ABC's drama Castle has roped viewers in with the charm of its leading man Nathan Fillion and its exciting melding of crime and human drama. The series is currently in its fourth season, which was set to be 22 episodes. However, ABC loves the show just enough to order one more episode for the season. Although it's not exactly a huge addition, fans should take comfort in knowing that their series is being graced with a good deal of appreciation from its home network. No matter how small, any addition is a terrific thing in the world of network television.
The new 23-episode fourth season of Castle is, as of this past Monday, on winter hiatus. The series will return to its Monday night, 10 p.m. ET/PT time slot on Jan. 9 on ABC. Until then, just consider how you'd like Fillion and Stana Katic to spend their additional hour on television in 2012.
