TV’s best mystery writer-cum-detective, Richard Castle (played by Nathan Fillion on ABC’s Castle) is back with the seventh novel in his Nikki Heat series. It’s called Driving Heat, and EW has the exclusive cover reveal and first chapter excerpt right here.

Driving Heat follows Nikki Heat, the NYPD’s top homicide detective, who’s just been promoted to captain. But when a challenging new case comes her way, her Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter fiancé, James Rook, gets deep into his own investigation. Can their relationship—personally and professionally—withstand these problematic crossed paths?

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.

Stana Katic is set to return to “Castle” for its eighth season, Variety has learned. The star has closed her deal, after long negotiations.

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.

CASTLE’s leading lady will officially be a part of season 8: Stana Katic (Beckett) has signed a deal to return for next year, ABC has confirmed. (Nathan Fillion (Castle) signed on for season 8 last month.)

Last night’s season finale featured Beckett at a crossroads as she had to decide whether she’d pursue becoming a captain or going down the path of a political career. By the end of the hour, she was undecided, so viewers will get some resolution to that story.

The upcoming season will feature some behind-the-scenes changes, however. As previously reported, current showrunner David Amann is stepping down, with long-time CASTLE writer Terence Paul Winter and former CASTLE writer/current THE FOLLOWING co-showrunner Alexi Hawley taking over as co-showrunners. Additionally, CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller confirmed on Twitter that they’re leaving the series. (Marlowe and Miller co-wrote last night’s excellent finale.)

Castle’s behind-the-scenes shuffle isn’t over just yet.

Not 24 hours after it was announced that longtime Castle scribe Terence Paul Winter was stepping up as showrunner for the recently ordered Season 8, TVLine has confirmed that Castle alum Alexi Hawley is returning to the ABC drama, as co-showrunner — the same position he just got done filling on Fox’s freshly snuffed The Following.

Hawley’s Castle resume includes a Seasons 2 through 4 run as a producer, opening with a stint as executive story editor. During that time he also penned nine episodes, including “Kill Shot,” “To Love and Die in L.A.” and the Adam Baldwin-guesting “Headhunters.” His producing credits also include Body of Proof and State of Affairs, the latter of which he created.

The new Winter/Hawley combo fills the void left by David Amann, who is not continuing with Castle into Season 8.

As previously reported, sources confirm for TVLine that negotiations continue between ABC and leading lady Stana Katic.

Though Castle has been renewed for an eighth season, the long-running ABC drama will return with a brand-new showrunner.

Terence Paul Winter—the Castle writer, not the Terence Patrick Winter from Boardwalk Empire—will step in to replace David Amann, who had taken over for original showrunner Andrew Marlowe last season.

Nathan Fillion is signed on to reprise his titular role next season, but there’s still no word on his leading lady Stana Katic.

Castle was among more than 20 ABC series to get renewed this week. But it was bad news for Forever, Resurrection and Cristela, which were canceled.
