The light drama Castle, starring Nathan Fillion as mystery writer Richard Castle who works with the NYPD, often featured a segment with the fictional author playing poker with real-life authors such as Michael Connelly, James Patterson and the late Stephen J Cannell.

For fans of the TV series -- and the authors -- these scenes were an extra treat, a wink for avid readers and viewers.

But the scenes haven't been a part of the ABC series since the death last September of Cannell.

The poker games will be back with Castle's April 11 episode, which airs at 10 p.m.

Richard Castle will be joined by his regular poker buddy Michael Connelly. Dennis Lehane also will be at the table. A new guy will be joining the group, too.

And the poker buddies will be commenting on the loss of their colleague.

"There's a nod to Cannell in that a chair at the poker table. [The chair] is left empty and a glass of scotch is placed there," Connelly told me in an email.

The scene is quite humorous as Connelly and Lehane -- and Castle -- talk about the movies that have been made from their novels. Connelly and Lehane prove to be quite the actors and both are a pleasure to watch. They seem as if they had a great time doing the scene.

This is a poker game to gamble on. And here's a sneak peek.

Cannell's final appearance on Castle was the May 17, 2010, episode, "A Deadly Game."

Cannell, who died from melanoma, held myriad roles in Hollywood. He produced such popular TV series as The Rockford Files, The A-Team, Wiseguy, 21 Jump Street and The Commish.
He wrote the Shane Scully novels; the 10th in this series, The Prostitutes' Ball (2010), was released after his death. He often popped up as cameo roles in a variety of TV series and movies. And he was considered an all-around nice guy.

Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be at
the internet the simplest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you,
I definitely get annoyed at the same time as people consider issues that they plainly do not realize about.
You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as outlined
out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog
and was curious what all is required to get
setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or
advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
newest twitter updates. I've been looking for
a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I
truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
