At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Alexi Hawley discussed the future of “The Rookie” and spoke about the end of Season 4. Naturally, this led him to address Lucy Chen and Tim Bradford’s finale kiss and what it means for Season 5. “We left quite the cliffhanger at the end of last season with the kiss, which we’ve been building up to for four seasons,” he said before cueing fans in on what they can expect to come of it during Season 5. Hawley teases, “There will definitely be repercussions and some fallout from that, but I do think it’s fair to make you wait to see exactly where that goes.” (via Entertainment Weekly)
Season 5 of “The Rookie” premieres on September 25, 2022, so luckily, we don’t have long to wait to learn about the future of Chen and Bradford’s burgeoning relationship. Additionally, we don’t have long to wait to check out the next chapter in the “Rookie” franchise, “The Rookie: Feds,” either.

The likes of Frankie Faison, Britt Robertson, and James Lesure will also appear on the show, which aims to premiere two days after “The Rookie” Season 5.
