Things are about to get serious for the folks on Rookie Blue.

The Canadian cop procedural returns stateside for a new batch of episodes, picking up three weeks after the evidence room bombing left 15 Division reeling.

After a much-needed respite, Officer Andy McNally and Detective Sam Swarek are ready to return to the daily grind. But when Andy is attacked by an intruder at a co-worker’s home, things threaten to turn deadly. (Watch the intense scene above.) There’s also the fact that Sam’s ex Marlo Cruz is pregnant with his baby – a life-changer could turn Andy’s world upside down.

“This is a really big episode. We ended last season with Marlo’s baby, and this is basically where the bomb drops,” Missy Peregrym tells ETonline ahead of Wednesday’s premiere. “You’re going to watch how Sam deals with that.”

Put simply, it’s going to be incredibly complicated.

Peregrym jumped on the phone with ETonline ahead of the U.S. debut (it’s well into its season-six run in Canada) to dish on the explosive premiere, Sam and Andy’s new challenge and the future of Rookie Blue.

ETonline: How do you think Andy will handle Marlo’s baby bombhell?

Missy Peregrym: Andy has no idea and that was really important to me that we played it that way. Sometimes on TV, it plays out as expected – this is going to happen, then this is going to happen, and this is how you’re going to feel. There’s just no way you can handle that news and understand how to [react to] that. There are so many emotions that come up – grief, for not being a part of Sam’s first child; anger, for the fact that it’s unfair; and confusion over the fact that you can’t really be angry because nothing is wrong. This isn’t an ideal situation and she has a really hard time figuring out where she fits and what a family looks with the information that they have.

ETonline: How does this forever change Andy and Sam’s relationship?

Peregrym: That’s what you’re going to be watching this season. It doesn’t change her love for him and it doesn’t change his love for her, and the fact that they wanted a family together. It’s really difficult because it affects your life so severely, but you can’t live your life as if there isn’t going to be another human being involved. There are all these lines and boundaries for figuring out what is the best thing. I’m sure Andy feels selfish because she wants to have it her way, but at the end of the day, you’re going to want to make sure that this child is cared for and loved in the best possible place it can be welcomed in.

ETonline: Andy has evolved so much over the course of the past five seasons now, but in the premiere, she’s attacked by an intruder at her colleague’s home. How different is this experience from the others she’s been victim to?

Peregrym: Andy’s been attacked a lot. (Laughs.) I think it’s always startling. The way that it started [for her on the show] was that everything is scary, everything is overwhelming and everything is threatening. But at this point, I really do feel like Andy has got a fierceness to her and a confidence and competence because she knows herself better. And because of her journey and all the times she could’ve quit or opted out for something different, she’s chosen to be in this. At this point, she takes her job very seriously and yes, it affects her but in a great way. She gets fired up. If anything, she’s finding her voice a lot more because of everything she’s been through. It’s not necessarily about pleasing everybody and doing everything according to somebody else’s rules, but naturally following her instincts. Every human being does that as they get older and that’s been fun to play – and important.

ETonline: In regards to Andy’s relationship with the other members of 15 Division, which dynamic shifts or evolves the most this season?

Peregrym: The second-most important one, aside from Andy and Sam, is really with Oliver. He’s really been a father figure to her and I love their relationship, but it isn’t like that anymore. It isn’t like a father-daughter situation in the same way that it was before. With anyone you fight with or you don’t understand or there’s a misunderstanding so big and hurtful, when you get through that, your dynamic shifts and that’s what’s happened with her and Oliver the last two seasons and we’re going to be going into that more this year.

ETonline: Can you highlight an upcoming episode that we should keep our eyes peeled for?

Peregrym: This is one of my favorite seasons by far that we’ve shot. I’m really excited about all of it and where the writers took the relationships. It was a delicate balance with how they were going to do things and I’m really proud of this next season.

ETonline: Is there any indication that this is it for Rookie Blue?

Peregrym: We have no idea! Yeah, we’re still [waiting] as usual. Every year we go through this where there’ll be episodes that air and hopefully we’ll be finding out soon if we’ll be going back. It really could go either way, I’ll say that.

Rookie Blue premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

  • Missy Peregrym is a very talented Hollywood actress
  • She has enjoyed a fairly successful career to date
  • When will she land the big leading role she deserves?
When it comes to the entertainment industry it is never easy to make it to the top and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get the recognition that your talent truly deserves. There are some very talented stars working very hard to make a name for themselves in the acting industry at the moment, who are still not landing the big roles that their acting career really does deserve.
Actress Missy Peregrym has been in the acting industry for quite a few years now and she has proven that, not only is she a very beautiful woman, but she is also a very talented actress along with it. In all fairness to Missy, she has enjoyed a relatively successful acting career to date, with a number of television shows and movies to her name over the years.
During her acting career, Missy Peregrym appeared in six episodes of Heroes in 2007, before then going on to play the role of Andi in Reaper, appearing in 31 episodes of the show between 2007 and 2009. However, her biggest role to date would have to be in the hit television series Rookie Blue, where she has played the character Andy McNally in 63 episodes of the show, yet she is capable of so much more than this.
Missy Peregrym has the acting talent to mix it with the best that Hollywood has to offer and it is surprising that she has yet to land a big leading role in a Hollywood blockbuster. It can surely only be a matter of time before Missy gets the big role that her talent truly deserves and we have no doubt that she has the potential to become a huge Hollywood star in the future.
Do youn think Missy Peregrym has the talent to become a huge Hollywood leading lady?

There are a whole host of different film festivals that take place throughout the year and it is always interesting to see how the movies on show fare in the future. the Toronto International Film Festival took place back in September and one of the movies that premiered there has now had its US rights bought, which will lead to an official release date being announced fairly soon.

That movie is the Missy Peregrym starring movie Backcountry, which clearly did enough to impress the right people, with the US rights being acquired by IFC Midnight earlier in the month. Missy and the rest of the cast and crew will now be looking forward to seeing when Backcountry will get its official release date.
For those of you wanting to know more about the movie, Backcountry centres around a beautiful young woman who is taking a break from her hectic executive job, to spend some time with her boyfriend on a camping trip. The couple have a rather unsettling encounter with a stranger and decide to take a detour, which leads to them getting lost and leaving them at the mercy of the wilderness and the dangerous animals that live there.
As well as starring Missy Peregrym, the rest of the cast of Backcountry includes the likes of Eric Balfour, Nicholas Campbell, Jeff Roop, Melanie Mullen, and Ashley Nay, among others. Backcountry is directed by Adam MacDonald, based on the script that he developed himself, with the movie set for US distribution by IFC Midnight and an official release date expected for some time in 2015.
