Titus Makin Was Ready to Quit the Show Before Season 3

ABC/Ed HerreraABC’s “The Rookie” stars Titus Makin Jr. as Jackson West.

Ahead of season 3, Titus Makin, who plays the character Jackson, said he was ready to quit the series because he wanted to explore his character more as a black police officer. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Makin explained, “I woke up one morning and I was watching the news, and I was like, ‘I can’t do this. I can’t go play a cop on a show and not talk about the fact that I’m a Black cop’ … I had that conversation with Alexi [Hawley], our showrunner, and he was extremely gracious and he totally understood everything I was saying. I did come to that point where I was like, ‘If you want to write me out, I politely receive that. I would rather be written out than ignore the reality and not be able to tell the story.'”

Makin later said in the interview, “When we were about to come back for season 3, with everything that was happening in the press that we were seeing, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, all those things going on. It really helped me find a voice within myself that I think a lot of people are finding right now.”

Hawley and production were on board for exploring racism in the police force. And so, Jackson’s new training officer, Doug Stanton, who is played by Brandon Routh, was created. The character Stanton plays a “bad cop” who Jackson is determined to get removed from his position. But, Stanton will not be going down without a fight.

Fans will have to wait and see how the battle against Stanton will play out in the rest of season 3.
