Are They Ready to “Answer The Call”?



Checking the calendar, it looks like we’re down to only a little more than two weeks until the fifth season return of ABC’s Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie. Previously, we took a look at the newest teaser and overview for S05E01 “Double Down” (both of which are waiting for you below). This time around (and with preview images for the season opener expected any time), we have a look at the official key art poster, a nice ensemble shit with the tagline, “Answer The Call”:

Written by Alexi Hawley and directed by Tori Garrett, the fifth season opener finds Nolan (Fillion) & the squad coming face-to-face again with Annie Wersching‘s Rosalind Dyer for what could be a deadly reunion. Meanwhile, Bradford’s (Eric Winter) and Chen’s (Melissa O’Neil) undercover work is forcing the duo to face the very real feelings they may have for one another. Here’s a look back at the newest teaser, a mix of previously-released scenes with some new clips in-between:

Now here’s a look back at the first trailer for ABC’s The Rookie Season 5, along with the official overview for S05E01 “Double Down,” premiering on September 25th:

The Rookie Season 5 Episode 1 “Double Down: SEASON PREMIERE – Officer John Nolan is once again face-to-face with serial killer Rosalind, and she wants him to know she’s not done with him yet. Meanwhile, officers Bradford and Chen work undercover with Detective Lopez and the Las Vegas Police Department to arrest leaders of a major criminal enterprise. Written by Alexi Hawley and directed by Tori Garrett.

During ABC’s The Rookie Season 5 & spinoff series The Rookie: Feds panel at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), Nash-Bets, Fillion, franchise creator Noah Hawley, and executive producer Terence Paul Winter shared some new intel on what viewers can expect. For example, Tru Valentino‘s Officer Aaron Thorsen has been promoted to series regular for the upcoming fifth season (set to premiere on September 25, with “Feds” premiering on September 27). Okay, congrats to Valentino, and now here’s a look at some highlights.

Fillion’s John Nolan Is Become a “Rookie” Again:

“Early in season 5, John Nolan’s going to become a training officer. He’ll be the oldest rookie training officer.” – Hawley.

“We started off with this guy is the rookie. Now he’s elevated to another level of his job, and he’s starting at rock bottom. I get a brand new rookie who’s making all the same mistakes I was making as a rookie.” – Fillion

So What’s the Deal with “Chenford” aka Lucy (Melissa O’Neill) & Tim (Eric Winter)?

“Obviously, we left quite the cliffhanger at the end of last season with the kiss, which we’ve been building up to for four seasons. There will definitely be repercussions and some fallout from that, but I do think it’s fair to make you wait to see exactly where that goes. There’s definitely going to be some carryover from the end of last season that’s going to be very dynamic.” – Hawley.

“You have one character who is so very tuned in in Lucy. And then in Tim, you have this guy who’s so very walled off and closed off and so tuned out. I tease Eric about this all the time. All he has to do is a little tiny smile, and everybody goes, ‘Oh my god, swoooooon.'” – Fillion

Hawley’s Had “Feds” in Mind for Some Time: “It’s always been in the back of my head. It’s a universal experience, the restarting your life, the second chapter. So it always felt like there was room for that to grow. Once we got a couple of seasons under our belt, we started hatching our evil plan to expand the universe. There’s a lot of different ways we could’ve gone, staying in law enforcement, branching out to a law show, a medical show, but it felt like our first step should stay in that universe. I selfishly wanted to keep us in Los Angeles, so it became about a federal agency that’s in Los Angeles that could be in tandem with the LAPD.”

Nash on Her “Feds” Character Simone Clark: “We all know someone like Simone. I grabbed a little bit from different women in my life. She is that friend in your head or your favorite auntie. I was like, I know this woman; she is a culmination of so many women, so let me just bake a little bit in from the women I love and like to be around.”

“Feds” Will Expand “The Rookie” Universe’s Sandbox: “Because we’re a federal organization, Los Angeles is not the only place where we do her work. We have a jet plane, and we often fly. We go to Texas, Mississippi, Florida. It opens up the show in an exciting way. We’re going to be all over Los Angeles, all over the nation, and we might even go overseas.”

And Much Like “Law & Order,” Viewers Can Expect Crossovers: “We’re going to try to be lousy with crossover events,” Winter revealed. Hawley added, “We pick up pretty much right where we left off because we had some pressing matters that were going on. We were designing the show with crossovers between the new show and ‘The Rookie’ proper. They do live in the same universe, and so, we really want you to feel like you can balance between the shows, but at the same time not feel like, ‘Oh, I missed this one, so I can’t watch that one.’ They all stand on their own, but they’re also super fun to watch together.”
