ABC’s hit show “Castle” took over The Paley Center last week in Beverly Hills to celebrate the new season as members of the cast and creative team participated in a special event featuring a lively on-stage conversation, followed by a preview screening for loyal fans and press got a chance to attend. Be warned, if you haven’t caught up on this season already, there are spoilers below.
Andrew Marlowe the Creator & Executive Producer of Castle, If you don’t know the man, go look him up, when asked about what fans will enjoy most this season “I think fans have an expectation to see what’s going to happen with the Castle/Beckett relationship. They finally got engaged and really explore what that engagement means as they head towards the next phase of their relationship and they’ll face the same challenges that any couple who’s gotten engaged have faced and of course it’s filtered through the ‘Castle lens’, so it’s going to be heightened, it’s going to be fun, and it’s going to be dramatic. I think fans can expect more great fun cases in the very much ‘Castle language’ we all know and love”.
Marlowe when on to say, when asked about the character development of each season “Part of our challenge is that everything has to be filtered through a murder investigation. So it’s very hard to do character-based scenes if the murder is moving forward. So you know we would like to give credit to everyone including Castle and Beckett but we also have to tell a procedural. But we’ve enjoyed developing them and we feel every season they get a little richer as they deserve to get”.
Also in attendance was everyone’s favorite detective duo actors Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas. When asked about the Castle and Beckett relationship this season “I think they will enjoy that the two of them finally admitting that they are going to be together forever and the rest of us have to sort out our relationship with that. I think the fans will be very happy that romance is finally sealed and we’re not backtracking with anything”. said Dever.
Huertas followed up by saying “We’re going to see how that affects the precinct. Detectives Ryan and Esposito will definitely get to see their ‘big sister’ moving on to a whole different type of life. I think that is one thing the fans will enjoy the dynamic of the team changing for the better”.
Castle is a TV series starring actor Nathan Fillion and actress Stana Katic.
