Castle Season 6 has only been filming for a few weeks, but thanks to a sneak peek of the season from TV Guide, we know that the hit crime procedural hasn’t lost its touch. According to the site, the new season will promise several big changes for many central characters, including “birth, a new love interest for one character and possibly a wedding.”

As for that crucial question Castle asked Beckett in the Season 5 finale? Show creator Andrew Marlowe promises that viewers will have an answer either way by the September 23 premiere. “Regardless of her answer, it is going to significantly change their relationship.”

And while we got especially excited at the mention of a birth this season, it doesn’t look like there are any Caskett babies on the horizon just yet. The new arrival is actually Jenny and Ryan’s child, who will make his or her debut in a “special episode.”

The core cast will also be joined by several newcomers, including a “tough Fed whom Beckett wants to emulate” played by House’s Lisa Edelstein, a new love interest for Alexis who moves into Castle’s loft, and reappearances from Senator Bracken and Castle’s dad — that’s a lot of drama to fit into just one season!
