The 

Castle cast won’t start filming Season 6 until July 9, but SpoilerTV already has some juicy scoop about the premiere. According to the site, producers are looking to cast two new characters before filming begins.

The first character, called PI, could be a possible love interest for Alexis Castle, who hasn’t dated anyone since splitting with Ashley way back in Season 4. This new fella, who is described as “an early 20's free spirit,” will reportedly meet Castle’s daughter while on vacation and is slated to have a recurring role. We know that Castle is a hilariously overprotective dad, so seeing him interact with Alexis’ potential beau is bound to make for some great television.  

The second newbie is another female detective who could be giving Kate Beckett a run for her money, assuming she’s still in New York. Her name is Rachel McCord and she’s described as a “no-nonsense, intelligent detective in her 30s”. She is scheduled to be around for at least three episodes.

Hmm, could Rachel be a part of the “complicated” future ahead for Castle and Beckett? Only time will tell!
