Even eight seasons in, ABC’s Castle has some fresh territory to be explored. Namely, a courtroom trial for one the many murders Beckett & Co. have solved.
“For the first time ever in Castle history, you go into a courtroom, you actually see a trial based on a case,” co-showrunner Alexi Hawley tells TVLine.
And while the murder case at hand is not one viewers have seen unspool on-screen, the testimony of one Richard Castle promises to take viewers on a trip down memory lane.
“I think it will be a treat for our longtime fans,” says co-showrunner Terence Paul Winter, “because it refers to several things that have happened in the last few years.”
There’s also the none-too-small fact that always unpredictable Castle is called to testify in the case.
“He’s an ‘interesting’ guy to give testimony. He has to take the stand— annnnnd it kind of goes sideways,” Winter shares with a laugh. Adds Hawley, “So then there’s fallout from that, some scrambling to do damage control!”
