Nathan Fillion is returning to ABC in a big way.
The Castle veteran is leading the cast of The Rookie, a brand new cop drama will find Fillion's character way out of his depth.
The official logline:
John Nolan is the oldest rookie in the LAPD. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable small-town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop.
Now, surrounded by rookies 20 years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous and unpredictable world of a “young” cop, determined to make his second shot at life count. Inspired by a true story.
The rest of the cast includes Afton Williamson, Eric Winter, Richard T. Jones, Melissa O’Neil, Titus Makin, Alyssa Diaz and Mercedes Mason.
At first glance, you would probably have mistaken John for Richard Castle from, well, Castle.
The show looks to have a similar tone to the former ABC drama, and I don't know whether that's a good thing.
It's almost like the show has been purposefully built for the Castle audience.
ABC announced earlier today it will air in the Tuesday 10/9c death slot, but For The People managed to survive the slot this season, so there's hope.
Have a look at the full teaser below and hit the comments with your thoughts on it.
