Did The Rookie’s Melissa O’Neil Just Drop a Major Hint About Season 7?

Melissa O’Neil, known for her role in “The Rookie,” has thrilled fans by sharing a behind-the-scenes snapshot from the filming of season seven, which is currently taking place in Los Angeles. The actress might have also dropped a significant hint about what fans can expect in the upcoming episodes.

Using Instagram, Melissa, who portrays Lucy Chen, uploaded a black-and-white selfie in which she is wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest. In the caption, the 35-year-old expressed, “I love my job. Feels strange to even call it that. So happy to be back with friends that feel like family. We’ve been cooking in the heat these last few days in LA, but everyone’s keeping good spirits.

“Tonight – we’re watching the US Presidential debate with everyone at basecamp right now… Head on a swivel, friends! How are you doing?”

Fans quickly caught on to Melissa’s nod to her on-screen friend Tamara, played by Dylan Conrique, who moved out of Lucy’s apartment in season six, leaving viewers curious about her future on the series.

In season six, viewers saw Tamara decide to move out of Lucy’s apartment, raising concerns about actress Dylan Conrique’s future on the show. At the time, one fan wrote on social media, “ I hope her moving out doesn’t mean Dylan is leaving the show ,” while another questioned, “Are we losing Dylan??”

Thus far, Dylan Conrique has remained silent about her involvement in season seven and hasn’t shared any behind-the-scenes photos.

As fans eagerly wait to discover what the new episodes hold for Tamara and Lucy, it’s known that season seven will explore Lucy’s relationship with Tim following their breakup.

In an exclusive interview with HELLO!, Eric Winter, who portrays Tim, mentioned, “I think we’re going to see Tim and Lucy continue to learn how to navigate their feelings while being on the job.”

“We’ll see them pick up in a place where they’ve shown that they care about each other and now they have to figure out, ‘can we give each other space to do our job and allow our feelings to stay in a safe place but not rush anything and hope one person doesn’t go astray?'”
