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!

Castle

The moment that I met you my life became extraordinary. You taught me to be my best self. To look forward to tomorrow's adventures and when I was vulnerable you were strong. I love you Richard Castle and I want to live my life in the warmth of your smile and the strength of your embrace. I promise you I will love you. I will be your friend and your partner in crime and in life. Always.
