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…

Comments Off on CASTLE Season 8 Premiere Photos: ‘XY’

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…

CASTLE - "XY" - After passing the Captain's exam in the Season 7 finale, Beckett was surprised with an offer to run for State Senate. In the action packed season premiere, Castle and Beckett are adjusting to Beckett's career change, when a call from a mysterious stranger sets off an explosive chain of events. There are two sides to every story, and this unique two-parter will explore the same story from each of their perspectives, first from Castle's side as he searches for Beckett in the exciting Season 8 premiere, "XY." 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.

CASTLE Season 7 Premiere: ‘Driven’ You Ask, I Answer

Filed under #1 featured, Castle

castle-logo-featured

CASTLE left fans in quite the position when the sixth season concluded — instead of Beckett and Castle getting their happily ever after, Castle’s car was run off the road, and he was presumed dead. (Though, the show is called CASTLE. So while he may be MIA, odds of him actually being dead were slim.)

And with the premiere less than two weeks away, ABC made “Driven” available to press. Unsurprisingly, when I asked for your questions, you guys came out in droves. Unfortunately, a lot of what you wanted to know was on the list of things I can’t talk about (or things I don’t think it’s right to flat-out spoil), so I can’t answer as many questions as you might like. But hopefully you’ll get some fun teases out of this…

The first photos from CASTLE season 7 are here, and after last season’s finale which left Castle presumed dead, it shouldn’t be a huge shock which character is MIA in these photos.

Check out what’s in store for “Driven”…

CASTLE - "Driven" - In the Season 6 finale, as Richard Castle drove to his much-anticipated nuptials, an ominous black SUV bore down on him. Meanwhile, after waiting in vain for Castle to arrive at the wedding, Beckett was called to an accident scene to find Castle's car in a ravine, engulfed in flames. Who or what caused the car crash? Is there any way Castle could have survived? The episode will pick-up at the scene of that accident, right where the finale left off, in a premiere that promises to put Beckett through the toughest case of her career. Season 7 of "Castle" begins on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)SEAMUS DEVER, JON HUERTAS, STANA KATIC

The CASTLE season premiere airs Monday, September 29th at 10 PM on ABC.

Filed under #1 featured, GMMR Awards

After weeks of nominations and voting, you have determined who should take home the fourth annual Give Me My Remote TV Awards!

Before we get to the winners, I want thank everyone who participated in our annual contest. Without your nominations and votes, it would just simply be me saying what I loved the most, and what fun is that? (And in case you think your vote might not have made a difference, while most winners won by hundreds — or thousands — of votes, one category was won by TWO votes.)

Which also means this is a good time to remind you that these winners are 100% decided by you, the Give Me My Remote readers, and some fan bases came out in droves (and mounted really impressive campaigns). So if you’re delighted by the winners, yay! I’m so happy to hear that. And if you’re disappointed, a) sorry, and b) hopefully you’re satisfied with at least one category.

So with all that being said, the winners of the fourth annual GMMR TV Awards are…

Comments Off on CASTLE: Seamus Dever Previews Ryan’s Quest to Be Castle’s Best Man, and the Upcoming Season Finale

castle-logo-featured

As CASTLE’s Castle and Beckett get closer to their wedding day, the final preparations are being made. And in this Monday’s new episode, “Law & Boarder,” Ryan and Esposito have a particular task in mind they want to claim ownership of.

“Esposito and Ryan are both vying to be best man for Castle’s wedding,” CASTLE star Seamus Dever (Ryan) laughed. “There’s this comedy of errors where Castle thinks we’re talking about something different, and he doesn’t catch on that they’re sucking up to him and trying to be his best buddy in like a really cloying, annoying way. We’re suddenly just on him, completely, and really competing with one another. So that’s a lot of fun. It’s always fun when Jon [Huertas (Esposito)] and I have to compete about something. We get digs in, and we give each other looks, and there’s lots of things at stake for Ryan and Esposito in that episode.”

And while Castle may be oblivious to what’s going on, Ryan and Esposito’s antics do catch the attention of Beckett.

When CASTLE returns on April 21st, the show is taking a trip to the ’70s…but don’t expect it to be a redux of, “Blue Butterfly,” the noir episode from two years ago.

“We have a really, really fun episode that takes us into the world of the 1970s, into the middle of the disco era,” CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe previewed last month. “It’s a different device than ‘Blue Butterfly,’ that allows us to see our characters in that era. So that’s going to be fun.”
