The Rookie Sets 2-Episode December Return; S05E08, S05E09 Overviews

If you're a fan of ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie, then you know that you have a bit longer to wait until the series returns- December 4th, to be exact. But when it does return, it looks like we'll be getting a two-hour, two-episode return. To help celebrate the news, we have the official overviews for S05E08 "The Collar" and S05E09 "Take Back," as well as a promo for "The Collar." And don't forget that beginning Tuesday, January 3, The Rookie (8 pm ET) and The Rookie: Feds (9 pm ET) will be teaming up on the same night moving forward. In addition, the two shows will be joined at 10 pm ET by the Ramón Rodríguez-starring crime drama Will Trent (based on Karin Slaughter's bestselling novels). And to get the new year off on the right note, viewers can expect a crossover between the two shows.
