Can you believe it's been 11 years since Castle first aired?! (11 years, 4 months, to be exact.)
Why in the world did Castle end?
When Castle came to an end after 8 years in May 2016, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Castle reunion disappoint people?
Castle aired from 2009-2016 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Fillion said he's not sure if Castle would work today. “I don't want to see old Rick Castle,” he told a journalist (Fillion turned 49 in March). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Castle movie?
In a recent interview, Nathan Fillion said he can't imagine a Castle reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Victor Webster (who played Dr. Josh Davidson) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Castle movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Castle film, Stana Katic stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Castle reboot?
Recasting Castle for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Castle reunion, a Castle movie, or a Castle reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
