Still can’t believe it. Much to the dismay of TV enthusiasts everywhere, it was announced that beloved ABC shows Castle and Nashville were both canceled on Thursday, May 12.

ABC decided to close Castle’s doors for good following an eight-season run. The crime procedural starred Nathan Fillion as novelist Richard Castle and Stana Katic as detective Kate Beckett. The end of the series comes after Katic, 38, revealed in April that she would be leaving after season 8. As Us Weekly previously reported, she and Fillion, 45, had been feuding behind the scenes for years.

Nashville, which premiered in 2012, got the ax after four successful seasons on air. The drama told the story of two competing country starlets played by Connie Britton (Rayna James) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes). Incidentally, Panettiere, 26, announced on May 12 that she is checking into a treatment center for her ongoing battle with postpartum depression following the December 2014 birth of her daughter, Kaya, who she shares with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.
