Will the upcoming season finale of “Castle”; be the final episode of the series? And will Beckett make it out alive?

That’s what fans are wondering, as ABC has yet to render a decision as to the fate of the romance-tinged crime drama, while it’s already been confirmed that star Stana Katic won’t be returning even if the show does come back for a ninth season.

Given all that, viewers are excused for treating the season finale as a series finale, and this just-released trailer for the episode teases a storyline that places Beckett in grave danger — sparking fears that Katic’s character may be killed off.

Here’s what the official network synopsis has to say: “With their best lead in hand, Castle and Beckett are ready to take on LokSat. But an unforeseen twist puts their case — and their lives — in jeopardy.”;

The season (or possibly series) finale of “Castle”; airs Monday, May 16.
