ABC announced on 30 March 2010 that a television series, Castle has been renewed for its third season with a 22 episode full-season order. Presently, mystery solving crime dramedy, “Castle” is at an all time high after receiving a huge ratings boost this week. So the network has decided to renew the series for a third season. Castle Season 3 premieres this September with the first of 22 new episodes.
“Castle’s latest episode attracted the show’s largest audience to date (14.5 million viewers) and gave ABC its best scripted performance in the time-slot in 14 years. Yeah, that’s crazy considering when the show first began there were rumors of cancellation floating around every week. ABC’s season 3 pick-up order will include a full 22 episodes so sit back relax and enjoy more campy detective action. I for one, have yet to get into “Castle” because my DVR is already on overload due to my current roster but I’m happy for its success,” according to EW.
ABC’s “Castle” TV show revolve around Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who is a cult favorite for fan-boys around the globe because of his connection to Joss Whedon. A well-known mystery novelist and divorced father raising his adolescent daughter (Molly Quinn as Alexis), while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother (Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers). When viewers first met Castle, he was creatively blocked. Castle found inspiration in the form of a bright and aggressive homicide Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) to solve the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother, when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books.
On ABC’s “Castle” TV show, Castle and Beckett instantly clashed. When Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer, sparks of another sort also began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance. They both built on their new relationship, investigating more strange homicides in New York, when initial case was solved on ABC’s “Castle” TV show. Castle has used his newfound experience in the field as fodder with Beckett as his muse for his latest and soon-to-be-published bestseller, Heat Wave.
