ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5: New photos of Nathan Fillion, cast

The season 5 premiere of “Castle” on September 24 is less than a month away, and we now have something that has become an annual traditional for many scripted shows — the release of some brand-new publicity images.

Usually when you look at these sort of things, they are mostly just creative and colorful ways to bring some more attention to the cast. The same can be said for this glammed-up group this year, but there is also one potential spoiler that we want to point out here — in one of the photos below, Beckett is clearly wearing her badge. In other words, don’t look for her to be staying away from the force for too long following what happened in the finale last May. (Then again, did you really expect her to leave for any sort of extended period of time?)

Also of note here — despite the two parties finally hooking up during last season’s finale, the publicity photos released do not show Castle and Beckett being romantic in any way. Don’t read too much into this, as we know that they are together at the start of the season and we know that they’re going to give this the best shot that they can. The real explanation that we can offer up at the moment for this is simply that there is no need to tease us any more in photos what we already know to be fact. (Until this time, promotional images were all Castle / Beckett fans really had.)

What do you think about some of the images for this new season — and do you have a favorite from the group? We want to hear some of your thoughts below!┬áTo check out some more scoop pertaining to Beckett’s therapist on the new season, be sure to head on over to this link
