Critic Reviews for Castle Season 8

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

One of the things I always enjoy about this show is that Beckett is never entirely reliant on help when she's in danger, and for that matter, neither is Castle. There is no damsel in distress.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's not exactly a secret that Castle's strength is its cast.

May 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Given all that had transpired between the two over the course of eight seasons, it's reasonable to suggest that Castle itself was really a love story built inside the framework of a typical procedural.

May 17, 2016 | Full Review…

The opening murder scene had just the right mix of mystery and shock value without having to be gory. That's an art few shows can pull off, and I appreciate how well they did it here.

Sep 22, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I don't understand why anyone ever considered doing this show without Stana Katic, because I could tell that Beckett had his number by the way she held herself as she spoke to him in his car.

Apr 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It didn't abandon Castle and Beckett to die holding hands on a kitchen floor, but left them happy, ever after. And though I know they are not real people, I am grateful for this canonical kindness.

Audience Reviews for Castle: Season 8


New showrunners come in and completely ruin Castle in its eighth (and final) season. Castle and Beckett's marriage is broken up as Beckett seeks to protect her loved ones from a secret investigation that she launches into a crime syndicate that murdered her former FBI team; meanwhile Castle re-opens his PI business to work cases with the NYPD and win Beckett back. The breakup plot is incredibly dumb and just becomes more infuriating as it goes on. And although Beckett is supposedly promoted to precinct captain, nothing really changes as she pretty much continues on in the same role. There is, however, one good change to the show, with Castle's daughter becoming an associate in his PI business. The tone of the series also takes a downward turn, though not as one would suspect. In spite of the dark and serious themes, the show becomes more comedic with Castle at his most fanciful and goofballish (which is another problem). A series killer, Season 8 of Castle is complete garbage that fans rejected in mass and is best forgotten.
