by at . Comments

Fans of Castle enjoyed the recent appearance of Rick's ex-wife on the show.

But they shouldn't count on another Helen sighting any time soon.

TV Guide reports that actress Darby Stanchfield - who has appeared on other hit shows such as Mad Men, The Mentalist and Private Practice, isn't signed on to return any time soon. She may be back at some point, however, assuming Castle earns a second season pick-up.

Castle Quotes

Sometimes the hardest things in life are the things most worth doing.


The moment we met my life became extraordinary. You taught me more about myself than I knew there was to learn. You are the joy in my heart. You are the last person I want to see every night before I close my eyes. I love you Katherine Beckett and the mystery of you is the one I want to spend the rest of my life exploring. I promise to love you, to be your friend and your partner in crime and life till death do us part and for the time of our lives.
