“I will 100% watch an Eric Winter lead show over The Rookie: Feds,” a Reddit user commented.

“So we’re all agreed that The Rookie: Metro is the next spinoff, right?” another fan wrote. “A proper backdoor pilot is gonna happen pretty soon, I’m sure, same as Feds. Eric Winter can handle a lead role.”

Some people do not, however, think Tim will leave The Rookie after Season 5.

“[I don’t know] if they would take Eric Winters over to a spinoff with the success of Chenford and how ratings are right now,” another Reddit user pointed out. “It would be a very poor decision [in my opinion].”

The Big Move to Metro

In The Rookie Season 5, Tim and Lucy eventually gave in to their affection for one another and went on a date. Despite the fact that Tim was a sergeant in Mid-Wilshire, he was still Lucy's boss in Season 5. To make their relationship appropriate, they needed to find a method for him to move out of her line of command.

Tim was worried they would scarcely see each other if Lucy offered to relocate out of their station. As a result, he got a desk job at Mid-Wilshire as a Court Liason Sergeant.

In The Rookie Season 5 Episode 13, Lucy hatched a plan to get Tim, who was obviously unhappy in his new employment, a better one. And thanks to some covert maneuvering on the part of Lucy, a job suddenly became available in the LAPD's Metro Division.

In Episode 13, Tim did take the Metro position.

The more important question is whether ABC will continue The Rookie for a sixth season. The likelihood of the show getting renewed, nevertheless, is high.
