It looks like ABC is building its ‘Castle.’

The network has given a full-season order to the Nathan Fillion series ‘Castle,’ according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The mystery show, starring the charming Fillion as a novelist who gets his kicks helping a cop (Stana Katic) solves crimes, averages 10 million viewers and received a moderate boost from its post-’Dancing’ timeslot Mondays at 10 p.m., as well as from DVR viewings.

Originally launched with 13 episodes in midseason, the pick-up of the back nine episodes brings the count to 22.
