The season finale of the seventh season of “Castle” had a lot of questions left hanging in the air, yet it also gave a sense of finality, as the future of writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) seemed like it would be a promising one, no matter what decision or choice Kate would make. However, as months go by before fans return to the 12th Precinct, TV Line has released an interesting tidbit as to what is in store for Castle and the gang when it returns this fall. Read on to learn a little bit more about the upcoming season.
The season finale left fans wondering whether Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) would decide to become captain or if she would run for senate, as she had just been selected to be a senatorial candidate for New York. Additionally, in an earlier report on Movie News Guide, it was reported that actress Penny Jerald Johnson, who portrayed Captain Victoria Gates, would no longer be returning for the eighth season, making fans wonder even more if Kate had indeed turned away from an ambition to enter politics.
However, that report, and a more recent report on the upcoming eighth season of the show on TV Line doesn’t give any clues as to Kate’s choice, but it does give us a tidbit of information that is indeed interesting.
According to a report on TV Line, come fall, when fans return to the 12th Precinct, and to the wonderful world of one Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), there will be a new face in town, in the person of a former Los Angeles Police Department officer who now works as a security specialist, named Hayley.
Hayley will be around for most of the seasons and is described as quick witted and free spirited, and ABC is currently looking to cast either an African-American or Hispanic actress in their late twenties for the role.
Also, according to another report on TV Line, Hayley will be spending a lot of time with Castle, but no details have been released yet as to why.
Also, TV Line has also announced that the show is also casting an East Indian male technological analyst, who will be a recurring character for the upcoming season.
What do you think of the new additions to the cast? Why do you think they will be meeting a security specialist? Why do you think she will be spending quite some time with Castle, and most importantly, with the new analyst, what will happen to Tory Ellis (Maya Stojan)? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
