Update: Looks like Castle will be returning for another season, according to E! Online! Take a deep breath, for Castle will live to see another year of bringing Nathan Fillion straight to your eyeballs about once a week.

We know, it's exciting. We can hardly wait, either!

Original Story, February 22:

Attention, Castle fans — breaking news! The potential sixth season of our favorite crime procedural has been up in the air for months, but recent reports have new intel on the future of Caskett and Co.

According to TVLine, Castle Season 5, Episode 15: “Target”, which aired Monday February 18 drew in some pretty high ratings, leading experts to rate the show’s renewal a “sure thing.”

This, however, comes as no surprise to us. Season 5 has been the best season of Castle yet. Castle and Beckett are finally an item, Alexis has been kidnapped, Castle’s dad is making an appearance, and we’re finally digging into squeaky-clean Detective Ryan’s past!

Are you happy about the show’s imminent renewal? Weigh in below!
