The Rookie: new Nathan Fillion TV series on the way

Joseph Baxter Oct 30, 2017

Nathan Fillion will soon be back at the former home of Castle, ABC, to star in a new dramedy series called The Rookie...

Nathan Fillion’s starring role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Fox’s ahead-of-its-time space/sci-fi/western series Firefly will likely be forever considered the elephant in the room that is his career. Yet, his 2009-2016 run – opposite Stana Katic – as the title star of ABC crime procedural Castle was, in actuality, the most prominent gig of his career. Now, a year and a half after that series came to a (controversially sloppy) close, Fillion has finalised a deal to return to ABC with a series called The Rookie.

ABC has emerged the winner in a competitive situation to acquire The Rookie, reports Deadline. With the network giving a straight-to-series order, Nathan Fillion will not only serve as star, but has also nabbed an executive producer slot.

The Rookie: ABC Gives Nathan Fillion Show Full Season Order

Joseph Baxter Nov 5, 2018

Nathan Fillion is back at his former Castle network home, ABC, this time in a police uniform, on The Rookie.

The Rookie is the newest vehicle for Nathan Fillion, who, of course, is best known for his starring role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Fox’s ignominiously axed, ahead-of-its-time 2002-2003 space/sci-fi/western series, Firefly, and a 2009-2016 run – opposite Stana Katic – as the title star of ABC crime procedural Castle. Now, two years after that series came to a (controversially sloppy) close, Fillion returns to ABC on this freshman cop series that mixes hard crime drama with some occasional Fillion levity.

In the latest news, ABC has just made a full season order for The Rookie, adding seven more episodes to its previous thirteen, bringing the currently-running Season 1 to a new total of 20 episodes.

The series debuted on ABC on October 16 as a Tuesday night primetime offering,
