CASTLE: Nathan Fillion Reflects on the Series

On March 9, 2009, a ruggedly handsome mystery author and a badass NYPD detective quasi-reluctantly teamed up to solve crime. Over eight seasons of CASTLE, Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) bickered, bantered, fell in love, got married, and started their own family—albeit with some major twists and turns along the way. (Though the series’ 2016 finale wasn’t planned, the showrunners shot an alternate ending which they placed at the end of the episode instead of a cliffhanger.)

For Fillion, who got his first real big break on ABC’s ONE LIFE TO LIVE, the series continued his long-relationship with the network. (He had also been on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and TWO GUYS AND A GIRL prior to CASTLE; post-CASTLE, he’s appeared on MODERN FAMILY, AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, and reunited with CASTLE’s Alexi Hawley on THE ROOKIE.) But, as he acknowledges in the video below, the 173 episodes he did of the Andrew Marlowe-created series is his “greatest success, in a lot of ways.”

Nathan Fillion is officially back with his first series regular gig since CASTLE ended its eight-season run in 2016.

In ABC’s THE ROOKIE—created by former CASTLE co-showrunner Alexi Hawley—Fillion plays John Nolan, the oldest rookie cop on the force at the LAPD. (The series also stars Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin, Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neil, Afton Williamson, and Eric Winter.)

“We’re exploring this whole new…cultural norm we’re seeing,” Fillion explained before the PaleyFest panel for the series, citing how people are no longer as tied down to careers of expected paths of life as they may have been before. “Things change much more quickly in our culture now, and I think the show reflects that.”

CASTLE is undergoing a good number of changes when the show returns on September 21st.

On-screen, THE NEIGHBORS’ Toks Olagundoye has joined the ABC drama as Hayley, a security specialist; meanwhile, Penny Johnson Jerald (Gates) is off the show, and Beckett is the new captain.

Off-screen, there are some changes at play, too. Season 7 showrunner David Amann has left, as have CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller. Long-time CASTLE writer Terence Paul Winter is now running the series with former CASTLE writer (and recent THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner) Alexi Hawley.

And season 8 is going to be a big one for the show.

“It’s going to be a great year…we have a delightful launch, these wonderful tentpoles where things are changing and evolving,” Winter shared. “And for the whole season, we’re telling a wonderful story from beginning to end that will further the love story of Castle and Beckett.”

I spoke with Winter and Hawley about taking over showrunner responsibilities, what’s in store this season, and more…

CASTLE’s eighth season is shaking things up — in addition to Beckett taking on a new job, there are some new faces coming aboard.

But there’s still more drama to come: ABC has teased that “a call from a mysterious stranger sets off an explosive chain of events.” And what unfolds is a story that is being dubbed a “unique two-parter,” which “will explore the same story from each of their perspectives, first from Castle’s side as he searches for Beckett,” in the episode, “XY.”

Check out a few photos from the CASTLE season 8 premiere…

Season 8 of "Castle" begins on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (10:01-11:00 p.m. ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/John Fleenor) TOKS OLAGUNDOYE, NATHAN FILLION

CASTLE: Stana Katic to Return for Season 8

Comments Off on CASTLE: Stana Katic to Return for Season 8

castle-stana-katic-featured

CASTLE’s leading lady will officially be a part of season 8: Stana Katic (Beckett) has signed a deal to return for next year, ABC has confirmed. (Nathan Fillion (Castle) signed on for season 8 last month.)

Last night’s season finale featured Beckett at a crossroads as she had to decide whether she’d pursue becoming a captain or going down the path of a political career. By the end of the hour, she was undecided, so viewers will get some resolution to that story.

The upcoming season will feature some behind-the-scenes changes, however. As previously reported, current showrunner David Amann is stepping down, with long-time CASTLE writer Terence Paul Winter and former CASTLE writer/current THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner Alexi Hawley taking over as co-showrunners. Additionally, CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller confirmed on Twitter that they’re leaving the series. (Marlowe and Miller co-wrote last night’s excellent finale.)

Update: An ABC rep has confirmed that the supporting cast has also signed on for season 8.

With THE FOLLOWING ending its run on Fox, co-showrunner Alexi Hawley has already lined up his next job: he’s re-joined CASTLE for its upcoming eighth season, and he’s been promoted to co-showrunner.

Hawley — who worked on the ABC drama from 2009-2012, and penned nine episodes during that time (including the excellent hour, “Kill Shot”) — will run the show with newly-minted showrunner, Terence Paul Winter. (Current CASTLE showrunner David Amann is stepping down after one year as showrunner.)

CASTLE’s season finale airs this Monday at 10 PM on ABC.

Filed under Castle, TV News

nathan-fillion-thumbIf CASTLE returns for a season 8, it’ll be sans its current showrunner.

An ABC rep has confirmed that there will be a showrunner shift if the show gets renewed for an eighth season. (A decision will be announced about the show’s future in May.) David Amann, the show’s current showrunner, took over for CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe last summer.

One step in the right direction for a possible season 8? Series star Nathan Fillion (Castle) has signed a contract to return.

CASTLE airs Mondays at 10 PM on ABC.
