What’s This TV Show About?
An ABC comedy-drama, The Rookie stars Nathan Fillion, Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin, Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neil, Afton Williamson, and Eric Winter. The story centers on John Nolan (Fillion), a small-town guy who, after a life-changing experience, decides to pursue his dream of being an LAPD officer. Now he’s the oldest rookie on the force, and the brass thinks he’s just having a midlife crisis. He’s got to keep up with his younger co-workers (not to mention young criminals) or he’ll risk lives. Maybe though, he can use the experience he’s gained with age, and the determination he has developed over the years, to make a real go of it. Either way, he’s got a secret weapon — his sense of humor.

What do you think? Are you glad that The Rookie TV show has been renewed for a second season? How would you feel if ABC had cancelled this TV series, instead?
They need to showcase the rookies sense of humor more. I like the show, show the humanity of the cops more and less of the grime of crime, we know that’s there. I watch it to enjoy myself and that burying case was too gruesome for me. I’d rather see a smile on the rookies face.
