About Castle

When viewers first met Richard Castle -- a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother -- he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work.

Now, after three seasons, Castle and Beckett's relationship has grown even stronger as they've dodged bullets, captured killers and solved countless murder cases in their unorthodox partnership. But in the explosive Season 3 finale, NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery -- who we learned had a connection to the unsolved murder of Beckett's mother -- was shot and killed by a man tied to that crime. As the episode came to a close, Beckett, who was speaking about her Captain at his funeral, took a bullet from a sniper's rifle and was last seen on the ground with life fading out of her. Will she survive...?

Also with Beckett as his muse, Castle used his newfound experience in the field as fodder for his bestselling novels -- Heat Wave (hardcover published in September 2009, spent 16 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 10 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list; paperback published in April 2010, spent 12 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 11 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list); Naked Heat (hardcover released in September 2010 spent 12 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 8 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list; paperback published in April 2011, spent 4 weeks each on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists); and a third book, Heat Rises, coming out in September 2011.

In addition, for the new season, a graphic novel from Marvel will debut -- Richard Castle's Deadly Storm will come out this September, written by Brian Michael Bendis ("Avengers") and Kelly Sue DeConnick ("Captain America").

"Castle" stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers. Joining the series for Season 4 is Penny Johnson Jerald ("24") as Captain Victoria Gates - aka "Iron Gates" and as by-the-book as they come - who instantly has an issue with Castle... "He's not a cop, he doesn't belong."

Andrew Marlowe is the show's creator/executive producer, along with executive producers Rob Bowman, David Amann, Laurie Zaks and Armyan Bernstein.
