ABC’s “The Rookie” is one of the biggest shows on the network so not many were surprised when the show received a Season 6 renewal!!
The fans were just excited to get the ball rolling with filming.
Due to the writers strike, the show is set to return in 2024 and filming hasn’t even begun yet which is unfortunate.
Eric Winter confirmed The Rookie cast started filming season 5 via an Instagram Reel posted on June 21 2022!
“I don’t think there is a better way for me to come back for season 5 of The Rookie… Day 1…Dim Day 2 Bradford,” he captioned the video. “Vamos S5 💪🏼💥.” (“Vamos” translates to “Let’s go” in English.)”
This exact time would be the start of filming for Season 6 if the writers strike wasn’t happening! We will keep everyone updated on when the show will resume filming.
