Paxton, who played Detective Frank Rourke on the freshman drama, passed away on February 25th. The series, a reboot of the 2001 film, also stars Justin Cornwell, Katrina Law, Drew Van Acker, Lex Scott Davis, Julie Benz, Christina Vidal, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
According to Deadline, this Thursday’s episode of Training Day will include a “special dedication” to the actor. Filming on Training Day‘s first season wrapped before Paxton’s unexpected death, so the actor will still be featured throughout the rest of the season. However, it’s still unclear if CBS will renew the show for a second season or not.
Ratings were already low for the reboot series before Paxton’s passing. So far, Training Day is averaging a 0.77 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.165 million viewers.
New episodes of Training Day air on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
