‘Castle’ Season 8 Return Delayed

If you thought February 1 was too long to wait for the next new episode of Castle, I have some bad news for you: the return has been further delayed by one week. The new premiere date is February 8.

According to CarterMatt, while the reason for the delay has not been specified, it may be due to ABC wanting to air Bachelor Live in the best schedule possible: all in one five-week block. Whether or not that’s the reason, I do wonder what effect this might have on our long-running detective show’s ratings when it finally comes back. Hopefully the network will do a good job promoting it, especially if they want to give it a ninth season.

Castle will be returning (eventually) to ABC Monday nights at 10pm.
