Nathan Fillion returns to ABC next fall with The Rookie. An official teaser has been released for the upcoming drama series so check it out below!
As a huge fan of Castle this looks right up my alley. Fillion is severely underrated as an actor I find and he deserves a much larger career. *cough DCEU Green Lantern cough* If anything, James Gunn needs to make sure to bring Fillion back as Simon Williams for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after his scenes in Vol. 2 were deleted.
The Rookie definitely looks interesting, and my only hope is that they allow Fillion to crack a joke here and there. My favorite part of the earlier seasons of Castle was when Fillion was playing Rick Castle as a charming, joking playboy. Let’s hope the charming and joking part is subtly incorporated into his new character John Nolan.
Synopsis: “Starting over isn’t easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being an LAPD officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.”
We will find out when The Rookie airs next fall when ABC announces their 2018-19 schedule next week.
