Many TV show schedules are thrown out of sync. What about The Rookie? Is a new episode of Season 2 on ABC tonight, March 29?
There’s a lot changing right now with TV shows shutting down production. Shows are wrapping seasons early, which has changed a few schedules here and there. What does it mean for The Rookie? Is there a new episode on tonight, Mar. 29?
While there is an episode, it isn’t going to be a new episode. The next new episode isn’t going to be until the first Sunday of April.
Tonight we’re getting a rerun of arguably the strongest episode of the series so far. It’s the winter premiere, titled “Day of Death.” Picking up shortly after the winter finale, we see the team look for Lucy Chen, knowing that it’s not like her not to turn up for work.
Nolan and Bradford take things the hardest, doing everything they can to find the man who took Lucy and then find Lucy herself. It’s a race against time as she’s buried alive in the middle of nowhere.
The next new episode of The Rookie will air on Apr. 5 and is titled “The Overnight.” Chen and Bradford end up at the American Idol auditions in LA. The show’s judges and Ryan Seacrest guest star in the episode, while Chen befriends a reporter who seems to have ulterior motives.
It’s not entirely clear just how many episodes of the series are left. Production on the series shut down with many others due to the coronavirus. The season has now wrapped with the last episode filmed becoming the season finale.
We’re also still waiting on words as to whether the show will be renewed for a third season. The move to Sundays has proven to be successful, so a renewal is likely.
