A drama following a middle aged man who pursues his dream of becoming an LAPD officer.

John Nolan is a middle aged man from a small town. After a life-changing incident, he decides to pursue his dream of being an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department.

But as the force's oldest rookie, he faces skepticism from some senior officers who simply see him as a walking midlife crisis. John will need to keep up with not only the criminals, but the younger cops in the precinct.

If he can make use of his own life experiences while remaining determined, he just might become a success in this new chapter of his life.

What's with all the flack about the writing and the quality of the show? The Rookie is based on factual events from when LAPD officer William Norcross left his family's printing business and joined the force at the age 44 (!!!!) - and still serve - both as a police officer and an executive producer on the show. So put a pipe in it:-)

I love this show but getting tired of the on going story it needs to end soon. I am a huge fan of Nathan Fillion but the main story that has been going for quite some time now is getting annoying and needs to stop

I am SO happy they renewed this show since there were rumors season 4 was the last one. It's so great, diverse and current. I'm hooked on all the characters and I'm glad we'll get to see them grown more.

With all the "Blue lives matter/Black lives matter in today's world its GREAT to see a series that is navigating these muddy waters. I've seen things stating that the show may be cancelled. If it is it will be yet another black mark against ABC and commercial tv. I may not watch this live, but I have NEVER missed an episode on HULU. I don't watch anything live anymore. Not even the news. Nathan Fillion will survive with or without the series and I will follow, but ABC and other "commercial" stations will die a painful death and I, myself will watch and cheer it's demise if this show is canceled.

Officer Nolan said he did not want to be a T.O. (training officer), he said he's GOING to be a T.O. It'll be interesting to see how things go once they pass the torch. Another matter: I'm glad Hollywood Division found out about that dirty cop after his own body-cam video
was used to expose him to all present at roll call. Good move!

My wife and I have watched this show since it started. It was one of our favorites. But the wokeness has gotten too much to take. We are tired of getting a sermon every time we watch it. We don’t work all day just to get a woke lecture from a TV show produced by people that live in the bubble of Hollywood. The last episode we watched about the “patriots for purity” and the “southern front” supposed white supremacy groups was the last straw. Instead of using real-life hate groups such as Antifa and BLM, the producers chose to make up two fake white supremacy groups, as if these are the people rioting, looting and burning down America’s cities. This show used to have a good premise about a middle-ages rookie cop but now it’s just a tool to try to re-educate the viewers to see things the way the racist liberals in Hollywood see things. Enough is enough. We’re out.

OMG, without getting a renewal confirmation for next season, they left one truly crappy cliffhanger! Way to trash a good character!
