The Rookie season 1 is about John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the history of the Los Angeles police. At the age when most of the law ministers are at the zenith of his career, Nolan leaves life in a quiet town and moves to Los Angeles in the hope of becoming a policeman. Surrounded by recruits who are 20 years younger than him, the main character intends to overcome all difficulties and fulfill the dream of his life. As a result, John finds himself in a completely unpredictable, dangerous and sometimes funny world of young policemen.
