Castle Season 8. Stana Katic And Her New Role. Do You Expect Any Change?
Castle Season 8 is set to premiere in the fall on ABC in its regular Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT timeslot. Great! However, many things seem to have been difficult. For example, we waited for many months to see stars Nathan Fillion (who plays as Richard Castle) and above all, Stana Katic (Detective Kate Beckett) signing their new contracts to continue on the show. They finally did in the final weeks of the season 7.
Now, a new problem. Penny Johnson Jerald, the actress who plays Captain Victoria Gates on the crime procedural, will not be returning for season 8. Why? On her Twitter, Jerald wrote: “To my Castle fans around the world, as of late yesterday I am surprised and saddened to learn that I will no longer be a part of the Castle family. Thank you all for your support and love. Hugs from PJJ”.
Surprised? Of course, and fans too. Because the tweet received thousands of retweets and favorites with many outraged Castle fans expressing their irritation over the decision. Thus, what is happening with Castle? Is this decision in relation with David Amann exiting as show runner and being replaced by Terence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley?
In my opinion and as Castle Season 7 finale hinted, maybe Detective Kate Beckett will choose a political future as senator and her days in the police station will be few. I know Jon Huertas and Seasmus Dever will continue in the show, and they are excessively happy for this news as if they were aware of their insecure situation. In how many episodes will we see them?
Definitely, what is going to happen with Castle future is a surprise. Maybe the show could still have some sort of life ahead for it, Stana Katic is coming back for at least one more season but they say that she only signed a one-year deal. We’ll see!
