The Rookie Season 3 Preview: Nolan's Action Have Serious Consequences

With Alexi Hawley and ABC's The Rookie set to hit the streets for its third season this Sunday night, it does so with some major changes happening on both sides of the camera. In the wake of the protests stemming from the 2020 protests over the killing of George Floyd, Hawley has promised that the series will reflect a more realistic image of law enforcement from a number of perspectives. In front of the camera, the series welcomes Brandon Routh's (DC's Legends of Tomorrow) Doug Stanton to the series for an extended four-episode arc as an eleven-year veteran of the LAPD whose views prove to be polarizing at the Mid-Wilshire station. But before we get to the second episode, there's the small matter of season-opener "Consequences" to get through with Nolan (Nathan Fillion) finding himself in one of the worst positions possible- and as you're about to see from the following preview images and promos, it doesn't appear to be getting better any time soon.
