This has been a great week for Castle fans. On Monday night, we got the first glimpse on the new season and what it is going to be like to see our favorite crime-fighting duo together. Then, a couple of days later, the season 4 bloopers – that will be released in DVD set in late September – were also released and it seemed like this week just couldn’t get any better, right?
Well, ABC decided to be generous to us Castle fans and has just released the promotional photos of the cast for the upcoming season 5. I have to say I liked this set a lot more than the photoshoot they did for last season, especially the cast shot. It is no secret that I was not a fan of the noir episode and I think that the noir style cast photo of last season distanced a lot from the usual vibe of the show. This year’s cast photo, however, seems like a throwback to earlier seasons and I really hope that this is the tone TPTB will set in season 5.
ABC has also released an updated description of the show and states that “the Season Five premiere episode picks up the morning after, with Castle and Beckett facing new questions about their relationship. Was this a one-time thing? Are they a couple? Will this change their professional relationship? And how much can they afford to reveal to their NYPD co-workers?”
Also, I loved Stana Katic’s photo in the way that it seems to reflect her character’s happiness and how content and relaxed Kate will most likely be with Castle. Anyway, it looks like we are in for a fun season. After the doom and gloom that permeated at least half of season four, one can only hope that now these characters will have a shot of being happy.
