Nathan Fillion isn’t taking his badge off anytime soon. ABC just announced they’ve ordered a third season of The Rookie for the 2020-21 broadcast season.
The comedy-drama stars Fillion as 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. The cast also includes Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin, Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neil, Afton Williamson, and Eric Winter.
The second season of The Rookie averaged a 0.64 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4.32 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s a 12% decrease in the demo and a 4% increase in overall viewership. Compared to other ABC scripted series, The Rookie has been a middle-of-the-road performer.

Love, love, love this show! Please let there be a season 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 and 7+….
I love this show, I am very excited it was continued. I’m super sad that Afton Williamson was not in season 2. Does anyone know if she is back in season 3?
I am extremely happy The Rookie has been renewed for a third season, to leave it at the end of two would have been a disaster for its fans Nolan has changed his whole life to become a middle aged rookie but he shows a man who is going to make it in his new life and I want to know how he gets out of the mess at the end of season two. This is by far one of the best shows on tv it has drama and comedy mixed in pretty decent story lines and ABC needs to… Read more »
