Nathan Fillion has joined The Rookie!

ABC has lured Nathan Fillion back into a life of crime-solving, tapping the ex-Castle star to headline the cop-themed dramedy The Rookie, TVLine has confirmed.

According to Deadline, The Rookie — which nabbed a straight-to-series order from the network — reunites Fillion with onetime Castle showrunner/EP Alexi Hawley and finds the TV fave playing John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the LAPD. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable, small town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop.  Now, surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous and unpredictable world of a “young” cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.
