The drama of Alexi Hawley revolved around small-town man John Nolan, a law student from the University of Pennsylvania. After dropping out his college, he joined the construction business. A forty-year-old man packed his entire life and moved to Los Angeles to seek his dream of being a police officer after helping cops in a bank robbery case. His journey of becoming the oldest Rookie in LAPD, entering the dangerous and unforeseeable world of crime was quite interesting and fun-loving to watch in season 1.
Considering the season 2 final episode left not only Nolan on a cliff-hanger as well as all the viewers. The Rookie Police Officer was framed as a dirty cop by his mentor, who betrayed him. The betrayal from his friend completely reprimanded him. At the end of season 2, John Nolan was looking for evidence after he found that his mentor Nick Armstrong was working with Crime Boss Serj Darien, he was going to reveal it. But Nick was one step ahead and planted the evidence against Nolan while he was caught by police.
In season 3, We witnessed Nolan’s attempt to prove his innocence. You also saw how he cleared his name from this mess. John Nolan swept up plaster dust at his house in the Season 3 of The Rookie. However, it remains to be seen whether he can clean up the messes he has produced throughout his career.

The Official plot details are yet to be released; the last season got ended with a dramatic twist. In the upcoming season, After eventually graduating as a rookie, Nolan will be promoted to the rank of P2, which allows him to be a patrol officer and even work on his own, as he will no longer need a trainer.
We saw the police approaching Reynolds at the USS Iowa Museum and shooting him in the previous season of The Rookie. Bradford then decides to accompany her sister but declines to meet her father, subsequently endorsing Nolan for the position of a union representative.
Meanwhile, Lopez files a RICO suit against Stone but discovers that Evers notified Grey about the lawsuit and that they want to use Evers as an informant. The next season will pick up where the previous one left off, and it will be interesting to watch what happens next.
