TNT to Present Marathon of "Castle" Episodes as Hit Crime-Drama Gears Up to Launch Fourth Season on ABC

Castle Marathon: Thursday, Sept. 15, 3-11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT

Castle Season 4 Premiere: Monday, Sept. 19, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on ABC

TNT will present a special eight-hour marathon of Castle episodes as a build-up to the show's fourth-season premiere on ABC. TNT, which earlier this summer secured the exclusive off-network cable rights to the hit series from Disney-ABC Domestic Television, will present eight memorable episodes of Castle on Thursday, Sept. 15, beginning at 3 p.m. (ET/PT). The fourth season of the hit crime-drama will launch on ABC Monday, Sept. 19, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). In addition, the complete third season will be available on DVD beginning Sept. 20.

Castle stars Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Desperate Housewives) and Stana Katic (Quantum of Solace, TNT's The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice). The series centers on the life of Richard Castle (Fillion), a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother. He is creatively blocked until the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books. Castle finds inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Katic), a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clash, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case is solved, Castle and Beckett continue to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work.

Castle also stars Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan and Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers. Castle is produced by ABC Studios. Andrew Marlowe is the show's creator/executive producer, along with executive producers Rob Bowman, David Amann, Laurie Zaks and Armyan Bernstein.

TNT's Castle marathon will include one episode from the series' first season, two from the second and five from the recently completed third season. The marathon will climax with a presentation of the season 3 finale. Castle is set to become a regular fixture in the TNT lineup in summer 2012.

The following is the complete schedule for TNT's Sept. 15 marathon of Castle episodes (all times shown are ET/PT):

3 p.m. - "A Chill Goes Through Her Veins" - A frozen woman found at a construction site leads Castle and Beckett to a years-old mystery.

4 p.m. - "A Rose for Everafter" - While investigating the death of a bridesmaid at a wedding, Castle runs into an old flame (Alyssa Milano).

8 p.m. - "Nikki Heat" - When Castle's novel Heat Wave becomes a movie, actress Natalie Rhodes accepts Beckett's invitation to visit and learn about the character she will play. Natalie observes Castle and Beckett's investigation of the murder of a matchmaker.
