ABC and Global Television jointly announced today the renewal of the summer’s popular drama series, “Rookie Blue,” for a fourth season.
On average, ABC’s “Rookie Blue” is the No. 1 series among Adults 18-49 in Thursday’s 10 o’clock hour this summer to date. The ABC drama is growing its overall audience by 4% over the comparable telecasts of last summer. In fact, “Rookie Blue” topped its year-ago premiere (on 6/23/11) by 5% to open its 3rd season with its most-watched telecast since August 2010 – since 8/19/10. For the 2nd summer in a row, “Rookie Blue” stands as the No. 1 drama on the major networks in Adults 18-49.
The fourth season of the series is currently in development and will move into production in Toronto later this summer.
