Sparking a backlash in the comments, many praised Nathan for his sense of humor. “Gotta love Nathan and his dad jokes,” one wrote. “Nice to know even A-list actors crack dad jokes,” another added.

Now that he’s back on set DebutantNathan has been treating fans to Instagram updates, most recently on June 24, when the star noticed viewers trying to discreetly film the cast and crew at work.

“I’ve learned that a great indicator of a show’s success is how rude the onlookers and paparazzi are on set,” Nathan joked on Instagram.

With the seventh season set to premiere in January 2025, fans are desperate to learn more, but details are scarce for now. We do know that the run will consist of 18 episodes, and the weekly schedule won’t be interrupted this time around.

As for the plot, star Eric Winter teased what will happen next. Speaking exclusively to HI!The actor who plays Tim Bradford has opened up.

The Rookie will return for a seventh season in January 2025.

“I think we’ll see Tim and Lucy learn how to deal with their emotions at work.

“We’re going to see them start in a place where they’ve shown they care about each other, and now they have to figure out, can we give each other space to do our job and let our feelings be in a safe place but not rush anything and hope that nobody strays?”

When asked about his reaction to the January release date, Eric said: HI!: “I was really nervous at first, honestly. I was disappointed, but then I talked to a lot of people in the pre-production meetings and it all made sense. I know how much of a priority The Rookie is for ABC, and because it’s an election year and there’s a lot of time on it, they’re trying to protect it.

“There would be too many gaps, and the fans don’t like that. So they’re really trying to put us in a lineup where we can do eight episodes in a row without any breaks, so I appreciate it for that reason.”
