They’ve closed down the precinct of “Rookie Blue,” as ABC has axed the cop drama starring Missy Peregrym and Gregory Smith after six seasons.

Rookie Blue” hails from Shaw Media, Thump, Inc., Canwest, Ilana C. Frank Films and Entertainment One. It was created by Tassie Cameron, Morwyn Brebner and Ellen Vanstone.

“On behalf of the whole Rookie Blue family, thank you to all the fans for your dedication over the last six years,” said Frank. “After six fun and dramatic seasons, our story has come to its natural close. Alongside you all, it has been our privilege to watch [Missy Peregrym’s character,] Andy McNally develop from a young rookie to a distinguished officer. On behalf of eOne and ICF Films, I want to recognize the talented Missy Peregrym, Ben Bass, Greg Smith and the entire ensemble cast and crew who worked passionately and tirelessly to bring the characters and stories to life. Thank you to our broadcast partners Shaw Media and ABC for all of your support. As we say goodbye to 15 Division, the ICF Films team is already underway on our next project with eOne and Shaw Media and we are looking forward to sharing more exciting news in the near future.”

Frank and eOne recently extended their relationship with a three-year overall deal. Under the contract, eOne will serve as the studio, deficit financier and distributor on all of Frank’s projects across all media.
