Rookie Blue season 5 is wrapping up on Thursday, August 21 and fans are wondering whether the series will be renewed or canceled.
The joint venture by ABC and Global TV is loved by fans on both sides of the border.
It looks like the show has been renewed, although there hasn’t been an official announcement.
The two networks announced back in 2013 that they had ordered a season 5 with 13 episodes, and then in April of this year they ordered 9 more episodes.
But season 5 is ending after 11 episodes, leaving 11 more episodes ordered.
Global TV clarified the situation this week, with a representative saying via Twitter:
“The 22 episodes that were announced will air in an 11 episode S.5 (currently airing) & an 11 episode S.6, to air in 2015!”
As for a projected premiere date, based on past seasons, it should come in the third week of March.
If the show stays on Thursday nights, then that would be March 20, 2015 in Canada. It will likely premiere later as usual in the U.S., sometime in May, June, or July.
There’s also questions about whether season 6 will be the last season.
“That question is still up in the air. It’s great to hear the networks are interested in keeping us around, it’s such a vote of confidence and means an awful lot,” showrunner Tassie Cameron told Huffington Post.
“But then there are a lot of things to consider. There are the actors and there are contracts … I don’t know. I think it’s still up in the air. It’s a conversation we’ll be having in the next couple of weeks.”
