Another piece that we spotted right away was a bedazzled bridal gown worn by Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) on Castle. Katic, along with fellow castmember Molly Quinn, and the show’s costume department, were out in support of designer, Luke Reichle.
He explained that the costumes he curated for the exhibition were all part of the show’s “Dressed to Kill” episode, which focused on the fashion industry. “We had to create a kind of a backdrop for a piece of evidence, which is a photograph of these two assistants fighting. They were in very bright colors—one of them is the victim of the crime—and I wanted them in very neutral background, so in the photograph, the girls would pop out.
“I chose to do everything in these neutral camel colors,” he said as he pointed to the costumes behind Beckett’s dress, “but each designer had their own look so each outfit had its own distinctive style.”
And as for the haute couture wedding dress, Reichle said that thankfully then-showrunner Andrew W. Marlowe gave him a few weeks’ notice. After showing sketches to Marlowe and discussing the dress with Katic, Reichle and team crafted it in their workroom. The gown uses real French silver bullion lace, Austrian crystals and bouillon silver sequins. “The fabric alone in this dress is like $1,200,” Reichle said. “Dior wedding dresses start at $10,000. And knowing what those look like and knowing what we put into this…this is probably in the range of $50,000.”
“In a follow-up episode, the dress is destroyed, but we didn’t destroy a proper dress. What we did is that we took fabric and created a kind of trompe l’oeil mockup of it,” he said. “I wasn’t going to let [the crew] near it with a blowtorch!”
We also asked Reichle, author of the book It’s Not About the Clothes: How to Change Your Mind About Your Look, about any star style tips he could give us “regular folks”—especially on those days when we’re not feeling exactly ready for the red carpet. But he was reassuring: “Even movie stars don’t feel like they look like movie stars,” he said.
“Style from the inside out. The outside is all about color and shape and developing your look and your own personal style, but the inside is really important because no matter how beautiful the outfit is, if you don’t have a great idea about how you look—that’s going to sabotage you every time.”
“The most practical advice I can tell someone is to learn how to take a compliment,” he said. ”And in taking a compliment, ‘Thank you’ is a complete sentence.”
Can you tell me who ran Castle off the road in last year’s Castle finale? — Diana
Nope, but I can certainly tell you who didn’t. For fans convinced that last year’s fiery cliff-hanger was brought on by either existing nemeses Bracken and 3XK or even Castle’s own father, allow new showrunner David Amann to burst your bubble. “The mythology we’re getting into is going to go past all that into some new territory,” he says. “Those are all fair game, but it’s not going to be what the opening of the season is about.” What the new season is about is unearthing new secrets about Castle. But how will that impact the Castle-Beckett relationship? “Things that are going to come to light that are going to be unsettling for Beckett,” Amann teases. “But we’re committed to that relationship. I don’t think what happened to Castle is going to disrupt the trajectory of that relationship, at least not in the long term.”
Got any Castle scoop? Like, guest cast or who’s writing 7×02? –Sandra
On the casting front, you probably have seen this fresh bit of scoop. As for the writer of Episode 2, which involves the murder of a toy mogul, that’d be a gentleman named Andrew W. Marlowe. (IOW, the premiere isn’t a two-parter per se.)
Greetings from Germany! You talked to Castle‘s Andrew Marlowe and David Amann. Soooo, is there anything else they shared about the new season in their interview? –Mandy
Greetings from America! Your new showrunner Amann teased “a really fun episode,” somewhere in the first four of the season, “that deals with what seems to be an invisible killer — and the characters take a lot of pleasure in that.”
Castle is turning to Truck to solve its big car-crash cliffhanger.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Ryan Sands, best known for his portrayal of Officer Lloyd “Truck” Garrick on The Wire, has been tapped to guest-star in the ABC drama’s Season 7 premiere. He’ll play Tagger, a Hamptons police sergeant who helps Beckett investigate the most difficult case of her career (presumably, Who the hell ran Rick off the road?).
Earlier this week, new Castle showrunner David Amann and series creator Andrew W. Marlowe told TVLine that the Sept. 29 opener picks up immediately following Rick’s seemingly fatal accident. The pair also confirmed that the incident was not a dream.
“We did what we did for a reason — to open up some new mythology,” noted Marlowe, “[and] to open up some really interesting aspects of storytelling for the Castle character, who hasn’t been as deeply explored as Beckett over the past six years.”
What doesn’t kill Castle stands to make “Caskett” stronger. That’s the message from the ABC series’ new showrunner, David Amann, and creator Andrew W. Marlowe, both of whom spoke with TVLine Tuesday at a Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour soiree.
For starters, and to put a final nail in any scurrilous speculation, Amann was not promoted to showrunner in the name of “undoing” any perceived problems with the May finale, which left bride Beckett discovering the fiery wreckage of her groom’s car.
“Andrew and I have been working together since I arrived on the show five years ago,” Amann shared. “He’s still very much a part of the show and he’s going to be very much involved. The vision is going to remain the same.”

Get ready Castle fans, because the season 7 premiere has been announced for MONDAY SEPT 29 10|9c on ABC! When we last saw Richard Castle, he was just about to marry his crime-solving partner and muse Kate Beckett. In a tragic turn of events, he didn’t make it to the ceremony.
Here’s where we left off in the Season 6 Finale
