What is "The Rookie" about?
Per ABC: "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."
What can we expect from "The Rookie" Season 3?
In season three, Nolan will near the end of his training and face some of the complex challenges as a police officer. In a panel with ABC7’s Mark Brown, creator Alexi Hawley, said the show would incorporate conversations about police brutality sparked by Black Lives Matter.

To talk about so many different aspects of policing – from stuff that happens on the streets to the stuff that happens on the stations, warts and all of the LAPD and policing in general, how hard it is to fire a bad cop, to make change in the system.” According to Deadline, in order to create an informative and entertaining season, "The Rookie" team brought Arisha Hatch of Color of Change on board. Color of Change is a racial justice organization, committed to advocating for justice for Black people.
