Rookie Blue cancelled by Global

From a media release:

Following an announcement made by the show’s producers today, Global says goodbye to the beloved series Rookie Blue after six incredible seasons that saw Canada’s favourite stars in blue grow from rocky rookies to fearless crime-fighters.

“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.”

While Rookie Blue has come to a close, Shaw Media is embarking on a new venture with the team behind Rookie Blue, partnering with Ilana Frank’s ICF Films and eOne on a new project. More details on that venture to be announced at a later date.

The sixth season of Rookie Blue delivered emotional twists and turns, from the bombing that rocked 15 Division, to the pregnancy that rocked Sam and Andy, and the event that fans have been waiting for – the “McSwarek” wedding! There are so many Rookie Blue moments that live in the hearts and minds of everyone that the series touched, so Global looks back at the drama as it grew from the new kid on the block to the country’s #1 Canadian drama series of 2015* with its Top 10 Rookie Blue Moments.

  1. I can’t believe they cancelled Rookie Blue, it was my favorite show. Why do all the good Canadian shows get cancelled, like Artic Air, Flash Point. Next your going to tell me Saving Hope, Remedy and Heartland are gone too. What is wrong with Canadian TV.
