CASTLE: Andrew Marlowe Teases Diving Into the World of Child Actors and Richard Castle as a Hostage Negotiator for Season 6 Cases
July 23, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
While the big questions on everyone’s minds about CASTLE season 6 revolve around whether Beckett will accept Castle’s proposal and whether she will go to DC for a new job, one thing is certain: crimes are still going to need to be solved.
“We’re going to start off with a case that’s relatively high-stakes,” CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe told me. “We think that’s a fun way to get people reemerged into the CASTLE universe. And then we’ll have some more fun cases coming up. As you know, we like to balance the serious, the thrilling, and the fun.”
As for those lighter cases. season 6 will feature the show diving into the world of a certain late ’80s/early ’90s television show, Richard Castle having to step up in an unexpected way, and…time travel?!
“We’re working on an idea here where our suspect in the case claims to be a time-traveler back from the future, trying to prevent cataclysmic events from unfolding,” Marlowe teased. “We [also] have an idea that’s centered around the death of a grown-up child actor, that takes us into a fun kind of SAVED BY THE BELL world, that turns into something much more complicated than that as we move further into the storytelling. But it’s kind of fun to revisit the shows of 1980s and ’90s that we watched growing up.”
“We [additionally] have a case where Castle is enlisted in a hostage crisis as a negotiator because the woman doesn’t trust police and she’s kind of his number one fan,” he added. “So he’s sent in to help resolve the situation with hilarious and dramatic results.”
(And for those of you still concerned about the recent CASTLE shutdown, Marlowe reiterated shooting is going smoothly now. “Though ABC has asked me not to comment on the situation, we love Nathan and Nathan loves the show and we’re looking forward to a really amazing season 6,” he said.)
Which case are you most looking forward to seeing in CASTLE’s sixth season? (And yes, I talked with Marlowe about Castle/Beckett and other season 6 goodies, so be sure to check back soon for that!)
