For Castle fans, a season of “Castle” always ends too soon, but lucky for us, this season will be even longer, as ABC announced Season 5 will now have 24 episodes.

(Could that be making room for an engagement-wedding-honeymoon storyline for Castle and Beckett? Or is that just wishful thinking?)

Though Castle and Beckett meeting at the altar is entirely speculative, according to Zap2it, Castle will end up meeting his father for the very first time later this month.

Castle's mom, Martha has always insisted she doesn't know who Castle’s dad is, nor where he is now, but apparently, someone in the CIA does.

This “man of mystery” will be played by Emmy-winner James Brolin.

Meeting your father for the first time at Castle’s age?! That’s an intense reunion indeed!
