The newbie: Brandon Routh suits as [Spoiler]’s TO – 2021 FIRST LOOK
Brandon Routh features in these exclusive 2021 First Look photos from ABC’s The Rookie.
As recently reported, the Legends of Tomorrow and Chuck Alaun will return during the third season of the Light Trial as Officer Doug Stanton, an 11-year veteran of the LAPD, whose views prove polarizing at Mid-Wilshire Station.
TVLine and the photo below can now confirm that Stanton will be Officer Jackson West’s (Titus Makin Jr.) training officer – even though “Doug’s aggressive methods cause instant friction with his rookie,” says showrunner Alexi Hawley.
At the time of his casting announcement, Routh said on Twitter that he “was honored and excited to join the wonderful team at The Rookie with timely, honest and self-reflective storytelling for Season 3. Thanks to Alexi and Hawley [series lead] Nathan Fillion for creating a show that is ready to fill the current moment and has the courage to face challenging topics. “

Now I know what you’re wondering: if Stanton West’s TO, where is Officer Angela Lopez (played by Alyssa Diaz)? Hawley tells TVLine, “Lopez will be driven in depth by becoming a beginner detective.”
The rookie will be on Sunday 3rd January at 10.9. Return to service and stay in its time slot for the second season. According to ABC’s teaser for the upcoming season, Fillion Officer John Nolan is “nearing the end of his training” and faces “his greatest challenge as a cop, coming to terms with the decisions he has made to pursue the truth “.
