White was nice enough to field some questions from The TV Junkies about what her plan for the show’s seventh season would have looked like.“We would have been doing 13 episodes, ideally, and we had five scripts written,” she tells us.
The TV Junkies: Would there have been any kind of time jump after the finale or would we have picked up immediately where Season 6 left off?
Sherry White: Yes, the new season was going to start about six months later.
So when the series was to restart, Sam and Andy had been married for six months, and a new batch of Rookies were starting out at 15 division.
TTVJ: Tassie had said the theme of Season 6 was “life isn’t a fairy tale.” What would’ve been the theme for Season 7?
SW: “How can you be a partner and still stand on your own two feet? Dov (Gregory Smith) was going to be without Chris (Travis Milne–who was not going to be a part of Season 7).
” The series was really exploring how to find your independence; within relationships, on the job, when you are used to working with others. We had four new Rookies starting at 15, each of them dependent on a Training Officer.Also, the big kicker for the new season was one of the Rookies was going to be killed on her first day on the job.Another year is now upon us, and while Rookie Blue may still be officially over and gone, The TV Junkies have some good news for fans of the Canadian cop drama.Despite the fact that the show ended on what many considered to be a perfect note–with fan favorite couple Andy (Missy Peregrym) and Sam (Ben Bass) aka Mc Swarek, tying the knot, and the rest of the gang moving onward and upward in their careers–we couldn’t help but wonder what would have happened if the show had been renewed for Season 7.The good news is we no longer have to speculate, and now finally have an idea of what another season would have looked like.Tassie Cameron, Rookie Blue’s co-creator and showrunner for all six seasons, had previously confirmed that if a Season 7 were to happen, long time Rookie writer Sherry White would be taking over control of the show.
