'Castle' Renewed: ABC Re-Ups Hit Drama For Season 6

Can Castle and Beckett's relationship really go the distance? We've got another season of "Castle" to find out, as ABC has renewed its hit Monday night drama for a sixth season.

The series, which follows millionaire playboy crime novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) as he trails NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) for material, has grown its audience every season since premiering, averaging around 12 million viewers an episode.

However, the series' ongoing "will they/won't they" storyline with its two leads finally stopped as the writers let them try out being a couple this year -- and ratings have dipped a bit in response. Will breaking them up bring viewers back, if only to beg them to get back together again? Only time will tell.

Shows that didn't make the cut for the 2013-2014 season include "Body Of Proof," "Happy Endings," "How To Live With Your Parents," "Malibu Country" and "Red Widow," which join the previously canceled "666 Park Avenue," "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23," "Last Resort," "Private Practice" and "Zero Hour." On a more positive note, the network also renewed "Grey's Anatomy," "Last Man Standing," "The Middle," "Modern Family," "Nashville," "Once Upon A Time," "Revenge," "Scandal" and "Suburgatory." ABC has not confirmed the reported fates of "Family Tools" and "The Neighbors."

ABC also picked up a number of comedies for the 2013-2014 season: "Super Fun Night" starring Rebel Wilson; ensemble "Mixology"; Malin Akerman's "Trophy Wife"; family comedy "The Goldbergs" and "Back in the Game" starring James Caan. On the drama side, in addition to "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Wonderland," ABC picked up drama "The Returned"; David Zabel's "Lucky 7" and "Betrayal"; the Christian Slater/Steve Zahn vehicle "Mind Games" and Sofia Vergara-produced "Killer Women."
