The spin-off series The Rookie: Feds has a new FBI agent in town, and according to Niecy Nash-Betts, she’s “the oldest and newest rookie” at the academy.
Nash-Betts reprises her role as Simone Clark and serves as executive producer on the new series, which evolved from The Rookie. It follows on from the current fourth season, in which Officer John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) and the LA branch of the FBI turn to Clark for help when one of their former students is suspected in a terrorist attack.
Felix Solis plays Special Agent Matthew Garza.
“In the two-episode spinoff that we saw in ‘The Rookie’ in season four, we see that he meets this woman, he asks that she be taken to the FBI. When she lands, she’s a little bit of a villain and kind of goes off on her own,” Solis said.
Frankie R. Faison plays Christopher “Cutty” Clark, Simone’s father, who says he loves the dynamic between the two because they have instant conflicts. Simone is not your average FBI agent working clinically or by the book, but she gets the job done.
“There are two ways of doing things, the FBI’s and Simone and Clark’s, and they’re not the same,” Nash-Betts explained. “Simone gets into a lot of trouble, but she digs her way out of the holes she causes by doing her job.”
The series also stars Britt Robertson, Kevin Zegers and James Lesure.
The Rookie: Feds airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on ABC and streams on Hulu the next day.
