The Rookie is about a 40-year-old man who moves from his small-town life to Los Angeles to follow his dream of joining the LAPD. Everyone there only sees him as the oldest rookie and a walking midlife crisis.
The Rookie Season 1 aired in October 2018 and was followed by a season 2 in September 2019. If you are a fan of police drama this is a must-watch for you. The Rookie was loved greatly by viewers. The story of the series is based on a real-life man.
The official announcement of the series has been done, but the official date has not been confirmed yet. It is being assumed that season 3 will premiere somewhere in 2021.
The Rookie Season 3: Reason For The Delay
When ABC announced their premiere dates, there were no signs of rookie season 3, because the series is not on his schedule. A major reason for the delay is also the ongoing pandemic, previously it was assumed that we will get to see season 3 before this year comes to an end, but due to the unexpected and so long stretched pandemic, the film industry has stopped fully so it is not easy to start with shooting or even gathering the crew and cast together.
The show should be a depiction of the real world, so this can be another reason for its delay as the important subject from a few days is police brutality and inter-departmental reform.
The delay is quite disappointing but maybe it’s for the best, a show should come on its own terms with a safe production.
The Rookie Season 3: Plot
There are no updates on this too but according to resources we can get to see some new characters and the storyline will continue from where it left off.
