Season 4 finale of Castle aired on May 7th, but no official news has been released about season 5 of ABC's hit crime drama although diehard Castle fans have been speculating for months about the Season 5 renewal.
Season 4 of Castle premiered with a whopping 14.35 million viewers and has averaged out to 10.81 million viewers each week. Beckett and Rick's crime fighting escapades boast one of ABC's better index's at 1.82, which is on pace with CSI: Las Vegas, Revenge and Glee. However, ratings are not the only contributors to Castle's fervent success; the series' online fanbase has sky-rocketed over season 4 and continues to spread through the social media like wildfire.
May 15th is ABC's "upfront" presentation where ABC announces their new and returning series so I guess we won't have to wait much for official announcement. In the meantime check out our latest post on Castle Season 5 spoilers!
