Fans of actress Stana Katic and the television show "Castle" should prepare themselves for the potential of some major changes in the career direction of the talented actress because she is showing signs she is not planning on returning to the show if there is a season eight.
Entertainment publications such as the "International Business Times" have stated that she has not signed her contract offer from ABC to return to the television show "Castle".
Moreover, she has gone "radio silent" on her social media pages after posting twenty-four 'behind the scenes' (BTS) photos of herself and cast members of "Castle" to fulfil a promise made to her Twitter followers in 2014 to celebrate the final two episodes of season seven (International Business Times - April 21).
She may not have stated outright in making the promise to celebrate the final two episodes of season seven that it would be her final season but her actions certainly give every indication that was her plan from the beginning of season on the show irrespective of how difficult it might be for her emotionally which likely is part of the reason for the 'radio silence'.
For most actors offered a feature role in a series when they don't seem to have another project lined up to film there is literally no hesitation to signing the contract. Furthermore, they are maintaining their contact with their fans to create excitement in the upcoming season but the exact opposite has taken place with Stana Katic which for some entertainment insiders is the same as her providing a neon billboard message to the fans of the show that she is not coming back to the show.
It looks like Stana Katic's time on "Castle" is over and her recent film projects such as "Big Sur" and "The Tourist" suggest that a move to the big screen on a full-time basis will very likely be her next move and if it is as impactful as her "Castle" performance she will be a leading lady movie star.
