Jewel Staite to Guest-Star on ‘Castle’

Yes, that’s right – one of the final remaining Firefly alums who hasn’t already guest-starred on Castle is on her way. TV Line reports that Jewel Staite will appear in the May 2 episode of her former co-star’s show on ABC, titled “Much Ado About Murder.” Minor spoilers for the episode’s plot to follow:

According to TV Line, Staite will be playing “the director of a Shakespearean Broadway staging whose movie-star lead turns up dead.” She’ll have plenty of “great scenes” with Nathan Fillion as well, says showrunner Terence Paul Winter.

Personally, I’m hoping that Staite’s guest-star turn is overall more enjoyable to watch that Summer Glau’s recent appearance, which was the only bright spot in an otherwise terrible episode. I’m also curious to see whether the few remaining members of the Serenity crew will make it onto the show before it ends! I guess that’s a tiny reason to hope for another season, just so we can round it out…

Castle‘s upcoming eighteenth episode airs this coming Monday on ABC.
