From a media release:
Following an announcement made by the showâ€™s producers today, Global says goodbye to the beloved seriesÂ Rookie BlueÂ after six incredible seasons that saw Canadaâ€™s favourite stars in blue grow from rocky rookies to fearless crime-fighters.
â€œThe success ofÂ Rookie BlueÂ 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,â€ said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media. â€œAfter six seasons the series reached a natural conclusion and this seasonâ€™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.â€
WhileÂ Rookie BlueÂ has come to a close, Shaw Media is embarking on a new venture with the team behindÂ Rookie Blue, partnering with Ilana Frankâ€™s ICF Films and eOne on a new project. More details on that venture to be announced at a later date.
