'Castle' Season 5: 'Way more fun, way more exciting and extremely sexy!'

stana-katic-nathan-fillion-castle-S5-desk.jpgGuess what? "Castle"returns next Monday (Sept. 24)! If the idea of Castle ( Nathan Fillion) and Beckett ( Stana Katic) exploding your TV with their sizzling-hot chemistry, don't bother tuning in.

But if you're into that sort of thing, be warned. As co-star Tamala Jones (Beckett's BFF Lanie Parish) tells us, "Put your seatbelts on, 'Castle' fans, because we're going to take you on a very wild ride this season!"

Both Fillion and Katic are "on fire," says Jones. (Yeah, we noticed that in the premiere.) "I told Stana, 'Honey, you are giving them supermodel tough badass b**** this season!' This is the best I've seen her in this character since we started 'Castle.'

So how does Fillion match up to this fierce tigress?

"I think we're really going to find out how sexy Castle really is this season," Jones says. "We've seen him with other women and kinda playing the field, but [now] we're really going to see that romantic sexy manly man.

"You're going to be able to smell his cologne through the screen, that's how sexy he is!" Jones enthuses. "It's way more playful than last season, and lighter, and just to see those two and their interaction is spectacular."

"Castle" returns Monday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. on ABC. Can you handle it?
