ABC has brought Rookie Blue, their summer cop series, back for a fourth season. The show is produced in Canada so its fate isn’t neccesarily dependent on US ratings. However, whether ABCcancels the series or wants to bring it back certainly is. Will Rookie Blue be back for a fifth season? Time will tell.
The fourth season of Rookie Blue typically airs Thursday nights and there are 13 new episodes once again. The cast includes Missy Peregrym, Gregory Smith, Eric Johnson, Travis Milne, Peter Mooney, Enuka Okuma, Charlotte Sullivan, and Ben Bass.
