ROOKIE BLUE will move to Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/PT on June 24 following the season premiere of BIG BROTHER at 8 pm. CBS will show the finale of The Briefcase at 9pm, but Global seem to have dropped that episode altogether. A CHICAGO FIRE rerun will round out the night at 10pm. EXTANT, SEASON 2 will premiere Wednesday, July 1 at 10 pm.

EDIT: Press Release confirmation.

@sherds ABC will be showing Rookie Blue starting at the beginning of season 6. Global will already be on S06, E06 by June 24, so there isn't a simsub opportunity.

Global will move Rookie Blue to Wednesdays because Thursdays will be filled with simsubs:

FOOD FIGHTERS, SEASON 2 - Thursday, July 2 - 8 pm ET/PT
BIG BROTHER, SEASON 17 - Thursday live eviction show moves to its regular time period on July 2 - 9 pm ET/PT
UNDER THE DOME, SEASON 3 - Thursday, July 2 10 pm ET/PT (regular timeslot)

DrDave . i was aware of that but i wonder if ABC thought they might catch some canadian eyes who hadn't watched the series and asked Global to shift .I doubt if ABC cares at all about Canadian viewers but the timing seems coincidental to me .

@sherds the timing was really just a coincidence driven by CBS deciding to air a two-hour season premiere of UNDER THE DOME on June 25. Anyone who wanted to watch season 6 of ROOKIE BLUE from the beginning will watch it on ABC, even if episode 6 is on Global TV the same day. BTW Nielsen doesn't count Canadian viewers in their ratings, so it wouldn't make any difference to ABC whether Canadians watch or not.

@jeffaustin90 I was wondering the same thing when I posted the schedule change. I did a quick check, but I didn't find anything. The on-screen promos said the next episode was a "season" finale, so there is at least some hope for another season.

Bell TV also says Season Finale in their EPG. A series that isn't afraid to refer to and show Toronto locations, streets and events. I'd like to see it continue for nostalgia sake as I used to live in Toronto. Time will tell.

Rookie Blue comes to an end after six seasons

Following an announcement made by the show's producers today, Global says goodbye to the beloved series Rookie Blue after six incredible seasons.

Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media: "After six seasons the series reached a natural conclusion and this season's finale was the perfect wrap up for both our rookies and for fans, especially with the marriage of our favourite couple, Sam and Andy."

While Rookie Blue has come to a close, Shaw Media is embarking on a new venture with the team behind Rookie Blue, partnering with Ilana Frank's ICF Films and eOne on a new project. More details on that venture to be announced at a later date.

Viewers can also catch up on the final season of Rookie Blue on GlobalTV.com and Global Go and Seasons 1 through 5 on shomi.
