‘The Rookie’ Season 6 Episode 7 Release Date Confirmed

Nathan Fillion’s police procedural The Rookieepisode 7 of season 6, is confirmed for release on April 30, 2024. The synopsis suggests that the episode will follow the officers in the search for two missing teenagers, as Lopez (Alyssa Diaz) and Harper (Mekia Cox) search for the ideal babysitter.

The episode is called ‘Crushed’ and follows episode 6 ‘Secrets and Lies’, in which viewers saw John and Celina hunt down a vengeful escapee. Meanwhile, Tim and Lucy’s relationship deteriorated and Bailey pushed for a baby, despite it triggering a traumatic reaction related to her past. The season will conclude with ten episodes, with the release date of the finale not yet known.

Nathan Fillion plays the titular role of rookie officer John Nolan, the oldest member of the LAPD, who closes his construction company in Pennsylvania at the age of 45 to join the police force. The show follows Nolan’s adventures as he learns the ropes along the way and balances his professional life with his personal life. Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin Jr., Mercedes Mason, Melissa O’Neil, Afton Williamson, Eric Winter, Mekia Cox, Jenna Dewan and Shawn Ashmore star throughout the six seasons.

The show marks the second collaboration between Fillion and Alexi Hawley, who has collaborated on it Castle (2009-2016) together. Hawley was the co-showrunner and executive producer of Castle, and now calls the shots on the ABC police drama. The show was praised for its depiction of American police, with Fillion singled out for his performance. A spin-off of the show entitled The Rookie: Feds was commissioned and aired for one season, but was canceled in the wake of the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

The show is inspired by the true story of LAPD Officer William “Bill” Norcross, who left his printing business in Pennsylvania to become a cop in Southern California. He serves as the show’s executive producer and also appeared in an episode in uniform (“The Checklist” season 1, episode 19).
