Tv Season Info

In the fourth series of this crime drama, by-the-book captain Victoria Gates (Penny Johns Jerald) takes command of the 12th Precinct, and though she's displeased to have Castle (Nathan Fillion) working alongside her detectives, she finds ways to tolerate him. Beckett (Stana Katic) returns to work after recuperating from being shot, and both she and Castle are determined to find her shooter. Beckett also deals with PTSD, but she tries to hide it from her coworkers. At one point, Castle and Beckett are abducted and handcuffed together, with no memory of how they got into that situation. Meanwhile, Alexis (Molly Quinn) begins an internship assisting Lanie (Tamala Jones) in the ME's office; and Ryan (Seamus Dever) finally marries his longtime girlfriend.

Critic Reviews for Castle Season 4

Just when you think its over, the last few minutes of the show set up the season to come.

Feb 14, 2017 | Full Review…

I don't watch the show for dark, sprawling conspiracy plot lines and Emmy-bait performances, and the premiere, like last season's finale, just about choked to death on them.

Sep 19, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…

While the first hour of season four maintains the more serialized approach of the prior episode, it does lay the groundwork for returning to the show's episodic, murder-of-the-week structure.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Castle is a tirelessly charming series that tested fans with a bit of deep drama at the end of season three and seems to have come out of it as a stronger and more confident series.

May 9, 2017 | Full Review…

I enjoy Castle. It's one of the shows for which I never miss an episode. But the reason I watch it is not because it's a hard-hitting drama that leaves me on the edge of my seat. It's a silly cop show that's a lot of fun...with some great dialogue.

Sep 6, 2013 | Full Review…

There was definitely a spike in screen time for Ryan and Esposito. Let's hope this continues throughout the season, shall we? If anyone deserves it, it is these two.

  • Jul 25, 2020
    The former captain is missed and they are not sure what to do with Penny Johnson Jerald talent but it is still a blast.
  • Oct 03, 2019
    los crímenes no para y las risas de castle tampoco faltaron para poner humor a la investigación.
