The Rookie Season 5 Plot: What To Expect

The Rookie is an ABC original crime drama television series. The cop drama follows John Nolan, a man in his forties who becomes the Los Angeles Police Department’s oldest rookie.

The Rookie stars Nathan Fillion, a middle-aged divorced man from Pennsylvania who is dissatisfied with his construction job and decides to join the Los Angeles Police Department.

Season 5 will be crucial because the previous season left a few questions unanswered following the dramatic death of Jackson West while saving the life of his colleague Angela Lopez.

It’s finally here! The Nathan Fillion cop drama has been renewed, and we can’t wait to share more details with you!
