Rachel Bilson needn't worry about leaving Nashville behind, because she's bagged herself a new starring role already.

That role comes courtesy of Castle creators Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W Marlowe, who are basically just making Castle again. Not that we're complaining.

The upcoming series will be called Take Two, according to Vulture, and will star Bilson as a former actress who played a police officer, and who then ends up working with a real private investigator.

Castle, for those who didn't catch it, followed the partnership of Richard Castle the mystery novelist and Beckett the police detective. See the similarities?

The news of Rachel's latest TV project follows the whispers that she's leaving country music drama Nashville after appearing in the series for just one season.

Bilson had a recurring role in the show as Alyssa Greene, who had a fun 'will they/won't they' thing with Deacon Claybourne.

Despite sharing a kiss during the season five finale, if the rumours are true then we guess no, they won't be getting together after all.

Meanwhile, the original star of Castle, Stana Katic, has signed on for Amazon's latest original series Absentia, a gritty murder mystery about an FBI agent caught up in a serial killer case.

Take Two is set to air on ABC.
