The case is now closed on the series Rookie Blue.
Shaw Media, the Canadian company that produced the show, announced the series cancellation today.
“The success of Rookie Blue is a testament not only to the extremely talented team of Ilana Frank, Tassie Cameron, David Wellington and studio Entertainment One (eOne), but the electrifying cast that has resonated with legions of fans that have followed the show since Season One,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media. “After six seasons the series reached a natural conclusion and this season’s finale was the perfect wrap up for both our rookies and for fans, especially with the marriage of our favourite couple, Sam and Andy.”
The series first aired in 2010 and was a solid performer for ABC on its summer schedule. The series finale drew a respectable 3.68 million viewers.
It’s interesting to note that longtime showrunner/executive producer Tassie Cameron had stepped down from her role on the series and co-executive producer Sherry White was slated to take over had the series continued.
Set in Toronto, Rookie Blue starred Missy Peregrym, Gregory Smith and Enuka Okuma and followed the professional and personal lives of five rookie cops who had just graduated from the academy and ended up at 15 Division.
