ABC‘s The Rookie this week started production on its 100th episode, and original cast member Melissa O’Neil, bless her, was on hand with a Tiny Mic to chronicle the behind-the-scenes revelry.

The Rookie Season 6 will premiere Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024 at 9/8c, where it will now lead out of the sophomore drama Will Trent. The second episode of the new season, currently filming, marks the light procedural’s 100th overall, and to commemorate the milestone, ABC, lead producer eOne and ABC Signature gathered with the cast, crew and creative team for an on-set cake-cutting ceremony, held Wednesday.

Series front man Nathan Fillion, in an Instagram post of his own, noted that “100 episodes is a feat that’s really, really, really, really, really hard to accomplish. To top it off, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.” (Before you pause to Google, yes, Fillion’s Castle racked up 173 episodes over its run.)

“To everyone who works to put this show on the air, thank you for all the hard work over these challenging years, and congratulations,” he continued. “To everyone out there who watches, thank you x 100. For those of you who haven’t seen The Rookie yet, you’re in for a treat! 100 treats and counting.”

Following the actual 100th episode luncheon, Lucy’s portrayer shared how both Fillion and showrunner Alexi Hawley delivered “beautiful” speeches that made her cry.

“I love this cast, I love the crew, I love the whole team behind The Rookie, and that definitely includes you guys,” O’Neil told the fans watching her video. “You guys are why we get to keep doing this.”
