It’s official: Castle and Beckett fans don’t have to worry about the fate of their favorite couple. Stana Katic has officially signed on to Castle’s eighth season, which was renewed just last week.

The show will undergo a showrunner change heading into its new season, but with both Nathan Fillion and now Katic on board, viewers can breathe a sigh of relief.

It seems that the season 7 finale, which just aired last night, was right about one thing: The future is bright.
