Status for season 6
The series is NOT cancelled. However, it has not yet been renewed or cancelled for season 6
The Rookie season 3's premiere date is January 3rd, 2021.
Starting over isn't easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being a Los Angeles police officer. As the force's oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can't keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he'll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life. "The Rookie" stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan, Mekia Cox as Nyla Harper, Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez, Richard T. Jones as Sergeant Wade Grey, Titus Makin Jr. as Jackson West, Melissa O'Neil as Lucy Chen and Eric Winter as Tim Bradford. Alexi Hawley is writer and executive producer. Mark Gordon, Nathan Fillion, Michelle Chapman, Jon Steinberg, Bill Norcross, Terence Paul Winter, and Rob Bowman are executive producers on the series. "The Rookie" is a co-production with Entertainment One (eOne) and ABC Studios.

debbie brooks says
renew great show
Agreed this is a great series. I love Nolan’s sense of humor and his innocent boy scout Lookout on life. He always sees the best in people but he’s not a dummy, he does realize that things are not always as they appear. He seems to be getting more and more of his cop intuitions. And there’s no way they can leave this last season the way it is. We have to find out if Angela has been kidnapped and if she’s going to make it back safe and sound to be married.
Timothy J Moriarty says
Agreed! Please renew it!!

Mike Quinn says
Please renew this excellent show!!
PLEASE don’t cancel. I love this show!!!
This is the best procedural drama I have yet seen. Not to mention Nathan Fillion’s character is totally believable. If this show is cancelled I won’t know what to watch anymore. It is a well balanced show in my opinion. It is the most accurate to police procedure that I have seen. If its about money I would totally donate to a fund to keep this going.
Marion Emery says
please please please renew wonderful show love all the actors this and The Good Doctor best new ones you only have 5 shows
Please renew this ‘one of a kind’ show. Great cast, terrific story lines and completely entertaining.
Please renew this program. If you do not renew…you will be receiving a visit from the cops because not to renew would be a real crime!
Lillian Munoz says
I love the program… I was expecting to watch it today Sunday May 30,2021! When is supposed to begin again? Does anyone knows?
One of the best shows on TV. I can’t believel that this is even up for discussion. I would love to know what the backstory is on this. It seems like everyone loves Nathan Fillion, and the show, so what’s going on that we don’t know about? If it’s canceled, it’ll just be on par with everything else that I watch. I find a show I really like, get involved with it and to no one’s surprise, it gets canceled!
Richard Goode says
Why does everything happen to Fillion’s character? His character is a bullet magnet. Even his Captain died because of something he did. I would not want to be his partner.
This is a MUST to renew! I can’t wait for the next episode each week! I was always a Castle fan – but this is even better. I love Fillion’s character more in the rookie!
R. Hill says
This is a great show. My wife and I enjoy the roller coaster ride with each episode. Full of great characters! I can’t wait for season 3 to start …please renew !!!
Please renew The Rookie for a full season! It has a great cast and a great police drama.
Mike Mac Innis says
This is a wonderful show hope its renewed my whole family loves The Rookie . So do everyone a favor and RENEW THE ROOKIE FOR A FULL SEASON PLEASE !! Thanks !!!
This season is particularly good in the sensitive treatment of cop/citizen relations, violence, etc. and is different from all other procedural cop programs!
Needs to continue!
Melody Blaz says
This is my favorite show… it is NOT your typical Police show… it digs sometimes deep into the person that is the Police Officer that in todays world is so very important.. as too many people see Police Officers as some kind of non human not like the rest of us… this show shows us how like us they are. I was married to a Policeman for going on 25 years… and the Police side of the show is well depicted. Soooo thank you for this show that I am very invested in… and am asking for it to be renewed PLEASE I love this show.. and its characters… be careful with our people… please don’t kill off any of our wonderful characters that we love so much. Personally asking that Tim and Lucy explore their feelings cuz they clearly have chemistry… speaking as someone who has lived in the world… Tim would never step over that line as Lucy’s TO… he would clearly be able to take their relationship to the next level. It broke my heart when Lucy told Tim she was developing feelings for him and then went just kidding… men don’t like being messed with that way… it wasn’t funny… and with Tim’s life with his wife he would clearly be cautious but his relationship with Lucy has truly developed over time…and PS if Tim didn’t have significant feelings for Lucy he would never given up his immediate promotion… first of all he has spent some time taking the test to become a SGT and when he finally does he says thanks but no thanks I am going to wait on that… to finish a few weeks as Lucy’s TO… the SGT list only lasts a specific amount of time and when that time has ended he would have to take the test all over again… if he took his promotion he would also get a pay raise… and start his time in rank for his future promotion…. so since he has given up sooo much for Lucy… he deserves having their relationship grow… besides most of the females watching this show waiting for that moment.. as Nathan said in one the cast question and answers… he said the women are keep thinking “ahhhh he really does like her” and he was absolutely right… so since you know what your female audience wants PLEASE give it to them… Tim and Lucy together PLEASE
But how everything happens to him because he’s the main character duh
