Fans have loved John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) for four seasons because he was brave enough to change careers and try something new even though he would be the oldest rookie in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). Fans of The Rookie are looking forward to what will happen next now that season 5 is out and Nolan’s early days on the force are over.
Here’s what we know about season 5 of The Rookie.
When is the Next Season 5 Episode of the Rookie?
A brand-new episode of The Rookie is out.
The episode “Crossfire” will air on ABC on Sunday, November 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The next day, the episode will be available to stream on Hulu.
Here’s a summary of what’s coming:
“Officer John Nolan and Celina see a shooting, find out that the victim was already dead, and keep looking into what happened. Since Nolan asked her to marry him, Bailey has been feeling off-balance at home. This makes Nolan wonder what he can do to make her feel better. A local shopkeeper was killed by a gang, and Lopez and Harper want Lucy’s help to find out what happened.”
Season 5 Storyline of Rookie
New episodes have some interesting territory to cover based only on the conclusion. Let’s discuss love. Bradford (Eric Winter) and Chen (Melissa O’Neil) sealed a possible future romance with a real kiss at the close of season 4, leaving fans ecstatic about a long-awaited moment.
However, even a casual TV viewer is aware that hashtags containing “Chadford” or “Bren” should be used with caution because companion romances on crime dramas are rarely successful. While it is possible that the creators of The Rookie may give these two a simple and lasting love, we will opt to be wary for now.
Then, naturally, Officer Nolan’s police career continues to advance throughout season 5. Don’t forget that this is a crime procedural, thus there will be interesting new case-based plotlines.
The Rookie Cast for Season 5
Nathan Fillion plays the part of John Nolan again. Fillion has been in a number of movies. In Resident Alien, he played the role of 42/Octopus. In The Suicide Squad, he played the role of T.D.K., and in Con Man, he played the role of Jack Moore.
Mekia Cox (Chicago Med, Once Upon a Time), Alyssa Diaz (Ray Donovan, NCIS: Los Angeles), Richard T. Jones (Santa Clarita Diet, Narcos), Melissa O’Neil (Condor, iZombie), and Eric Winter all return as important parts of the main cast of The Rookie (The Good Doctor, Rosewood).
Let’s also mention that there could be some crossovers between shows. If you haven’t heard, The Rookie: Feds is now on ABC. Claws star Niecy Nash-Betts is in charge of the show. Based on the ads that have been out, we think it’s a safe bet that she (and maybe some of her new castmates) will be on The Rookie. Watch the short video clip below.
The Season 5 Trailer for Rookie
Check out the trailer for Season 5. From what I can tell, the next episodes will be a lot of fun to watch.
How to Watch Season 5 of the Rookie?
The Rookie is a show made by ABC, so episodes are shown live on the broadcast network. ABC can be streamed on live TV streaming services like Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, and YouTube TV. These services are for people who no longer have cable or satellite TV.
New episodes are added to Hulu the day after they air live, which is good news for people who like to watch shows when they want to. You’ll need a Hulu subscription to watch episodes on the platform, which you can get with just a few clicks of the mouse.
We don’t know when season 5 will be available in the UK yet, but we expect it will be on Sky TV with seasons 1-4.
