While Castle has yet to be renewed by ABC for a ninth season, if the show continues series regulars Stana Katic (Kate Beckett) and Tamala Jones (Lanie Parish) will not be a part of it. ABC has decided to not provide the actors with new contacts.


“Kate Beckett has been a beloved character on our hit series Castlefor the past 8 years,” ABC said in a statement. “We are grateful for Stana Katic’s talent and dedication to the series and we hope to continue our relationship. Tamala Jones has also been an integral part of the series and we are grateful she was a part of Castle.”

In a statement Katic said, “Rather then distract from what was an amazing experience I would just like to say that I'm very grateful to ABC for giving me the opportunity to be a part of a much beloved show. Thank you to the fans.”


Jones said, “I’ve had so much fun playing the wonderful and unfiltered Lanie over the past eight seasons. I will greatly miss the cast and crew — it’s been a privilege getting to work with this incredibly hard working group of people. Thank you to ABC for this opportunity and to the fans for their unwavering support. It’s been an incredible journey and I can’t wait for what lies ahead!”
