MORE TROUBLE IN PARADISE FOR CASTLE
ACROSS eight seasons, Castle has continued to deliver a special blend of crime, comedy and drama with aplomb, thanks to the will-they-or-won’t-they-get-together antics of stars Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic, both left), and more recently with, ‘They did, it’s complicated’ storyline. This week sees Australian fans of the US drama all caught up with American audiences, with two episodes wrapping up 2016 – finishing with the mid-season finale.
Castle showrunners Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter promised US media there’s plenty in store for next year.
“We’re not leaving you with a cliffhanger, but the promise of what it will be like when we come back,” Hawley says.
The pair make no apology for putting the show’s fans “through a lot” in the first half of this season – but promise the dividends will be worth it come Castle’s return next year. “These are two characters that have been through a lot over the last eight years,” Winter says.
“Some of the things we’ve put these folks through … There’s going to be stuff both Beckett and Castle have to work through.”
