    Maybe the writers left due to the pandemic and a 3rd grade drama class wrote the episode.

    Was this intended as the season finale? Or was it the result of a pandemic shortened season?

    Well, it is sort of a cliffhanger. Which I hate. When the new season starts, I probably won't watch until I hear online that the issue of Nolan being framed has been resolved, and the show is back to the normal I enjoyed before the mole-thread was introduced.

    I'm just wondering if they had intended to make it a cliffhanger season finale. It's listed as episode 20, and most (but not all) full TV seasons are 22 episodes.

    I think it was intended but not 100% certain.

    The show hasn't been renewed or canceled. Most of the bubble shows seem to being renewed.

    There have been a couple of the actors who have stated that it was renewed. I did see an article stating that the show was renewed, but found another one that said they were waiting. Last year, the renewal order didn't come until about a month after the finale appeared. I believe the ratings were better for season 2 than 1. The writers need to step it up a bit and figure out which direction they want the show to go.

    Season 1 appeared to have only 20 episodes so I am guessing 20 episodes this season was not pandemic related. I am also guessing that since there are more on location shoots that it is more expensive to shoot so less episodes?

    Some shows starting cutting down to 20 episodes per season last year and the The Rookie was one of them.
    I have to assume that this season was also planned for 20 episodes all along.
    (Which means they probably had all episodes shot when the lockdown orders came down.)

    There was a HomeCon panel with the cast on twitch today. Just by luck I saw a couple of tweets just before it started. Nothing earth shattering, but it certainly sounded like they all expected to be back for another season. They had the three boots, the three TOs, the sargeant and the show runner/writer.

    Entertainment Weekly had an interview with the show's creator and this question was specifically addressed. Here's the relevant part of the article:

    Hopefully, they will be busy going back to 6th grade.

    I'd like to see the two eps run side by side to see if any of the overt actions in the finale were hinted in the prev ep
