'Castle' Season 5 Cast Pictures (PHOTOS)

As if you needed a reminder the new season of "Castle" was around the corner, ABC released several new "Castle" Season 5 promo shots.

There's the smirking Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, smoldering Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett and the rest of the cast in new, back alley shots. Boxes in dark alleys never looked that good.

Where does Season 5 pickup? The morning after the Season 4 finale. "So you liked it?" Beckett asks in a new promo, buttoning her shirt. "Yeah," Castle replies. "Me too," Beckett says.

Check out the promo below the new photos.
