Season 4

When viewers first met Richard Castle — a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother — he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work.

Now, after three seasons, Castle and Beckett's relationship has grown even stronger as they've dodged bullets, captured killers and solved countless murder cases in their unorthodox partnership. But in the explosive Season 3 finale, NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery — who we learned had a connection to the unsolved murder of Beckett's mother — was shot and killed by a man tied to that crime. As the episode came to a close, Beckett, who was speaking about her Captain at his funeral, took a bullet from a sniper's rifle and was last seen on the ground with life fading out of her. Will she survive ... ?

Also with Beckett as his muse, Castle used his newfound experience in the field as fodder for his best-selling novels — "Heat Wave" (hardcover published in September 2009, spent 16 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 10 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list; paperback published in April 2010, spent 12 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 11 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list); "Naked Heat" (hardcover released in September 2010 spent 12 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list and 8 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list; paperback published in April 2011, spent 4 weeks each on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists); and a third book, "Heat Rises," which came out in September 2011.

In addition, for the new season, a graphic novel from Marvel made its debut; Richard Castle's "Deadly Storm" came out in September, written by Brian Michael Bendis ("Avengers") and Kelly Sue DeConnick ("Captain America").

"Castle" stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers. Joining the series for Season 4 is Penny Johnson Jerald ("24") as Captain Victoria Gates - aka "Iron Gates" and as by-the-book as they come - who instantly has an issue with Castle ... "He's not a cop, he doesn't belong."

"Castle" is produced by ABC Studios. Andrew Marlowe is the show's creator/executive producer, along with executive producers Rob Bowman, David Amann, Laurie Zaks and Armyan Bernstein.

During "Castle" Season 2, Castle and Beckett's relationship grew stronger as they dodged bullets, captured killers, and solved numerous murder cases in their unorthodox partnership. But by the season two finale, Beckett's new relationship with a robbery detective had pushed Castle away, forcing them both to confront their feelings. When Castle left to finish writing his second Nikki Heat novel, "Naked Heat" (due out September 28), Beckett had to watch him walk away, unable to express her true feelings and unsure whether he would return to the precinct ...

Season 2

"Castle" Season 2 revolves around Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter (Molly Quinn as Alexis), while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother (Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers). When viewers first met Castle, he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in the form of Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases — a fascination stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though Castle and Beckett instantly clashed, sparks of another sort also began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance, as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, the two built on their new relationship, investigating more strange homicides in New York and combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work. With Beckett as his muse, Castle has used his newfound experience in the field as fodder for his latest and soon-to-be-published bestseller, Heat Wave. But in the season finale, Castle, against Beckett's direct order to stay out of her mom's case, unearthed information about that homicide that may end their relationship forever.

As Season 2 begins, Castle is wrestling with how to repair his relationship with Beckett, while struggling to finish Heat Wave. But circumstances force the pair back together to investigate the mysterious murder of a man found dead, tangled in the limbs of a tree. Though their relationship remains rocky, their passion for cracking cases keeps their collaboration cooking. When all is said and done, can Beckett forgive Castle for poking into her past? And can Castle conquer his writer's block long enough to finish his book before its publication deadline?

Season 1

On ABC's "Castle" Season 1, wildly famous mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion, "Desperate Housewives"), who is bored with his own success, learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes depicted in his novels. On the TV show "Castle," Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic, "The Spirit"), a very bright, aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under tight rein. Rick and Kate's styles instantly clash on ABC's "Castle" TV show, yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the killer. And once that case is solved, he and Beckett build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York — as much fun as one can have with death & murder. Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan, "Dharma and Greg") and quick-witted teenage daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn, "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story").

Also starring in the "Castle" TV show are Ruben Santiago-Hudson ("Law & Order") as NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery, Tamala Jones ("Daddy Day Camp") as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas ("Generation Kill") as NYPD Detective Tony Esposito and Seamus Dever ("Army Wives") as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan.
