Castle is an American crime drama television series, which premiered on ABC on March 9, 2009. The series is produced jointly by Beacon Pictures and ABC Studios. Created by Andrew W. Marlowe, it primarily traces the lives of Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), a best-selling mystery novelist, and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), an NYPD homicide detective, as they solve various unusual crimes in New York City. Detective Beckett is initially infuriated at the thought of working with a writer and goes to great lengths to keep him out of her way. However, the two soon start developing feelings for each other. The overarching plot of the series focuses on the romantic tension between the two lead characters, as well as the unsolved homicide of Beckett's mother.

Premise[edit]

Castle follows Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, a famous mystery novelist who has killed off the main character in his book series and has writer's block. He is brought in by the NYPD for questioning regarding a copy-cat murder based on one of his novels. He is intrigued by this new window into crime and murder, and uses his connection with the Mayor to charm his way into shadowing Detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic. Castle decides to use Beckett as the model for Nikki Heat, the main character of his next book series. Beckett, an avid reader of Castle's books, initially disapproves of having Castle shadow her on her cases, but later warms up and recognizes Castle as a useful resource in her team's investigations.

Main cast[edit]

Recurring characters[edit]

Real-life writers Stephen J. Cannell, James Patterson, Dennis Lehane, and Michael Connelly appear as themselves during periodic games of poker at Castle's apartment. Typically, they discuss Castle and Beckett's current case and tease Castle about his involvement with Beckett. On September 30, 2010, Cannell died in real life. The characters kept an empty chair at the poker table in his honor for a year.

Tie-in works[edit]

In the series, Castle writes a novel titled Heat Wave. As a tie-in, ABC and sister publisher Hyperion Books released that novel as a real book (ISBN 978-1-4013-2382-0) with "Richard Castle" as the author. It is entirely in character from the dedication to the acknowledgments, although the latter mentions the principal cast and the show's creators by name.[63] ABC released the first half of the novel in weekly increments on their website.[64] The complete novel was published in September 2009 as a hardcover, debuting at No. 26 on The New York Times Best Seller list.[65] In its fourth week on the list, Heat Wave broke into the top 10 at #6.[66] Heat Wave was released in paperback (ISBN 978-1-4013-1040-0) on July 27, 2010 and debuted at No. 34 on The New York Times bestseller Paperback Mass-Market list.[67] It once again appeared on The New York Times bestseller list on May 27, 2012 at #19.[68]

Naked Heat (ISBN 978-1-4013-2402-5), the sequel to Heat Wave, was released on September 28, 2010.[69] Naked Heat debuted at No. 7 on the New York Times Best Seller list.[70] As they did with Heat Wave, ABC released a series of the early chapters online as a promotional tool.[71]

A third novel, titled Heat Rises (ISBN 978-1-4013-2443-8), was released on September 20, 2011.[72] It debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times bestseller list on October 9, 2011[73][74] and at No. 5 on the USA TODAY Best-Selling Books list.[75]

The season three finale introduced a graphic novel based on Castle's previous novel character, Derrick Storm. Castle: Richard Castle's Deadly Storm was published by Marvel Comics on September 28, 2011.[76] It debuted at No. 3 on The New York Times bestseller list on October 16, 2011.[77]

A fourth novel, titled Frozen Heat (ISBN 978-1-4013-2444-5), was released on September 11, 2012,[78] and debuted on The New York Times bestseller list at No. 7 on September 23, 2012.[79]
