Andrew W. Marlowe Steps Down as Castle Showrunner

at . Comments

There's been a behind-the-scenes Castle shakeup.

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.

Not Buying It

"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!
