It's the end of an era.

Or at least that's what it feels like now that Caskett is officially over. As previously reported, Stana Katic won't reprise her role as Detective Kate Beckett on Season 9 of Castle, and Tamala Jones will also not return as Lanie Parish. Since news broke, many cast members have expressed shock, discontent, and sadness over Katic and Jones' departures.

Nathan Fillion, who plays Richard Castle, addressed Katic's dismissal on Twitter. “Castle has been one of the greatest joys of my creative life, and I hope the show continues on for years to come. Stana has been my partner all this time, and I thank her for creating the character of Beckett who will live on for all of us as one of the greatest police officers on television. I wish her well, and have no doubt she will succeed in everything she pursues. She will be missed.”

Jon Huertas, who plays Detective Esposito, also expressed his thoughts via social media and explained that he first heard the news online! WOW.

Seamus Dever, a.k.a Detective Ryan, went on Twitter to give his side of the story.
