Castle Season Five Premiere Scoop: A Meaningful Moment

by at . Comments

Castle is aiming to be the anti-Moonlighting.

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine, series creator Andrew Marlowe said little time will have gone by on the Castle Season 5 premiere when we catch back up with Castle and Beckett and he explains why:

"We think it's important to show the fans what this moment means for Beckett and Castle and how it may change and complicate their relationship."

Marlowe also makes it very clear that Castle and Beckett will not have engaged in a one-night stand.

He says Moonlighting made a "big mistake" by splitting up its leads so quickly after a similar bedroom romp and his show is "taking a much different approach."

With the mystery of Caskett's future now sort of solved, Marlowe adds that another storyline will come to an end on Season 5: the identity of Beckett's mother's killer.

"We do want to give Beckett some level of resolution," he says. "It's time to move beyond that mystery, but it leads to an explosive confrontation."
