ABC’s popular series “The Rookie” recently launched its 5th season on September 25, 2022, and even though it only aired a few episodes, fans of this show are worried if the program is ceasing after this season following the rumors circulating on the internet. Nonetheless, no official announcement from the showrunners has been heard regarding this issue and it’s plausible that the rumors are not valid.
The series is created by Alexi Hawley for ABC. The story revolves around a man called John Nolan in his mid-forties who comes to be the most senior rookie at the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department). The series is being produced by ABC Signature and Entertainment One. The series is adapted from true life events of an LAPD officer named William Norcross, who decides to move to Los Angeles in 2015 and joins the police regiment in his forties. “The Rookie” stars Nathan Fillion, Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin Jr., Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neill, Afton Williamson, Eric Winter, Mekia Cox, Shawn Ashmore, Jenna Dewan, and Tru Valentino.
To those fans marveling about whether the series will be back with the sixth series or not. Here’s what we know about it.
Will There Be a Season 6 of The Rookie?
As of this writing, “ABC has yet to renew the sixth installment of “The Rookie.” Season five is ongoing and fans need to be patient for showmakers to make further announcements concerning the renewal status of the potential upcoming season. However, we’re optimistic that the network will bestow the green signal sometime in the future.
