Andrew W. Marlowe has stepped down from his role as showrunner of this ABC hit, a capacity he's held since the first day of filming.
Marlowe will remain prominently involved with the series, but David Amann - who joined Castle as an executive producer on Season 3 - will take over lead duties going into Castle Season 7.
"Over the past four seasons, David has proven himself to be a tremendous leader and a great steward of our show’s unique voice,” Marlowe said in a statement. “I’m excited to continue our creative collaboration as he assumes his new responsibilities."
Among the popular episodes penned by Amann are the Castle Season 5 premiere, “After the Storm,” along with “Under Fire,” “Disciple," “In the Belly of the Beast and "That ’70s Show."
What will this news mean for Castle going forward?
It's impossible to say at the moment, but react now!
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.
