The Rookie Star Eric Winter Signals Season 5 Filming Wrap

With the series returning on March 21st, ABC's The Rookie star Eric Winter signaled via Instagram that Season 5 has wrapped filming.

Look, if you're going to be heading off on a two-week break, crossing over with the Niecy Nash-Betts-starring The Rookie: Feds right before you do is not a bad note to exit one. But in a little less than two weeks, ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie will be back for S05E18 "The Enemy Within" (directed by Lanre Olabisi and written by Vincent Angell). While we have a promo for the next new episode waiting for you below, today's update is a bit more "bigger picture." That's because Eric Winter (Tim Bradford) was kind enough to take to social media to signal the words that fans were waiting to hear: that's a wrap!
