Sure, Castle Season 6 just kicked off last week and we still have nearly three months to go until Christmas Day, but it’s never too early to start asking about those holiday-themed episodes, now is it? Especially since the Castle team has grown oh-so-fond of them.

One TVLine reader was just as curious about whether or not there would be a Christmas episode this year — especially since Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) could be in different places on the big day — and posed the question to editor Michael Ausiello.  

Unfortunately for those of you looking forward to some Caskett holiday cheer, his answer was less than thrilling. Although he acknowledged that Castle viewers were treated to a Christmas-themed instalment last year (with Santa and everything!) show creator Andrew Marlowe has already warned him that we won’t be in for a repeat yuletide-fest this time around.

“We have an episode that takes place around Christmas time, but it’s not super Christmas-y,” Andrew notes.

Honestly, we’re a little bummed to be missing out on Castle and Beckett’s first Christmas as an engaged couple, but maybe a Christmas-lite episode won’t be so bad after all. Tell us your thoughts below!

Castle Season 6 airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
