The first major casting announce has been made for the new season. Julian Sands from "The Wire" will be guesting as a Hamptons police officer who assists Beckett in the immediate aftermath of the season six finale. Another addition is Jon Lindstrom, whose most recent work includes "General Hospital."
The first details are emerging about the season premiere for "Castle." David Amann will be writing the episodes with Rob Bowman directing. The season premiere appears to be a contained episode in so far that there won't be a "to be continued" at the end.
A secret investigation conducted by Beckett related to her mother's murder goes awry when a man she has been surveilling is killed. When evidence links Beckett to the victim, she and Castle become the target of a manhunt that puts both of them in grave danger.
