#NoStanaNoCastle -- Fans Protest Stana Katic Being Fired From 'Castle'

Susan Macdonald

#NoStanaNoCastle is the hashtag that's taking over social media. Ever since word came out that Stana Katic was being fired from ABC's popular TV show Castle, fans have been taking to Twitter, Instagram, Tumbler, and Facebook to express their anger and disappointment.

"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."


One fan pointed out that Castle had, up until now, "one of the most diverse casts in police procedurals." However, with the female lead leaving and the only remaining female minority leaving -- the African-American female captain having left last season -- the show is now considerably less diverse.


The fans taking to Twitter, Facebook, Tumbler, and Instagram with #NoStanaNoCastle do not think the show can survive if Stana Katic's character is killed off or written out of the show. Some are already promising not to watch the ninth season if it does not include Stana Katic as Kate Beckett.
