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.”
