Summer has signed on to co-star as a private investigator in the untitled season 8, episode 14 of Castle, currently filming in Los Angeles, reported today TVline. If you remember, Nathan officially invited Summer to be in an episode of Castle season 8 during the Firefly panel at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2015. Many Browncoats and Summer fans, - and maybe Castle fans too -, have been waiting for this Firefly reunion between Summer and Nathan for a long time and now it's happening!
Summer will play Kendall Frost, "a provocative private detective in Los Angeles who competes with — you guessed it — Castle to solve a deadly mystery." Summer’s episode should air around March 2016.
UPDATE: Molly Quinn has posted the first image of Summer on set of Castle.
Nathan Fillion's crime drama has resumed filming after their holiday hiatus, with new episodes returning February 8, 2016 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. With ratings dipping and an audience that’s growing older, season 8 might be the last for Castle and consequently the last chance to see Summer reunite with his Firefly co-star Nathan Fillion in Castle.
This won’t be the first time “Castle” has hosted “Firefly” reunion. Previous episodes have welcomed former Serenity crew members Gina Torres and Adam Baldwin, guest-starring with their former captain. Summer and Nathan also recently teamed up for an episode of fellow Firefly star Alan Tudyk's web series 'Con Man.'
Are you excited about Summer's guest appearance in Castle? Are you hoping for heaps of fanservice and nods to Firefly (like what happened when Summer guest starred on Chuck)? I would love to hear Alexis Castle (Nathan Fillion) describe Summer's character as "a creature of extraordinary grace" and learn that she has a dark secret that also involves dancing. Got any better ideas? Put them in the comments below!
Of course we will keep you informed if we have anything new on Summer's participation in Castle, such as the official synopsis or the airdate of episode 3.14, or the first photos of Summer on set of Castle.
On a side note, thank you to our new admin Cindy for posting the news when the other admins weren't online. Well done!
