ABC, jointly with Canadian network Global, have announced that Rookie Blue has been renewed for a third season on both networks. The early pickup comes just four episodes into the show's second season.

Produced and set in Toronto, Canada, Rookie Blue follows five rookie cops navigating the ups and downs of their first year on the force. So far this summer the show has ranked Number 1 in its 10:00pm Thursday time slot among adults 18-49, a key demographic.
