The cop drama ups its episode count.
October 28, 2019
ABC has topped up The Rookie's second season, adding an additional seven episodes to its original order of 13. That gives the cop drama a total of 20 episodes for the 2019-2020 season, matching the length of its freshman run.
The series was a high profile entry when it premiered in 2018, garnering consistent ratings while establishing a loyal fan base. Its numbers have been steady once again through its first five weeks back in its new Sunday night time slot.
In The Rookie, Nathan Fillion plays John Nolan, a middle aged man who experiences a life-changing incident that inspires him to pursue his dream of being an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. But as the force's oldest rookie, he must deal with skepticism from senior officers and the demands of keeping up with not only the criminals, but the younger cops in the precinct.

FACTS ONLY: "Throughout the filming of the pilot, I experienced Racial Discrimination/Racially Charged inappropriate comments from the hair department and bullying from Executive Producers." That first part (omitted from Bonkers' comment) is critical because it's the only time she mentions bullying from Executive Producers, implying it only occurred during the pilot. The EPs FOR THE PILOT include (drumroll, please): Michelle Chapman, Nathan Fillion, Liz Friedlander, Mark Gordon, Alexi Hawley, Bill Norcross, Nicholas Pepper, and Jon Steinberg. That's a lot of people and she never says who she's referring to. The only other time she mentions an EP is when she says, "The Sexual Harassment though reported directly to the Showrunner/EP remained undocumented..." The slash means it's referring to the same person (i.e. the Showrunner), which is Alexi Hawley. Everything else she said was referring to people outside the EP group listed above. Sorry, but there's no smoking gun here which points to Nathan Fillion; anything else is pure conjecture.

Bonkers, she did not say Executive Producers. It was a hairdresser. A female hairdresser. Stop with the slander and fact-check before making a fool of yourself.

Why was this show getting a full season ever in question? I think this show is great and almost everyone I know watches it and loves how well put together it is.

Aethn, i dont know which google youre using, but her exact quote was - "I experienced Racial Discrimination/Racially Charged inappropriate comments from the hair department and BULLYING FROM THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS" Plural... so lets take a look at all the Executive Producers from The Rookie - theres Mark Gordon... and Nathan Fillion. Stana Katic wanted out of Castle because of difficulty with Fillion... Corinna Wiles wanted out of Drive because of difficulty with a "Co-Worker"... in fact the only actress who hasnt said she did, or didnt, enjoy working opposite of him is Morena Baccarin. Im sorry, i loved all of his shows, but i cannot shake the feeling hes either REALLY cursed, or hes part of the problem...

Williamson left because she was being sexually harassed on set by the African American guy playing the Drug/Vice detective from last season. It have nothing to do with Fillion. You can google it and 100+ articled about it

Its a pleasant weekly diversion - nothing special, but also not boring and well thought out... but i am not a fan of Fillion so i will be biased... after the departure of Williamson from the show, im now confident he is not as sweet to work with as hes portrayed by the Firefly fans. Drive, Castle, and now Rookie... his female co-stars seem to consistently want out...

A very good show. No outlandish scenarios like that ridiculous trash show "9-11". Each episode is something that could actually happen in the day to day shift of an LA Patrol Officer. The technical advisor on this show makes sure the proper techniques, gun handling, tactical entries, etc etc are as accurate as possible and that makes the show very believable. They also tackle some good topics of the day [Opioids, Sex Trafficking, Felony Traffic stops, etc] and approach them with an objective view as an officer should do. I hope this show stays like this and last for many seasons.
