This article is a preview for The Rookie season 5, episode 2 and contains details about the release date/time, cast, episodes, and where to watch online.


How long does the term “rookie” apply? After four prior seasons, you’d think there would be another word to describe John Nolan’s career in the Los Angeles Police Department. Nevertheless, ABC’s hit procedural, fronted by Nathan Fillion, will return unchanged for its fifth season this fall.

Here’s the official synopsis courtesy of Wikipedia:

The series follows John Nolan, a forty-five-year-old newly divorced man from Pennsylvania, who, after inadvertently helping police officers during a bank robbery, moves to Los Angeles to pursue a new career as a police officer in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

Developments in the previous season mean we have lots more crime, romance, and drama to look forward to as Nolan continues his career. Here’s everything we know about the latest episode.
