Rookie Blue Season 4 to Include Time Jump, Tie Up Major Storyline

by at . Comments

The Rookie Blue Season 3 finale left viewers with plenty of questions: How could Andy turn away from Swarek's three beautiful words? Is Chris really leaving? What do we make of Gail and Nick?

For answers to these inquiries and a look ahead to Season 4, TV Line sat down with executive producer Tassie Cameron for an extensive interview, excerpts from which we've posted below. Read on and then give Rookie Blue a grade...

Why did Andy turn down Sam? She doesn’t know he’s going to come back. So she needs to move on. She needs a fresh challenge. She needs to prove herself and distract herself and get on with it... We tried to build it in a way that she had a really good argument for leaving... Then we tried to build that he has an equally passionate and righteous argument about how things went this season.

How will the show handle Andy and Nick in one place and Chris in another? That storyline is tied up in the first episode. You’re going to feel like you’re back on our show again by Episode 2.

Will there be a time jump? Six months. We’re picking up with [Andy] and Nick in their undercover operation at the moment that it intersects with [Precinct] 15.

Will there be resolution to Chris' cliffhanger? Not in the first episode. He’s going to have finally received an answer from the other police department about whether he can go or not. It’ll be a decision he’s trying to make.

Keep Sam around! I hope he doesn't give up on Andy while she's under.....vice versa! Great show! By far my favorite summer show!

It's a good thing that there is going to be a season 4. I just hope that Missy stays because without her the show is nothing.

I love love Rookie Blue and can't wait until next summer. However, I was a little disappointed with the season finale. Having Andy disappear on Sam to go on an undercover mission seemed like a little de'ja'vu from another season finale when Sam did the exact same thing. While it's completely understandable that Andy isn't ready to forgive and forget, the writers could have let Andy stand her ground against Sam without having her slink off in the night with Luke and Nick. Although I was so happy to have Sam finally admit his feelings. And there is no way Chris would make such a drastic decision without talking to his best friend/roommate Dov. That did not make sense at all.
I hope next season will have more episodes with Andy and Sam. It just wasn't the same this year after they broke up and there was very minimal interaction between them. I also would have liked to see more of Sam's emotional struggle with the murder of his friend and his break up with Andy. It is clear he keeps things bottled up but let us see how he's been dealing with it all.

I love Rookie Blue and I pray it never leaves prime time. This is a great TV series, please......please don't discontinue it. I could see Andy and Nick having something more than friendship; however, I did like Andy with Sam.
