ABC’s ‘The Rookie’ Adds Deric Augustine & Patrick Keleher for Season 7

ABC’s The Rookie has enlisted two new rookies for Season 7, with Deric Augustine (All American) and Patrick Keleher joining the cast. Their characters are set to debut midseason.

Created by Alexi Hawley, The Rookie stars Nathan Fillion as John Nolan, the oldest rookie at the Los Angeles Police Department. The series also features Mekia Cox as Nyla Harper, Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez, Richard T. Jones as Sergeant Wade Grey, Melissa O’Neil as Lucy Chen, Eric Winter as Tim Bradford, Jenna Dewan as Bailey Nune, Shawn Ashmore as Wesley Evers, Tru Valentino as Aaron Thorsen, and Lisseth Chavez as Celina Juarez.

In recurring roles, Augustine takes on the character “Miles,” a recent Texas transplant who, despite being a two-year veteran of the force, is considered a rookie at the LAPD. Keleher portrays “Seth,” another newcomer who appears to be an ideal police officer but struggles with the quick, decisive actions required by the job.

Hawley serves as an executive producer alongside Mark Gordon, Fillion, Michelle Chapman, Brynn Malone, Bill Norcross, and Jon Steinberg. Lionsgate Television is the lead studio and international distributor for The Rookie, a co-production with ABC Signature, which is part of Disney Television Studios.

Augustine is widely recognized for his portrayal of Muhammad Ali in the first season of MGM+’s Godfather of Harlem and for his role as Clay in the CW’s All American. His extensive TV credits include Apple TV+’s Swagger, Showtime’s Shameless, CBS’ Criminal Minds, the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, and Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger. He is represented by Greene Talent and Zero Gravity Management.

Keleher is making his television debut with The Rookie. He recently starred in the play Fatherland at The Fountain Theatre, and the production is set to go off-Broadway this fall with Keleher reprising his role. He is represented by SDB Partners and Liberman Zerman Management.
