With so much talent and skill, she did not deserve to be let go that way.However, Stana has shone bright in all her gigs after Castle.Fillion’s team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.[From Us Weekly] Unlike the Archie Panjabi-Julianna Margulies situation where I was firmly on one side (Team Panjabi), I don’t know where to come down on this Katic-Fillion beef.while the two lead characters — who tied the knot during a season 6 episode in 2014 — have a strong bond, the same sadly cannot be said for the stars themselves.“Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion completely despise each other,” the source tells Us.
On Monday, ABC suddenly announced that Stana Katic would be leaving the series at the end of this season, Season 8.After spending seven years on Castle playing an eccentric author/police consultant, The Rookie will have Fillion actually emerge from the sidelines to put on a uniform to be a cop Based on a true story, dramedy series will center on John Nolan (Fillion), a forty-something man who makes a radical career turn that lands him as the oldest rookie in the LAPD.Having abandoned a comfortably tranquil small-town existence, John decides to navigate an existence in Los Angeles, pursuing a dream that has nothing to do with showbiz, as a rookie cop, working with uniformed peers who are generally twenty years younger than him, while facing all the bodily dangers and political pitfalls it brings.It's a short first look but provides a pretty concise thesis statement for the show: “I hate what you represent: a walking mid-life crisis." Nathan Fillion is of course best known for his starring role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Fox’s ignominiously axed, ahead-of-its-time, 2002-2003 space/sci-fi/western series, Firefly, He followed that up with a much lengthier run – opposite Stana Katic – as the title star of ABC crime procedural Castle.Now, two years after that series came to a (controversially sloppy) close, Fillion has finalized a deal to return to ABC with a series called The Rookie. The network then gave it a straight-to-series order, making Nathan Fillion will not only the star of the show, but an executive producer as well.The Rookie stands as Fillion’s first regular series role since the 2016 conclusion of Castle.He’s since had appearances on former Firefly co-star Alan Tudyk’s Vimeo series Con Man, a memorable guest turn on Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, reprised his recurring role on Modern Family and lent his voice to animated fantasy films Yamasong: March of the Hollows and Cars 3.He always thought the show was just about Richard Castle, and Beckett supported Castle’s stories. the writers and producers seemed to want Castle and Beckett to be equals. So there was just a fundamental misjudgment on someone’s part. His producing partner, Hawley, got his first break as an associate producer on Castle, eventually working his way up to executive producer/showrunner.He’s also worked on Fox crime drama The Following and ABC forensic procedural Body of Proof.
