It’s official: Castle and Beckett fans don’t have to worry about the fate of their favorite couple. Stana Katic has officially signed on to Castle’s eighth season, which was renewed just last week.

The show will undergo a showrunner change heading into its new season, but with both Nathan Fillion and now Katic on board, viewers can breathe a sigh of relief.

It seems that the season 7 finale, which just aired last night, was right about one thing: The future is bright.

What does it say for a potential Season 8 of Castle that they wrapped up the two major storylines (Bracken, 3XK)? And if this is indeed the last season, shouldn’t the writers already know so that they can properly wrap up the show? –Vaso
I revisited this hot topic with showrunner David Amann the other week — asking, At what point do they need to know which way the wind is blowing with regards to re-signing Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic and possibly locking a renewal? – and his response was this: “Obviously, we’re prepared for whatever comes along, and we’ll adjust as necessary. But we’re hopeful that the show will move forward. In the meantime, we’ll just make the best show that we can.”

Castle Boss On The 3XK shocker, What’s Next For Castle & Beckett

Posted by Shay • Comments Off on Castle Boss On The 3XK shocker, What’s Next For Castle & Beckett
Category ι Articles, Castle News, David Amann, Season Seven, Spoilers

Well, if there was any question before, Castle fans now know that 3XK and Kelly Nieman are not only back, but they’re targeting Beckett and Castle. More importantly, they’re on top of their game. By the end of the first hour of Castle’s annual two-parter, Jerry Tyson walked free, and he and Dr. Nieman seemed to have a hand in Beckett’s abduction. So what now?

“Castle realizes by the end of part one that this entire thing was orchestrated, it was a bit of a fakeout to separate Beckett from the team and make her vulnerable,” showrunner David Amann said. “We look at this as the culmination of Jerry Tyson’s fantasy revenge against Castle—now he has Castle’s wife and she could not be in worse hands. So obviously moving forward into the next episode, everybody’s going to be deeply concerned and committed to trying to find Beckett and get her back before something terrible happens.”

But as the last hour proved, finding Dr. Nieman and 3XK isn’t always the problem. Rather it’s finding evidence against them that seems to leave the team stumped time after time. And this time around, Amann said it could be more of the same, with Dr. Nieman and 3XK still playing very visible roles in part two.

“The paramount goal is finding Beckett,” he said. “But in order to do that, having access to Tyson and Kelly Nieman is a big part of that because the overwhelming suspicion is they’re behind this disapperance, so being able to confront Tyson and Nieman are very much things that they’re trying to do, in the service of finding Beckett.”

And yes, that does mean that Tyson and Nieman will be getting their fair share of screentime in the second hour. “[Michael Mosley and Annie Wersching] brought a tremendous amount of presence and eeriness on this episode, and will do the same thing moving forward into the second half of the two parter,” Amann said.

Amann compared the amount of screentime Beckett will get while in captivity to the season opener, in which Castle was missing. “We’re in the point of view of our team and Castle looking for her, so that’s the emphasis in the first part of the episode, and for a good part of it, her fate and her whereabouts are unknown.”

And although Amann wouldn’t say if Beckett’s fate would be resolved by the end of the hour, he did add that “the show is built around the relationship between these two characters and I think it would be difficult for that to not be the case moving forward.”

Speaking of that relationship, Beckett mentioned having kids in the beginning of the hour, and it won’t be the last time. “It’s part of a general dilemma that Beckett has about her future,” Amann said. “The question of children figures into that, career questions figure into that, because after all, she has resolved her mother’s murder, she’s gotten married to Castle—things are in a pretty stable and good place for her. But I think that she’s wondering what the next step is for her, what is she going to be doing moving forward, and the question of children is of course going to enter into that equation.” At least that’s one thing this abduction won’t ruin.

As for Tyson and Nieman, fans shouldn’t expect much background on what they’ve been up to since we last saw them. They should, however, expect some hints about their future. “We will get a little bit of a sense of where they hope to be going moving forward in the next episode so it will be mroe about where they’re headed as opposed to where they’ve been.”

The conclusion to Castle’s two-parter airs Monday, Feb. 16 at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Will the shift in showrunners on Castle have an effect on current storyline set up in the Season 6 finale? –Rachael
In a word, nope. Everything I am hearing from well-placed sources indicates that while David Amann will be taking over the day-to-day running of the show, the vision very much remains that of series creator Andrew W. Marlowe — so much so that I have no qualms answering the next question with a quote from AWM…

The Castle finale was en fuego! Any news on what’s coming up for Season 7? –DarkDefender
I can tell you what’s not coming up – any new regurgitation of the Bracken storyline. Which, to me, rules out the squirrelly senator as the igniter of Castle’s fiery fate. “The Bracken arc is pretty much over,” Marlowe told me after the finale. “We know who [killed Johanna], Beckett has gotten juctice…. If there is any future storytelling with Senator Brecken, it would be breaking new ground and not going back to revisit the old ghosts.” That said, “Bracken isn’t dead, he’s a formidable person and he may someday entertain notions for revenge,” Marlowe allowed, “but it would be [in the context of] storytelling that moves us forward.”
