Starting over isn’t easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being a Los Angeles police officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including h more own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.

Man Of Honor

Officers Chen and West moved up to P2 status and shed their rookie roles on The Rookie Season 3 Episode 10, leaving Officer Nolan behind.  Will the show have to change its name once Nolan finally kicks his rookie status? Unlikely, but does someone always need to be the designated rookie to have the title make sense? Thanks to Nolan's extra 30-day punishment, there's still time to ponder that conundrum, and in the meantime, it's onwards and upwards for Jackson and Lucy. ... more


It was the end of an era on The Rookie Season 3 Episode 9 as two of our three original rookies were moving on...and leaving Nolan behind. At different moments, this installment had my heart in my throat, tears in my eyes, and even produced uncontrollable laughter.
