Ok so last I’d heard, Rookie Blue got changed from July 17 to June 19.
When the fuck did it change to May 19th and how did I not fucking know?!?!?!
And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye
Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
And anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

Stop it. Stop it right now!!!
I really just wanna punch a big cookie. It looks really satisfying.
So does anyone know if Canadian shows get a tax break or something for the first 5 seasons? There’s a few comments on the tvline article saying that they do, and that this is why Rookie Blue is getting 22 episodes in season 5. That way they can have 11 in “season 5a” for summer 2014 and then wait until summer 2015 and have “season 5b”, which would essentially be season 6, and then they’d cancel it as they would no longer be getting financial assistance.
Just wondering if it’s plausible, because if it is, I’m going to be so pissed. They would’ve been better off saying that season 5 would 11 episodes only and then season 6 would be the final season rather than saying season 5 would have 22 episodes with the hope of a renewal for season 6.
I noticed this too and I do think it’s plausible. I’m not sure if it’s a tax break but it has to do with taxes. I think they get a grant for the first 5 seasons or something. I know people are speculating that the 2nd half will air Summer 2015 but I think they know the kind of backlash that would create…they’d be trying to sell two seasons as one and they’d be treating us like we’re stupid and I think they avoid that.
My personal thoughts are that perhaps having a bigger season would earn them more money to supplement the loss of grant money they receive for the 6th Season…
If that was their plan, if their ratings weren’t good, they wouldn’t get a 22 episode order so I’m just hoping it’s them wanting to earn maybe extra money this season before the tax whatever runs out. I dunno.
I just wanna know what Global TVs plans are for Rookie Blue cause as long as they air them I can just stream online whenever.
Same as ABC, unfortunately.
”Canada’s Global TV channel is following the same game plan, airing just 11 of the episodes this summer, reports ET Canada.”
Ok wow, I went away for awhile and now I have a lot of angry people in my ask box wondering what’s going on. They are probably starting so late because a new ABC series, The Black Box, is taking the Thursday night time slot at 10pm starting April 24. Once that is over, then Rookie Blue will start up.
They’re only airing the first 11 starting July 17th which gives it a September 25th end date assuming there are no hiatuses (which I suspect might be also why they start a bit later this year). The last 11 are TBD. I’ve seen people say January 2015 and summer 2015. I think December 2014/January 2015 makes the most sense though…

Pretty down about this tbh.
I’m used to my shows being split into seasons, because that’s how ABC Family does it, but…I never have to wait 44 weeks for the new season… I’m so grateful we get 22 episodes…I just hope that what they do is air it December 2014/January 2015 when other shows are still on Christmas break, instead of like summer 2015. That would REALLY make me mad because then it’s literally just 2 seasons masquerading as one.
Some great news for fans of Rookie Blue, with Global announcing the made-in-Canada police drama will be doubling down for season five, ordering 22 episodes instead of the usual 13.
”The first 11 episodes of Rookie Blue’s super-sized fifth season will air this summer on Global.”
So…are Canadians getting the shaft too?
“” – Premieres THURSDAY, JULY 17
In keeping with last season’s theme of ‘change’, 15 Division welcomes two new characters who shake up the familiar dynamic. Inspector John Jarvis (Oliver Becker, Rent-A-Goalie) strolls into 15 Division with a serious agenda. He wants the real story: is this a division full of heroes or a minefield full of screw-ups? Seamlessly flipping from pleasant to menacing, Inspector Jarvis is a political spin-master of epic proportions. He’s out to shake things up and make his mark. Also new to the team is 15 Division’s brand-new rookie, Duncan Moore aka “Selfie” (Matthew Owen Murray, Degrassi: The Next Generation). He is the very picture of a fresh-faced millennial: confident, eager to impress, and excellent at pointing out mistakes, particularly other people’s. But when Duncan struggles to fit into the group at 15, the officers soon have their hands full with this challenging and well-connected new recruit.
Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), Sam Swarek (Ben Bass), Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma), Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan), Nick Collins (Peter Mooney), Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia), Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon), Marlo Cruz (Rachel Ancheril), Noelle Williams (Melanie Nicholls-King), Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald), and Holly Stewart (Aliyah O’Brien) all return for Season 5.
Rookie Blue is executive produced by award-winning Tassie Cameron (“Flashpoint”), Russ Cochrane (“The Listener”), Ilana Frank (“The Eleventh Hour,” “Would Be Kings”), David Wellington (“The Eleventh Hour,” “Would Be Kings”) and John Morayniss (“” and “ ”). “Rookie Blue” is a production of IFC Films and leading indie studio eOne, who also distributes the series internationally.
