Missy Peregrym to TV Fanatic: Complications to Come on Rookie Blue

by at . Comments

Complicated makes for great TV.

So said Missy Peregrym to me this week, previewing what's ahead on season two of Rookie Blue.

The actress, who anchors this ABC summer hit, was referring to the relationship between her character of Andy and the officer with whom all fans want her to end up: Ben Bass' Sam Swarek.

But Bass said last week the audience "doesn't get what they're expecting" when it comes to these characters, and Peregrym teased a similar twist in our interview yesterday.

"There's definitely opportunity," the actress said of Andy and Sam getting together. "Unlike last season, they won't lose their jobs if they decide to date now... but she started the season by moving in with Luke, she's happy, she's hopeful. But things will get complicated and muddled."

A lot of that will have to do with Camille Sullivan's Jo Rosatti, who made her first appearance on last week's premiere. The arrival of Luke's ex "gives Sam hope" that there's a future with Andy, Peregrym said.

As for the series itself, the future may have been unclear a year ago, as networks don't typically air original, unscripted shows in the summer. But Rookie Blue overcame comparisons to Grey's Anatomy and now stands on its own.

"It was a compliment at the time, as that's a great show that has done very well," Peregrym said. "But it's nice to not need [the comparison] anymore. I think fans like us for what we bring ourselves now: a character-based cop show that uses policing as a backdrop. Our personal lives come first."

Peregrym says viewers will go deeper into those lives this season and, she hopes, on many seasons to come. First, though, remember: life is about to get a lot more complicated for Andy McNally.

Rookie Blue airs a new episode tonight on ABC. Return to TV Fanatic after it airs for a full review.

Aries93: well you called the engagement! but not sure how it ends... hope that Sam and Andy can get some kinda action going!!
Yes Luke is a good guy but he is NOT the RIGHT guy for Andy! I actually kinda like Luke and Jo interactions together. Luke seems more involved in their conversations than the ones with Andy. And lets face it that Sam and Andy have more sexual chemistry than Luke and Andy ever will!
TEAM SANDY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!

I love this show!! It is so well done and the characters are so interesting. Of course, Andy belongs with Sam... it is inevitable, but Luke seems like a great guy also. I love all of the characters and always look forward to the next episodes!!

ive noticed that whenever andy has an issue with the job, like during last season when she shot and killed the man who was kidnapping girls in the episode when the power goes out, luke always says something like "u had to" and other stuff based on "its all about the job". sam always comes to her aid because of how shes actually feeling and makes sure shes okay emotionally. the job takes a toll on someones emotional well being and luke doesnt seem like he is there for her emotionally. im rooting for sam n andy !!!
