The Rookie Season 4 Gets ABC Green Light; Season 3 Finale Preview

Friday brought a storm of series renewals, pick-ups, and cancellations, but viewers of ABC and Alexi Hawley's The Rookie got the news they were waiting for. With Season 3 finale "Threshold" set for this Sunday, the Nathan Fillion-starring series was officially picked up a fourth season. Considering the numbers that the series pulls for the network, it's no surprise. During its third season, The Rookie averages nearly 10 million total viewers (9.8 million) after 35 days of delayed viewing on linear and digital platforms (that's up from 6.14 million viewers over its initial Live+Same Day average). Digging deeper into the numbers, the series also more than quadruples (+342%) its Live+SD Adults 18-49 rating after 35 days of multiplatform viewing (putting it at a 2.12 rating). So what better way to celebrate than with a look at what's to come as the season reaches its end with "Threshold"- written by Hawley and directed by Lisa Demaine.
