Rookie Blue, the high-octane police drama following the lives of five rookie cops, returns for a thrilling fifth season in a 2 hour season premiere on Sunday, June 22 at 7.30pm AEST on Universal Channel on Foxtel.
Season Five begins with two lives hanging in the balance. Officers Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) and Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia) have been shot in the line of duty, and both are in critical care at Memorial Hospital. But life at 15 Division must go on. Our officers have sworn an oath to serve and protect, no matter the consequences. But as the shell-shocked officers struggle to pull the pieces of their lives back together, they can’t help but wonder: will things ever work out the way they’re supposed to? It’s a season of life-altering decisions, and with Andy’s (Missy Peregrym) heart torn in two between Sam & Nick (Peter Mooney), she welcomes the professional distraction of training a challenging new rookie and will learn that sometimes even making the right choice can have serious consequences.
Meanwhile, Dov (Gregory Smith) finds himself reeling from Chloe’s marriage revelation and will have to decide if he can still trust her. Dov’s friendship with Chris (Travis Milne) will also be tested as Chris heads down a dark path – one that might threaten not only his friendships, but his job. Traci (Enuka Okuma) is progressing as a detective and in her relationship with Det. Steve Peck, until Leo’s father, Dex launches a nasty custody battle, prompting Steve to get in the middle. Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) is opening up more and more to Holly, but despite her newfound happiness, she must learn how to deal with conflict without resorting to her ‘Gail’ way if she wants to keep her.
This season, the officers will have to learn that even after all their struggle and change, life doesn’t always have a fairytale ending – but that doesn't mean there's no happily ever after.
Rookie Blue: Sunday, June 22 at 9am on Universal Channel, on Foxtel.
Encore Screening at 7.30pm.
