The Rookie Season 5: Eric Winter Teases "New Look" for Next Episode

With S05E18 "Double Trouble" hitting next week, ABC's The Rookie star Eric Winter teased his "new look" for the next episode.

So the last time we checked in on how things were going with ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie ahead of its return next week with S05E18 "Double Trouble" (huge apologies for the screw-up in our last update), series star Eric Winter (Tim Bradford) was giving fans the heads-up that filming on the fifth season has wrapped. This time around, Winter isn't jumping that far into the future; instead, he's posting a sneak preview of his "new look" for when the series returns. And yes, it involves neck ink (or tats, or tattoos).
