ABC’s “The Rookie” was recently renewed for a 6th season and fans are waiting patiently for filming to resume!
There’s currently rumors going around that “The Rookie” Season 6 will consist of less episodes than normal.
“ABC is expected to cut episode orders for most of its hour-long dramas by more than 50 percent, with established hits such as Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, The Rookie and The Good Doctor likely securing 10-episode orders. On the half-hour side, ABC’s two biggest comedy hits — Abbott Elementary and The Conners — could see orders in the 13-episode range. Production on some, if not all, of these titles, may resume as soon as early December. (ABC declined to comment.)”
The strike is now over so we will get more information soon. Are you sad about the possible news? Let us know below!
The procedural follows John Nolan (Nathan Fillion), the oldest rookie in the LAPD, who uses his life experience, determination and sense of humor to keep up with rookies 20 years his junior. Nearing the end of his training, Nolan now faces his biggest challenge as a police officer when he must come to terms with the choices he has made in pursuit of the truth. Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Melissa O’Neil, Eric Winter, and Jenna Dewan join Fillion among the cast.
ABC boasts “The Rookie” as the No. 1 show among Adults 18-49 this season in its new Tuesday night programming block at 8 p.m. After making the transition in January, the series has seen an increase of 40% in Total Viewers and by 17% in the key 18-49 demo over the previous season’s comparable weeks. Additionally, the drama is up almost 6 times over its initial Live+Same Day rating in Adults 18-49 with a lift of 426% after 35 days of multiplatform viewing — meaning the series currently bests its prior season by 6% in Total Viewers and by 9% among Adults 18-49 after delayed multiplatform viewing.
Entertainment One (eOne) produces the series in connection with ABC Signature, and is the lead studio and international distributor of “The Rookie.”
