Yay! Nathan Fillion is heading back to series television! I've just received confirmation that ABC has picked up Nathan's pilot, Castle.

Written by Andrew Marlowe (the guy behind a little movie called Air Force One), Castle is the story of a mystery writer who advises the New York City police on particularly difficult cases. (Sort of like how after 9/11 the feds asked screenwriters to come up with the craziest terrorist scenarios they could think of, in hopes of being better equipped to deal with the possibilities.)

To make the news even better, I've also just confirmed that the Cupid do-over (from original creator and Veronica Mars mastermind Rob Thomas) has been picked up to series as well.

More Captain Mal Reynolds and more Rob Thomas? Today is a very good day for TV!
