    Penny Johnson won't be returning for season eight




    According to TV Line, Jerald's exit from the ABC crime drama is a result of new "creative tweaks" planned for the show after David Amann stepped down as showrunner.

    Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic will reprise their respective roles of Richard Castle and Kate Beckett

    I preferred Montgomery but I don't want Kate to be captain

    Two new characters for season 8
    As previously reported, the ABC procedural will return Sept. 21 with a two-parter, the first installment of which is titled “XY.” The double-episode salvo will introduce two new characters: Scotland Yard officer turned security specialist Hayley Vargas (to be played by new series regular/Neighbors alum Toks Olagundoye) and tech analyst Vikram Singh (recurring player Sunkrish Bala)

    Wonder if we'll see a format shake-up this season as hinted previously after all?

    I don't think that will come as a major surprise for anyone re Beckett's decision.

    Intriguing opening episode I really enjoyed it.

    Yeah have to say I really enjoyed it, let's hope they can keep the story/pace going. I'm also really liking the Castle PI team; it seems they've finally found a use for Alexis and she's great.

    Great opening, Should have been a double episode though


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,024 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Great second episode the season has kicked off really well hoping it will continue this story arc with Castle's mother in law and Beckett more so than story of the week episodes.

    cant see the show going without Becket. ?

    I'm happy enough as long as Ryan and Esposito are still in it.

    Thanks, I was just gonna post that last nite, but i couldn't find S08 page & was gonna start one:)

    Although i couldn't believe it, as i thought she got fired when i heard dismissal, as i thought the same after watching The Blacklist:confused:

    Afaik, she almost died at end of S05 when shot at an outside presentation?

    Unless the showrunners were teasing us at the start in where the two were separated at the start of season, while Kate & Ackram were following leads & last ep i saw, the two were back together

    Although i saw this by a poster, might explain what was meant by the show EP
    Rumor has it Castle is moving to LA to be a private detective, so that might be why they wouldn’t have Tamala Jones’s character move. It’s going to be hard enough to explain Ryan & Espo’s moving.
    It's already been done at the start of the season anyway, Father/Daughter Detective agency, but now maybe in a different setting to save money??

    The show either needs a serious shake-up or they just need to end it. I'm still a fan of the show in some ways and I do think that their detective agency is the most compelling part of the show at the moment. I particularly like what they've done with Alexis this season, pairing her with Hayley who is also an interesting a fresh character.

    The "best" way to have done this would be to allow Becket to further slip away , but in recent week they have brought her back into castle life

    I dont know how this will work? Death is the only option now , but that means she gone for good

    Doesn't matter if she's gone for good or not. The series won't last another 2 seasons after this one IMHO. Been a great run though

    Very possible but depends on the shake up

    I assume May 17th is the renewal date for most shows?

    There's one spin-off, i would like to have seen, that may have been Adam Baldwin's character 'Ethan Slaughter' as he was a good character in that!

    But there seems to be no end in Firefly cast appearing - as Jewel Staite is turning up on May 2 - ep 20, as well as Summer Glau who guest-starred as a rival private detective, but wish had more of a role in it!

    Would have been a good companion web series

    Was Gina Torres and Sean Maher not in Castle too?

    A few of Nathan's soap opera days cast mates also popped up

    Needs a Morena guest spot now

    Can't understand how a model of the ship isn't just sitting on a shelf in the apartment

    They are back for season 9 if it is renewed along with Castle himself - Source TV Line

    Weirdly uneventful episodes this week leading into the finale.
