Comments Off on THE ROOKIE: Ali Larter is Open to a Season 3 Return

The Rookie Ali Larter

THE ROOKIE – “The Overnight” – Officers Chen and Bradford respond to a call at the Los Angeles auditions of “American Idol,” and Officer Chen ends up facing Ryan Seacrest and the judges (Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie). Meanwhile, Chen befriends reporter (Roselyn Sanchez) whose motives are not clear on an all-new episode of “The Rookie,” airing SUNDAY, APRIL 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Raymond Liu)

When THE ROOKIE ended its sophomore season, Nolan (Nathan Fillion) was hit with a double whammy: he was set up so it looked like he was a dirty cop, and his rekindled relationship with Grace (Ali Larter) came to an end when she decided to give her marriage another chance for the sake of her kid.

“Nolan and Grace, she closed the door on him,” THE ROOKIE showrunner Alexi Hawley said after the finale aired. “Does he give up on that? And if she decides that she wants to change [her mind]—which I’m not saying she will, but just as an idea—can they come back from this? Or is it over? I don’t know the answer to that, honestly, right now, but there’s a lot of potential there.”

With production still primarily shut down—and Los Angeles at risk for shutting down entirely—Larter admits whether she returns to THE ROOKIE for its third season is “deeply up in the air.”

“Save the cheerleader, save the world.”

In 2006, it was nearly impossible to be a fan of television and not know HEROES. The sci-fi drama about ordinary people discovering they had extraordinary abilities was arguably the biggest show of the year, as fans obsessed over whether the rag-tag group of new heroes could defeat supervillain Sylar (Zachary Quinto).

Now, new—and old—fans can experience it again, as the four seasons of the original series are streaming on Peacock. (2015 revival HEROES REBORN isn’t currently included.)

“It was one of the best pilots I’ve ever read,” Ali Larter, who portrayed Niki, Jessica, and Tracy, recalls. “Tim Kring wrote it, and when we came together, David Semel, who was our director, had an extraordinary vision for that show. When I think about all all the pieces it takes to really come together and make something that is so special, and connect with an audience the way that it did, I just feel really proud and grateful.”

Here, Larter looks back at her time on the show, and reflects on why it may be the best binge watch for 2020… Read more
