Summer has never been an easy time for loyal television viewers. The advent of cable and new summer shows have made it easier, but it is still not much fun waiting on your favorite show to come back from hiatus. On the other hand, the internet has given us loyal fans more to enjoy, in a variety of ways. In addition to the online availability of episode clips and even full episodes, news, rumors and even spoiler information is readily accessible with a few simple keystrokes.
So, even though there may not be any new "Castle" for fans to watch right now, never fear, loyal viewers. Sources indicate that there will be much to rejoice about come the fall. During the last three days in the third week of September 2011, there will be plenty of brand new stories coming to you, featuring the fictional Mr. Richard Castle, mystery writer, and his own fictional characters, Jameson Rook, Nikki Heat, and even the oft-referenced Derrick Storm.
The Season 4 premiere is scheduled to air on September 19, followed by Richard Castle's latest novel "Heat Rises" on September 20 and then on September 21, Castle's other series, featuring main character Derrick Storm, will debut in a graphic novel titled "Castle: Deadly Storm."
According to various sources, including Michael Ausiello from TVLine, the Season 4 opening episode is reported to have a much more positive title than the Season 3 finale, "Knockout," did. The tile "Rise" is one which no doubt somehow ties into the similarly designated new Richard Castle novel.
While we may know its name, the new Nikki Heat novel's plot remains somewhat of a mystery (pun most definitely intended), but it will no doubt be just as good as its two predecessors and just as much of a fun show extension for fans.
"Castle: Deadly Storm" is perhaps the most intriguing of the three new additions to the "Castle" family. This hardbound graphic novel will feature the art of Lan Medina as well as the work of Brian Bendis and Kelly Sue DeConnick. The writers of this Marvel Enterprises publication worked alongside "Castle" creator Andrew Marlowe in order to bring his fictional character's fictional character to brilliant Technicolor life. Derrick Storm is that other staple of the mystery novel, a private investigator. According to the blurb, the story somehow involves the Central Intelligence Agency, more commonly known as the CIA.
