“Castle” Season 8 will see the return of Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic and rest of the cast and crew of the ABC crime procedural show, as they create more memorable moments for its characters. With all the rampant speculations surrounding Season 8, longtime “Castle” fans are currently uneasy with what will befall their favorite couple, Rick Castle and Kate Beckett. Are they headed for a breakup or will they start a new family?

In a recent interview with TV Line, Nathan Fillion, who portrays Richard Castle in the ABC series reassured fans that there’s nothing to be worried about after all.

“Con-Man” and “Firefly” star Nathan Fillion  answered several questions regarding the upcoming eighth season of ABC’s “Castle” during the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con.

Fillion, who portrays mystery writer and now private investigator Richard Castle, reassured Ausiello and fans of “Castle” that they should not be worried regarding Castle and Detective Kate Beckett’s (Stana Katic) relationship.

The 44-year-old actor then teased that there will definitely be some changes for them, but in the end, Fillion reasoned that they, as a couple, will change and move forward every year; and this upcoming season will not be an exception. However, Fillion reassured fans that they will not be “bored” with what will happen to them this season.

He also talked about their latest recruit, actress Toks Olagundoye, who, according to an earlier report, will be portraying Hayley Vargas, a former Scotland Yard officer turned security consultant. Fillion mentioned that he hasn’t met Olagundoye yet, but said that he had heard that her audition went well.

Meanwhile, Fillion’s co-star, Stana Katic, who portrays Detective Kate Beckett, and Castle’s wife, hosted a Q&A with fans on Twitter on July 12, 2015.

The 37-year-old actress recently teased fans on Twitter that “Castle” Season 8 will be a “nail-biter.” 

Katic also mentioned that she trusts the new showrunners, Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter on her character’s future and expressed relief that they are the showrunners. She was also asked whether Beckett would be a Senator or a Captain come this fall, but the actress told her fans that she will trust whichever decision the showrunners choose is best for her character.
