ABC’s Castle — if not the 12th precinct — will be adding to its ranks for Season 8.
TVLine has learned that the stalwart procedural is casting the role of Hayley, a quick-witted, free-spirited former LAPD cop who now works as a security specialist and is not afraid to cross lines to get things done.
The role being cast is a fractional series regular, meaning she would by no means appear in every episode. Specifically, Castle is eying African-American or Hispanic actresses in their late 20s to play the part.
The question of course is: Why the need for a “security specialist”? Is Hayley someone Castle & Co. meet while working a case and subsequently invite to join the NYPD?
Or could it be that Beckett is assigned her own security detail as she runs for that New York State senate seat? (Although given Penny Johnson Jerald’s previously reported exit, the theory had been that Kate instead moves up the NYPD ranks to become captain.)
Hayley isn’t the only new face we’ll be meeting when Season 8 opens. The show is also casting the “major recurring” role of a high-strung, East Indian male tech analyst — whom I can only hope is merely rotating in with Tory. Because otherwise, we have a problem.
A release date, box art and a list of extras have been announced for Castle: The Complete Seventh Season, which will be available on DVD September 1.
The wedding bells are ringing, but will Castle and Beckett really tie the knot?

Caskett shippers rejoice, for we have some great news! The day after the season 7 finale of Castle aired on ABC, the show’s star Stana Katic, who plays the feisty Detective Kate Beckett, re-signed her contract to stay on the hit crime procedural. (Nathan Fillion who plays mystery writer Richard Castle had already re-signed his contract.)
Entertainment Weekly broke the news, and also quoted ABC President Paul Lee saying that he’d like to see the show continue “for many years to come.”
This message was surely to assure the die-hard fans after show creators Andrew Marlowe and his wife Terri Edda Miller announced that they would be exiting the hit series after season 7.Read more at SOURCELINK
Season 8 will not be the final season, according to ABC boss Paul Lee who commented on a Tuesday morning press call: “Not the final seasons of either,” when asked about “Castle” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” He added, “I would like to see them run for many, many seasons to come…they have incredibly passionate audiences.”
For Season 8 of “Castle,” Katic’s co-star Nathan Fillion is also set to return, finalizing his contract before his female lead back in April. Both actors’ — “our two beloved heroines and heroes,” raved Lee — contracts were up at the end of Season 7.
Season 8 will see a shift in showrunner, as David Amann is stepping down. Amann held the position for one season, as he took the reigns from series creator Andrew Marlowe after the sixth round of the crime procedural.
