Your first and ultimate online resource for talented actor, Nathan Fillion.

The Rookie is currently in production, and the ball will keep rolling on it despite more positive tests for COVID-19 among the crew of the series. First up, in case you missed it, the Nathan Fillion starrer is coming back for another season on ABC. Cut to this fall, and production has commenced on Season 3 of the cop drama. It has not been smooth sailing for the ABC show, though.

According to Variety, five crew members have tested positive for COVID-19 as filming on Season 3 of The Rookie has commenced. Despite the positive tests, The Rookie’s production company Entertainment One is continuing to film after they confirmed that the set underwent a “deep cleaning.” While Netflix’s head honcho has reported protocols saving money, an intense cleaning sounds expensive.

In further precautions, crew members of The Rookie who tested positive for COVID-19 are self-isolating, and those they came in contact with were notified. The cop drama, which ended Season 2 with Nathan Fillion’s John Nolan suffering a huge betrayal, is not the first show in a coronavirus world to continue filming despite positive tests. CBS’ Young Sheldon temporarily paused production after one of its production crew members tested positive.

What sets The Rookie apart is how it has decided to soldier forward. The Rookie is choosing to move along without much fanfare, so Season 3 presumably should not see a premiere delay.
