Ever since Castle Creator, Andrew Marlowe, stepped down from showrunner of his Fox hit series, their have been wild rumors circulating it was because of season sixes' fiery finale. I can now spoil beyond a shawdow of a doubt that is untrue. Here's what David Amann and Andrew Marlowe had to say about Castle's future and the new mythology that will be in place when they return in the Fall.
Andrew and I have been working together since I arrived on the show five years ago, Amann shared. He’s still very much a part of the show and he’s going to be very much involved. The vision is going to remain the same and when the fans see what we are doing, they’re going to be happy that it’s not a dream. We did what we did for a reason — to open up some new mythology, to have some really fun storytelling coming up. Those fans who are less-than-thrilled should reserve judgement until they see the first few shows of the season.”
We are as committed to their relationship as Castle and Beckett are — they are deeply in love and they have overcome a great many challenges already, Amann says, so whatever [has happened] is not going to tear them apart. If anything, it will make them stronger.
Marlowe echoes Amann, teasing, a lot of questions are going to be raised, but the two of them are going to face thosequestions together. We’re not looking to significantly alter the trajectory of their relationship or pull the rug out from under the audience. We’re looking to open up some really interesting aspects of storytelling for the Castle character, who hasn’t been as deeply explored as Beckett over the past six years — and we’re really excited by that opportunity.
