      Season 3 – The Rookie

      2021 Crime Drama TRAILER for The Rookie: Season 3 First Look List
      Reviews 34% 250+ Ratings Audience Score Starting over isn't easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan, who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of becoming an LAPD officer. As the force's oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can't keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he'll be risking lives -- including his own -- but if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become successful in this new chapter of his life.

      Christine Orlando TV Fanatic There are plenty of police dramas that concentrate on detectives, and I love those shows, but following cops on the streets of LA is what makes The Rookie special. Rated: 4.5/5 Jan 14, 2021 Full Review

      Katelyn W I read a lot of bad reviews about this season but I personally loved it. We got to see 2 of the main characters develop into p2s and I didn't mind them talking about the system being corrupted. I liked how they used Jackson to convey this idea even though it did annoy me sometimes I really liked the way they developed Jackson's character if you take out the part where they killed him. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/24 Full Review Steven V Enjoyed the first 2 seasons a lot, but they changed their writing for the 3rd season. They went from writing a good story to fill in justice worrier. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Andrew G Seasons 1 and 2 were fantastic, with great writing. This season is unbearable. How did anyone think this would be watchable? I'm surprised the show recovered from Season 3. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Telecom Reporter G S3 continues to keep us glued to the TV, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Each year seems to surpass the previous, making the show better with each season. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Ingvar Andri S Enjoyed season 1 and 2 but this is just terrible the writing went off a cliff, its just hammering "the message" with all the subtlety of a blunderbuss, i kept trying to watch thru it but it was just terrible ive seen better written character conflicts in a 12year olds fan fiction stories, Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Stephan G Season 1 and 2 ... great! But then this series did, what all the shows do these days: They start to pander. Not in an intelligent or fun way. But in your face and nonsensical. It drained all the fun and excitement out of the show. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
