After a recent report surfaced speculating the loss of a co-lead on a well established drama, EW is here to quell Castle fans’ fears: Beckett and Castle are safe.

As far as the rumors pertaining to their show, Castle showrunners Terence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley assured EW that it’s not true. As Winter put it, “We killed off Montgomery in season 3. We’re not killing anymore people off.”

Hawley joked: “[If it were true], I can’t imagine we’d be sitting here saying you’re going to be excited to see what happens in January. ‘Beckett’s dead, but dont worry about it, it’s still going to be fun!’ No, we’re not. It’s absolutely not true.” 

We know, we know. You’re welcome.
