First look: Nathan Fillion returns to ABC as The Rookie
ABC has released the first image and new details for Nathan Fillion's return to series television. Inspired by a true story, The Rookie stars the 47-year-old Castle alum as the oldest police rookie in LAPD history. "As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis," reads the show's logline. "If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination, and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.” The Rookie received a straight to series order last October. UPDATE: Watch ABC's first teaser for The Rookie.

ABC's Deception vs. CBS' Instinct: Which is the most Castle-like new show?
The new Sunday night shows both appear to owe a debt to Castle. "If you’re a fan of the television subgenre that pairs a gifted, impulsive, often childlike male civilian with a tough, straight-arrow, lonely female cop, then you were probably a fan of Castle, one of the most successful shows of the type," says Mike Hale. (Other recent or current examples: The Mentalist, Perception, Forever, A.P.B., Lucifer.) You’re also in luck. Maybe. Sunday night brings not one but two new examples of the genre."

Stana Katic on her abrupt Castle exit: “It hurt and it was a harsh ending”
While discussing her new Amazon thriller Absentia, Katic offered some thoughts to Entertainment Weekly on her controversial Castle departure: “I’m actually still not clear on the thought process behind the way that it went down. It hurt and it was a harsh ending, but now, nearly two years later…I met so many beautiful people on that project, and we collaborated on something really unique in that it’s not every day that you get a show, or a series, that has eight seasons and that it was a hit for the network. It would be a disservice to those people, to the work that we did together, and to my work, which I feel contributed, in part, to the success of the show, to be anything but grateful because, at the end of the day, that was a fantastic platform. It was a formative experience, and we told a love story that I feel moved people, touched people, and I can’t be anything but glad that I was a part of something like that. I hope it remains something special in viewers’ minds forever.”
