However, fear not, “Castle” fans, because, according to TV Line, that question has finally been resolved. Also, aside from this, according to Deadline, the show’s creative team underwent an interesting shake up that hopefully, will prove to be for the best for the eighth season of the show.

According to the article, the “Castle” co-star has finally and officially signed on to be part of the next season. She renewed her contract to play the detective once again, at least for the upcoming season, as the deal that she had just signed was for one year.
