The pick-up comes on the heels of the biggest ratings so far for the mystery-drama, which stars Nathan Fillion
and Stana Katic
Monday's conclusion of its two-part TV event drew 14.5 million viewers, setting a new series high. Last week, Castle
defeated time-slot rival, CSI: Miami
, for the first time with a then series high of 12.9 million viewers.
