Lead actor Nathan Fillion was also spotted on the set in his LAPD blues, suggesting that viewers can expect to see the pair share the screen together once again in the upcoming season.

The 40-year-old actress, who is also known for her roles in the movie Step Up and the series The Resident, first appeared in the cop drama in the season three finale. Following her debut, showrunner Alexei Hawley teased that her character could potentially become a love interest for Nathan's John Nolan.

Speaking to TV Line, he said: "We couldn't really do a ton of love interest stuff during the middle of the pandemic, but at the end of the day it felt like, 'Let's find him somebody to potentially take us into next season'. And Jen is really special, and I love the character."

Jenna's return to The Rookie comes after it was revealed that the ABC series has made a major change following the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of Alec Baldwin's movie Rust.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, bosses behind the ABC series has taken action to protect their cast and crew from a similar tragedy by banning live guns on set. In a memo sent around to cast and crew, it was announced that live weapons will no longer be used.

The note, which was sent to staff on Friday 22 October, read: "As of today, it is now policy on The Rookie that all gunfire on set will be with Air Soft guns with CG muzzle flashes added in post. There will be no more 'live' weapons on the show. The safety of our cast and crew is too important. Any risk is too much risk."

Across the first three seasons, the show has predominantly used CGI to depict muzzle flashes, although live weapons were used occasionally during the filming of major outside scenes.
