Kevin Zegers has joined the cast of the upcoming drama series “The Rookie: Feds” as a series regular. The new spinoff of The Rookie will premiere on the ABC Network in the US on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, and stream the next day on Hulu.
Co-created by Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter of the flagship series The Rookie, comes “The Rookie: Feds” starring Niecy Nash-Betts as Simone Clark, the oldest rookie in the FBI Academy. The spinoff was introduced as a two-part event during the current fourth season of “The Rookie,” where Officer John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) and the LA division of the FBI enlist the help of Simone Clark when one of her former students is a suspect in a terror attack.
“The Rookie: Feds” stars Niecy Nash-Betts as Simone Clark, Frankie Faison as Christopher “Cutty” Clark, Felix Solis as Special Agent Matthew Garza and Britt Robertson, who recently joined the series playing Laura Stensen.
According to Deadline, Zegers will play Brendon Acres who is just out of Quantico. Brendon’s got a lot to prove in his first posting – not least because his background as the lead on the long-running TV series Vampire Cop means few people take him seriously. His years of method-actor training led not only to martial arts and gun skills, but also a master’s in computer science.
Zegers’ previous credits include ABC’s Rebel, Dirty John and Fear the Walking Dead.
Hawley and Winter executive produce “The Rookie: Feds” with Mark Gordon, Nash-Betts, Fillion, Michelle Chapman, Bill Norcross and Corey Miller. Entertainment One is the lead studio and international distributor of the series, a co-production with ABC Signature.
