The Rookie cast have become bona fide stars, including Nathan Fillion, Jenna Dewan, Alyssa Diaz and Richard T. Jones, and fans are obsessed with their love lives — on and off camera.

The ABC series follows the story of John Nolan, a recently divorced 40-something, who decides to pursue a career as a police officer at the Los Angeles Police Department after inadvertently helping to stop a bank robbery. The Rookie is based on the true story of William Norcross, a real LAPD officer who joined the department in his mid-40s after moving to Los Angeles in 2015.

The Rookie is now airing its sixth season after premiering in October 2018, and it has featured some incredible guest stars, including Pete Davidson, Frankie Muniz, Kelly Clarkson and Mark Cuban. In April 2024, Deadline confirmed the series was renewed for a seventh season.

The show has no shortage of action and drama. While it sometimes borrows from the actors’ real lives, Dewan revealed that her third pregnancy would not be written into The Rookie after she announced the big news in January 2024.

However, there’s no bad blood between Fillion and his former flames, and when asked what they would say about him during a 2010 interview with Women’s Health, he said, “Oh, boy. I’m still in touch with about 90 percent of my exes. … They would describe me as being unlucky in love.”
