First look: Nathan Fillion returns to ABC as The Rookie
ABC has released the first image and new details for Nathan Fillion's return to series television. Inspired by a true story, The Rookie stars the 47-year-old Castle alum as the oldest police rookie in LAPD history. "As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis," reads the show's logline. "If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he’ll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination, and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.” The Rookie received a straight to series order last October. UPDATE: Watch ABC's first teaser for The Rookie.

Nathan Fillion is using his experience with Joss Whedon on Firefly on ABC's The Rookie
“I had an experience on Firefly where everybody that worked on that show considered it the bar to which we could compare all of our other jobs," says Fillion, who is also a producer on the series in which he plays a 40-something rookie cop. "That was the benefit of Joss Whedon, who said ‘I want great actors that can make this language sing and I want people I can potentially spend seven years with’ and I benefited from that. I want The Rookie to be similar."
