Nathan Fillion Confirmed as New Character to Play The Rookie Season 5

Created by Alexi Hawley for ABC, the series stars the ever-charming and likable Fillion of Firefly fame.

The premise is inspired by real-life LAPD officer William Norcross, who moved to Los Angeles in 2015 and became a police officer in his mid-forties.

The Rookie was renewed for a season 5, which is expected to premiere in September of 2022

Fillion spoke about his character becomes a training officer who is charged with training a new rookie

The newcomer's casting hasn't been revealed yet, but Fillion let it slip that it's a woman.

Fillion's Nolan is trained by a woman. However, this is more than fans have previously known, and it sets up an interesting dynamic for the upcoming season

An older, male officer and a young woman working together could set up lots of conflict and misunderstandings that will drive the show moving forward

Regardless, it would certainly be interesting to see Nolan in a teaching role

A female newcomer joining the cast will add something new and different, hopefully reviving the series to last for more seasons.
