A lot of things have come out on this last days about the castings for the new shows and existing shows coming this fall.
First of all is a not so very good news (at least for me): Captain Gates is no more. Yes, Castle will not have the adorably grumpy Captain coming fall, as Penny Johnson Jerald will not be returning for season 8. I really don’t like this, and I suspect that the game plan will be putting Beckett in charge of the 12th, but I don’t think that’s right… that’s jumping way to many hoops to get there.
On a much happier note, Sendhil Ramamurthy will reprise his role as Mohinder in Heroes Reborn. I always loved Mohinder, and I LOVE Sandhil, so I’m pretty excited about this!
Speaking of Heroes of some sort, Arrow’s Tommy will move to Chicago. Yes, Colin Donnell is the new series regular at Chicago Med, and he’s thought to be playing a doctor in pediatrics… oh my… By the way, Chicago Med was just pushed up to the fall!!!!! Yeah!
Joel McHale, fresh out of Community, just landed the first guest role in the X-Files revival. He’ll be playing Tad O’Malley, who is a conservative Internet news anchor who becomes an unlikely support for Mulder. Excitement forming!
And I guess it’s time to catch up on Elementary, as John Noble was cast to play Sherlock’s dad next season!!!
Agents of SHIELD upped two of its members to series regular, Henry Simmons, who plays Mack and newcomer Luke Mitchell, a.k.a. Lincoln. I’m quite happy about this, though not having yet seen the last 5 episodes of the season, I’m a bit wary of both of them. In the meantime, I really want to know what’s Nick Blood’s status, because that’s the one I want to stick around.
If I still watched Grey’s Anatomy, I would be pretty happy about this news. Jason George was just promoted to series regular. I’m still happy for Jason though, I absolutely love him 🙂 .
