In the latest round of Castle Season 8 news, the mastermind behind the murder of Johanna Beckett will be back on the scene.
Co-showrunner Terence Paul Winter told TVLine that Senator William Bracken will return “in a surprising way.”
Is he still behind bars? Is Bracken manipulating the push for Kate Beckett to make her own political run, or is he trying to destroy it?
At this point, it’s anyone’s guess, but Jack Coleman will definitely be busy this fall, as he not only returns to Castle but will also be back for NBC’s Heroes Reborn which premieres Sept. 24th.
Castle returns on Monday, Sept. 21st with part one of a two-part premiere. The first episode, titled “XY” will introduce several new characters including Hayley Vargas (Toks Olagundoye), a security specialist and former Scotland Yard investigator, as well as new tech analyst Vikram Singh (Sunkrish Bala).
Also, actress Ann Cusack will guest star in the two-parter as Rita, a woman with a unique skill set who works for a top-secret organization and has a surprising connection to Castle.
