We're almost finished with Castle Season 4, yet we haven't heard word one from ABC on whether our favorite show will be renewed for Season 5.

We don't blame you if you're a bit worried — after all, last year's order came in January and it's nearly March. Is the network even listening to our fan cries of desperation?

The good news is, ABC hasn't made official announcements for any of its shows. So no news is good news, people.

And according to Castle writer Terri Miller, ABC is paying attention and they do care what we think, but in "enigmatic ways." We're not sure what that means, but Terri assures us that she's not worried … so we shouldn't be either.

Here are five reasons we know Castle's a shoo-in for a Season 5 renewal:

1. Season 4 ratings have been stellar.
2. Castle's online popularity has skyrocketed.
3. A show is only as good as its fanbase, and Castle fans are the best!
4. Four words: Stana. Katic. Nathan. Fillion.
5. The show can't end now! Castle and Beckett haven't gotten together yet!

What do you think, Castle fans? Will our favorite show get a fifth season, or is Season 4 — we shudder to even think it! — the last chapter?
