The Rookie Season 5: Did The Rookie Get Cancelled? Check Latest Updates!

The ABC show Rookie has followed in the footsteps of its protagonist John Nolan (Nathan Fillion). It’s never been a blockbuster hit, but it’s still popular, and the network recognised that success by renewing the show for Season 5 on March 30, 2022.

While Nolan is no longer a rookie (far from it! ), his on-the-job antics have earned the show a loyal fanbase. Viewers have also seen his coworkers grow both personally and professionally.

The addition of a fifth season is noteworthy since it implies that the show is approaching 100 episodes. Not only is this an incredible achievement for any television show, but it also meets the minimum syndication requirement of 100 episodes (which allows a studio to sell reruns to other channels and get it even more attention, like those Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episodes that are on every day).

Syndication boosts a studio’s earnings, which incentivizes them to continue producing new seasons. Season 5 of The Rookie approaches that magical number, as Season 4 comes to a close with 78 episodes. As a result, the show’s fifth season should be massive, both on and off the screen. This is everything we currently know about it.

Will The Rookie have a fifth season?

In March 2022, the series was revived for a fifth season. On March 31, Fillion congratulated the series on its renewal, writing on Instagram, “Congratulations on season 5!” and adding, “I couldn’t be more pleased of what we have accomplished with this show.” Thank you to our actors, crew, writers, producers, casting directors, directors, and everyone else who has contributed to #therookieabc over the years.

“This profession provides me real joy,” the actor added, “and I look forward to many more episodes with you all.” I’d also like to express my gratitude to the fans who continue to support me. We’ll keep making them as long as you keep viewing them. #season5 #therookieabc #holycrap And kudos to ABC for picking it up early! It’s a wonderful sensation!”


Not only that, but it was rumoured in February of this year that The Rookie might get a new spin-off series focusing on a new character played by Niecy Nash. “I’m so delighted to guest star on The Rookie and bring Simone Clark to life!” Nash said in a statement about the spin-off, which is expected to premiere next year if picked up.

“She is a vibrant and peppery fish out of water,” she continued. I’m really excited to play with this cast!”

Release Date for Season 5 of The Rookie

Unfortunately, no release date for The Rookie Season 5 has been set, and requesting one now would be premature given that Season 4 is currently airing. Season 4 debuted in September 2021, and the new season is expected to launch in late 2022 or early 2023, based on past seasons.

Season 5 Cast of The Rookie

The programme will welcome back Nathan Fillion, Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin Jr., Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neil, Afton Williamson, Eric Winter, Mekia Cox, Shawn Ashmore, and Jenna Dewan.

The show was conceived and executive produced by Alexi Hawley, Nathan Fillion, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper, Michelle Chapman, Jon Steinberg, Liz Friedlander, and William Norcross.

What will the fifth season of The Rookie be about?

The previous season had a fantastic cliffhanger. At the USS Iowa Museum, we watched cops approaching Reynolds and shooting him. Brandon resolves to follow in her sister’s footsteps, but she subsequently declines to meet with her father and endorses Nolan for the position of union representative. Lopez files a RICO suit against Stone, but subsequently learns that Evers told Grey about the complaint and that Grey wants to use Evers as an informant.

The next season will start up where the previous one left off, and we’re excited to see how our police officer handles the new challenges that come with being promoted to the rank of P2, which allows him to serve as a patrol officer on his own.
