'Rookie Blue' Gets Cancelled

10/17/2015 2:30pm EDT
'Rookie Blue' Gets Cancelled After Six Seasons
Rookie Blue has been cancelled and will not return for a seventh season, as announced by the cop drama's Canadian production company Shaw Media on Friday and reported by TVLine.

The show's future had been in doubt for several months given its age and the decision to split what had been a full-length season five into two cycles, as well as the previous reveal that co-creator and showrunner Tassie Cameron would be departing for other projects after season six.

The season six finale, "74 Epiphanies," even felt like a series ender with longtime couple Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) and Sam Swa...

'Rookie Blue' Season Finale Recap: Sam And Andy Finally Get Married

9/4/2015 10:05am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Season Finale Recap And Review: '74 Epiphanies'
The big news about the Rookie Blue season finale is that Sam Swarek and Andy McNally, after being off and on and off again and on again, are finally getting married. But there's more to say about "74 Epiphanies" too, including that threat of restructuring the office and whether or not this is the last episode of this show. If it is, at least it ended with a happy day for somebody.

Cases at 15 Division don't stop just because there's a wedding going on, though. Inspector Jarvis is riding hard on Traci because a murder victim is related to a prominent defense attorney who's sitting at Jarvis...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: 'Breaking Up The Band'

8/28/2015 9:57am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Breaking Up The Band' - Say Goo
Since everything we'd been waiting for happened during last week's Rookie Blue, this week's episode is centered around dealing with the aftermath. Whether it's office politics or relationship ones, "Breaking Up The Band" tosses in drama like some people toss a salad.

In case you forgot, Marlo had her baby last week, so this week Sam is on father duty. This once again makes Andy snippy, and she leaves him with the kid to go drinking at the Penny, where Juliet finds her. "We had plans, Sam and I," Andy tells Juliet, wondering aloud how she's supposed to marry her fiancee "in the middle of al...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: The Baby Makes Four

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Ninety Degrees' - The Baby Make
This week's Rookie Blue will forever be known as "the one where Andy delivered Marlo and Sam's baby." But other than that, "Ninety Degrees" can also be referred to as the one where Oliver gets his job back, and the one with a bunch of subplots in between. Mostly, though, this is about Marlo, Sam, Andy, the baby and what it means for the series should it continue to another season.

We're still trying to process the fact that Steve is a dirty cop, including Traci, who wants nothing to do with her now ex-boyfriend. Apparently it's been a while since the previous episode because Gail makes a r...

'Rookie Blue' Sneak Peek: Marlo Goes Into Labor

8/19/2015 12:00pm EDT
Marlo's Baby Arrives In Tomorrow's 'Rookie Blue' - Watch A Sneak
The moment everyone's been worrying about is finally here on tomorrow night's Rookie Blue. In "Ninety Degrees," as a heat wave hits the city, Marlo (Rachael Ancheril) goes into labor with Sam's (Ben Bass) baby - and only Sam's fiancee Andy (Missy Peregrym) can help her! Check out a clip from the memorable moment below.

Meanwhile, the rest of 15 Division struggles to move on from the corruption scandal that unseated Commissioner Santana and revealed his accomplice within their own ranks. With Commissioner Jarvis (Oliver Becker) opening the building up to the public for use as a cooling st...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: 'Best Man'

8/7/2015 9:06am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Best Man' - Who's The Corrupt C
Rookie Blue continues to dig a deeper hole for 15 Division with "Best Man," in which the team tries to save Oliver from the web of corruption and someone else gets caught in it. This episode is co-written by Traci Nash herself, Enuka Okuma, and that makes it all the more almost painful to watch because of how it ends. And how you can't help but wonder what's going to be left off the team after this.

Hey, Noelle's back! Never mind that she's bringing bad news, telling Sam that Juliet is Internal Affairs and Oliver is the leading suspect in the corruption investigation. It's up to the newly ...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: 'A Real Gentleman'

7/24/2015 9:48am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'A Real Gentleman' - And Another
Traci Nash is once again getting kicked in this week's episode of Rookie Blue. After someone broke into her apartment in the season premiere, "A Real Gentleman" sees the culprit that got away come back for more. The episode is full of potential but winds up feeling like the plot was stretched a little too thin - or maybe didn't go far enough to be as great as it could've.

The cops of 15 Division are all coming together for an important raid that Traci is leading against a major gun dealer, but her big day comes to a screeching halt when she gets a mysterious message that she believes is fr...

'Rookie Blue' Puts Focus On Nick Collins

7/17/2015 9:05am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Letting Go' - Past Imperfect
This week's Rookie Blue is all about pulling skeletons out of the closet. "Letting Go" puts the focus on Nick Collins, who finally gets more to do than just chase after the new addition, and he's more than able to carry the weight of an entire episode. Plus, fans can play "spot the familiar face" amongst the guest cast. It all adds up to one of the better episodes so far in season six.

Everything seems to be fine for Nick, who's continuing to chase after Juliet (plus one awkward moment with Andy). But then he takes a phone call from his brother Finn (Peter Stebbings, who directed this seas...

Peter Mooney Of 'Rookie Blue' Gives Us His Take On His Character's Roller Coaster Ride

7/16/2015 12:04pm EDT
'Rookie Blue': Peter Mooney Previews Our Look Into Nick's Past
Season six of Rookie Blue has so far been mostly fun and flirty for Officer Nick Collins, but tonight that's all about to change. In "Letting Go," Nick's past collides with his present and Juliet is caught in the middle. Peter Mooney spoke with Starpulse on Wednesday to give us his take on his character's roller coaster ride and what he loves about being part of 15 Division.

"The backstory was something when I very first met with Tassie Cameron and David Wellington and Ilana Frank about the show, before I even started, it was something we talked about then," Peter explained. "The big revea...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: 'Perfect Family'

7/3/2015 9:02am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Perfect Family' - Perfect Imper
After Rookie Blue came back last week, there was plenty of personal drama to go around at 15 Division. Andy found out about Marlo, Diaz discovered who he was really fooling around with, and Chloe still couldn't get over Dov. In "Perfect Family," everyone's still pretty imperfect, but some crazy happenings make them realize that they need to get a grip on themselves.

As the episode begins, Andy and Marlo have their first conversation since the news broke, with Marlo promising that she won't come between Andy and Sam, who's trying to get back on Andy's good side. Andy doesn't think she has a...

'Rookie Blue' Season Six Premiere

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Open Windows' - Not Back To Nor
Rookie Blue is back, and so is Andy McNally. The problem is, it's only been three weeks since the bombing at the end of season five - and new trouble germinates for Andy and Sam Swarek right off the bat, in the form of Sam's ex-girlfriend Marlo Cruz finally telling him what the audience already knows.

As if that's not bad enough, Andy gets an unpleasant surprise of her own when she agrees to head over to Traci Nash's apartment. Yep, these two just cannot catch a break in any way, shape or form. "Open Windows" might as well be re-titled "Open Wounds."

While Andy and Sam are wrapping up the...

Missy Peregrym Previews 'Rookie Blue'

'Rookie Blue': Missy Peregrym Previews Andy, Sam And That Bombsh
Rookie Blue fans know that Andy McNally and Sam Swarek have a lot to talk about when season six begins tonight on ABC, picking up three weeks after the events of the season four finale.

So to find out what's ahead for the fan-favorite couple, we went straight to the source: Missy Peregrym, who told us if Sam's news will threaten the renewed McSwarek relationship and how Andy's holding up after a fifth season that saw her struggle as a training officer and caught in an explosion. SPOILER ALERT!

Missy told us she was "shocked" when she learned that Sam's ex-girlfriend Marlo Cruz (a returnin...

Andy's In Trouble In Clip From Tomorrow's 'Rookie Blue' Premiere
Season six of Rookie Blue doesn't start well for Andy McNally. In tomorrow night's season premiere, "Open Windows," Andy's taken three weeks off after the evidence room bomb that could've killed her, and is ready to get back to work.

But when she heads over to Traci's apartment, Andy gets another unpleasant surprise, as you can discover in the preview clip we've included for you here. (Hint: it has nothing to do with the reveal at the end of last season.)

Rookie Blue premieres tomorrow at 10 PM ET/PT on ABC. Check back tomorrow morning for our interview with Missy Peregrym about what el...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Everlasting' - A Bomb And A Bab
In the second half of the Rookie Blue season finale (here's part one), the team continues their search for a lethal suspect with a four-year-old grudge and winds up sort of back at the beginning. Ben Bass reminds us all that someone needs to give him an acting trophy at some point already, Missy Peregrym might be indestructible, and just wait until you find out all the personal problems that we're going to need until season six (which there will be!) to resolve.

Andy is uncomfortable about having to work alongside Marlo (Rachael Ancheril) in the hunt for mad bomber Ted McDonald. You know w...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Fragments' - Blowing Up The House

8/22/2014 9:59am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Fragments' - Blowing Up The Hou
We've come to the end of another season of Rookie Blue. It's been a season of ups and downs this year, so a strong finish is definitely in order. Boosted by the return appearance of a fantastic guest actor, "Fragments" starts an interesting enough story, although it places a tremendous amount of emphasis on a character who hasn't ever quite worked.

It's not uncommon for season finales to start well and end badly, so it's no surprise that everyone's getting ready for the Commissioner's Gala, Holly wants to get back with Gail, and Sam is offering Andy a key to his place that she doesn't want...

'Rookie Blue': What We Want To See For Each Character In Season
Tonight, ABC wraps up the fifth season of Rookie Blue by giving us the final two episodes back-to-back. While there's no word yet on whether 15 Division will get a season six, we're hoping it will - and so we're making a wish list of what we'd like to see for each of the show's main characters in the future. Read our thoughts below, and leave yours in the comments, then stay tuned for our recap and review of the finale.

(SPOILER ALERT - This article contains spoilers for the current season of Rookie Blue. Please note that we're making these predictions before having seen tonight's episodes...

'Rookie Blue's' Enuka Okuma Guest Stars In Tonight's 'Motive'

8/20/2014 2:07pm EDT
'Rookie Blue's' Enuka Okuma Guest Stars In Tonight's 'Motive'
Rookie Blue star Enuka Okuma is a featured player in tonight's Motive.

In the episode, entitled "Kiss of Death," the actress plays best-selling murder mystery author Lori Oliver, who crosses paths with detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira).

Enuka spoke with us about the guest spot during our interview in June; you can click here for some spoilery tidbits, but the non-spoilery part is that it wasn't a huge leap for her to visit the other Canadian crime drama.

"Years ago, I did a pilot with Kristin Lehman out in Los Angeles, so we've been friends since the...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Moving Day' - Culture Clash
Okay, Rookie Blue. You've gone a little off track the past two weeks, but there's still a lot to love about you. You're clearly making it up to us by inviting one of Canada's best character actors to the party, and coming up with a case of the week that's one of the better ones this season. However, we still want to hit Chloe with a shovel.

15 Division has installed cop-monitoring cameras, much to everyone's amusement and later, nervousness. It's one thing to laugh at your colleagues' conversations, another to realize your every move and word is being documented for other people to scrutin...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Exit Strategy' - The One With All The Drugs

8/8/2014 8:45am EDT
Rookie Blue
When last we left Rookie Blue, it wasn't a good time around 15 Division: Duncan Moore still worked here, Oliver took a job he didn't want to protect Andy, who in turn took a hit for covering for Duncan, and Dov discovered Diaz's drug addiction. Okay, so now that all that stuff is out in the open, what's anyone going to do about any of it?

Andy still thinks Oliver "stabbed me in the back" after he made the deal that potentially saved her job, but Sam does not share her vitriol. Nor does he think she has a good poker face. At least their renewed relationship seems to be going well.

For some...

Call 911: Cop Shows Have Officially Taken A Turn For The Absurd
Who’s solving crime on television these days?

On one hand we’ve got “Detectives Olivia Benson” (Mariska Hargitay) and “Fin Tutuola” (Ice-T) careening up, siren blaring with the red light spinning on top of the car; the ubiquitous ‘Blue Bloods’ clan; the squads from ‘Rookie Blue’, ‘Major Crimes’, ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘Longmire’ and ‘Chicago PD’; plus those two from ‘Motive’, not to be confused with the other two from ‘The Bridge’ or ‘The Killing’ or ‘Murder In The First’.

What they all have in common is that, at least in these procedural dramas, all the characters are “on the job.” The down si...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Deal With The Devil' - Duncan Moore's Revenge

8/1/2014 9:19am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Deal With The Devil' - Duncan M
This week's episode of Rookie Blue deals with the two storylines that have been brewing all season: Andy having to finally clean up the mess left behind by the disaster that was Duncan Moore, and somebody finally getting wise to what's going on with Chris Diaz. Some of this is satisfying, some of it will make you scream at your TV. Regardless, it's forward progress, and we'll have to see what happens now that some significant bombshells have been dropped.

Oliver's happy to be demoted, so happy that he's out drinking with Sam and Andy. His happiness is short-lived, though, when he walks int...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Two Truths And A Lie' - Sam's F
Sam Swarek hasn't had a lot to do so far in the new season of Rookie Blue, so we're due for an episode that puts him back in the spotlight. And given that the series made a point of introducing Sam's estranged sister to us in the first few installments, it's no surprise that Sam's A-story also involves his family - namely, his ne'er do well father. It's time to get a big glimpse into what makes Sam tick.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, it's up to Sam to discover who killed Brian Gowdy, the man we previously just thought was in Costa Rica. Oliver thinks we're looking at "a se...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Going Under' - Will Diaz Get Busted?

7/11/2014 9:03am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Going Under' - Will Diaz Get Bu
Rookie Blue has never been afraid to give its characters flaws, and we see several of them hitting bottom or close to it in this week's episode. While some seem to be on the mend and others are still on the edge of disaster, it's installments like "Going Under" that remind us why we've followed these people for five seasons: we can identify with them and their foibles as much as their strengths. They might no longer be rookies by definition, but sometimes they certainly still act like it.

As we learned last week, Chris Diaz has a drug problem. Now everyone else is starting to notice, begin...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Wanting' - The Last Days of Duncan Moore?

7/4/2014 9:07am EDT
Rookie Blue
Things have been up, down and all over the place in the current season of Rookie Blue, but now that we've spent three episodes sorting out everyone's personal drama and introducing new characters, it's time to get back to the business of policing. That means an installment which finally deals effectively with the Duncan Moore situation, reminds us that Gail is not the Ice Queen of Toronto, and reveals one rookie's new deep, dark secret (to the audience, anyway).

Andy and Duncan have just made another arrest, and the officer behind the booking desk looks a lot like Curtis Armstrong, which m...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Heart Breakers, Money Makers' - Love Hurts (Literally)

6/27/2014 9:15am EDT
Rookie Blue
Rookie Blue came back last week with a lot of question marks, and the third episode has a few more to add to our collection. Directed by none other than Gregory Smith, "Heart Breakers, Money Makers" throws wrenches in existing relationships, teases at least one possible new one, and still can't make us warm up to the new characters - but it's pretty good for the first episode that definitively moves past all the drama that ended season four.

The cops of 15 Division are preparing for this year's Fite Nite (the annual boxing event first referenced in season one). Let's hope Duncan fights bet...

Enuka Okuma On 'Rookie Blue' Season 5 And Visiting 'Motive'

Enuka Okuma On 'Rookie Blue' Season 5 And Visiting 'Motive'
Our Rookie Blue hit parade rolls on with the lovely and talented Enuka Okuma, who plays no-longer-rookie Detective Traci Nash on our favorite Canadian import. Enuka sat down with us last week to discuss Traci's third season out of uniform, her new romance with fellow investigator Steve Peck, and the other great show that she dropped into this year.

Last season, much of Traci's story was about her professional life, but in season five it's her personal one that will be on the front burner, in more ways than one. After refusing to give up on her in season four, Steve finally wears Traci down...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'All By Her Selfie' - Andy The T
ABC might've billed Thursday's Rookie Blue as a two-hour season premiere, but what it actually is, is two separate episodes broadcast as one package. This becomes apparent from the jump, because everything seems like at least a few days have passed since the events of the previous installment, and McSwarek fans are not going to be happy with what's happened since.

Oliver is 15 Division's new acting Staff Sergeant without the room looking too shocked over Frank's departure, and Andy is awkwardly visiting Sam while drunk, and seeming to have already been introduced to Sam's estranged sister,...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Blink' - The McSwarek Reunion

6/20/2014 8:43am EDT
'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Blink' - The McSwarek Reunion
Season 5 of Rookie Blue starts off like a bad ex-significant other. Season 4's finale, after all, dropped a huge cliffhanger on us and then we got to panic over it for a few months. Now, here it comes back into our lives like nothing happened...because canonly, nothing's happened. "Blink" picks up in the immediate aftermath of "You Can See The Stars," allowing us to take in all the fallout.

Having professed her love to an unconscious Sam, Andy is clearly stricken as she watches him being wheeled in for what's referred to as "major surgery," and she starts to unravel as she tells Traci how ...

Ben Bass Previews 'Rookie Blue' Season 5: 'It's Been A Real Plea
Our favorite summer show Rookie Blue is back, which means that we can get answers to a lot of questions - the most important being what's going to happen to newly minted detective Sam Swarek. Thankfully, we have Ben Bass to ask about that. Ben joined us for a chat recently to discuss his reaction to Sam's predicament, what's ahead in Season 5, and adding yet more new faces to the 15 Division roster.

SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up through Season 4 of Rookie Blue, or absolutely don't want to know anything going into tonight's season premiere, stop reading now and come back on Thursd...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: A Shooting Prompts Andy's Confession

9/13/2013 9:20am EDT
Rookie Blue
We've reached the end of season four of Rookie Blue - the one that fans seem to either love or hate. That doesn't change with "You Can See The Stars." This finale is pretty much as polarizing as the rest of the season.

The action continues from last week's episode "Under Fire", with Oliver having been kidnapped by unhinged offender and assault victim Kevin Ford (returning guest star Michael Cram), who's pretty much obliterated any chance he had of resuming a normal life at this point. Ford has Oliver in the trunk of his own patrol car, and is driving it to who knows where.

Meanwhile, Sam ...
