opening in my schedule,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet Friday.

“Dear Fans, In whatever project I do next, loudly notice how unlike ‘Castle’ and fresh and versatile I am. Thanks,” he added.

Earlier Friday, Fillion’s former castmate Stana Katic also took to Twitter to reflect on the series.

“Dear ‘Castle’ fans, cast & crew,” Katic said in a hand-written note posted to the social media site. “Your devotion to our show has carried us for these unforgettable 8 seasons.”

She added, “I’m lucky to have met & worked with & for the lot of you. I will always be grateful.”

“Castle” wasn’t alone in getting the ax Thursday; a slew of shows met their end.

Along with “Castle,” ABC said farewell to “Nashville,” “The Muppets,” “Galavant, “The Family” and “Agent Carter.” Fox, meanwhile, chopped “Grandfathered,” “The Grinder,” “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” and “Bordertown.” CBS cut “CSI: Cyber,” while The CW bid adieu to “Containment.”
