A group of young and ambitious rookie cops continue to navigate the emotional trials and tribulations of their professional and personal lives. After three years on the job, these rookies are well on their way to becoming experienced officers, but at what cost? It's been six months since Andy McNally and Nick Collins left for their undercover operation. But while they were gone, everything seems to have changed at 15 Division, on the Season Four premiere of "Rookie Blue," THURSDAY, MAY 23 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

In the season premiere, "Surprises," Andy and Nick continue to work undercover infiltrating a meth pipeline. However their covert mission goes sideways when Nick � then Andy � go missing. Meanwhile, a random arrest at 15 Division puts Sam Swarek and the other officers in the middle of the drug investigation-turned-rescue operation. Finally, Andy must figure out how to cope with the transformation of her own life as well as those of her friends at the station and continue to do the job she loves.

That's what being a cop is: adjusting to new situations, rolling with the punches. Change is constant, and if you don't adapt, you're left behind. So when Andy returns to find that Sam Swarek is now a Detective and that he's moved on, she's going to have to figure out how to deal with it. Meanwhile, Dov's life gets awkward when a one-night stand with Frank's goddaughter becomes more complicated. Chris is torn between staying at 15 Division and moving his new family back to his smaller, safer hometown. Traci is learning to work with new detective Swarek while trying to move on from the loss of her fiancé, Jerry Barber. And although Nick and Gail have cemented their relationship, Nick can't seem to shed the feeling that all is not right between them. Last season, our officers got what they wanted and had to deal with the repercussions. This year, they will have to look change right in the eye and learn to adapt -- leaving them with some big, bold choices to make.

DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, March 2014) In keeping with last season's theme of 'change', 15 Division welcomes two new characters who shake up the familiar dynamic. Inspector John Jarvis (Oliver Becker, Rent-A-Goalie) strolls into 15 Division with a serious agenda. He wants the real story: is this a division full of heroes or a minefield full of screw-ups? Seamlessly flipping from pleasant to menacing, Inspector Jarvis is a political spin-master of epic proportions. He's out to shake things up and make his mark. Also new to the team is 15 Division's brand-new rookie, Duncan Moore aka "Selfie" (Matthew Owen Murray, Degrassi: The Next Generation). He is the very picture of a fresh-faced millennial: confident, eager to impress, and excellent at pointing out mistakes, particularly other people's. But when Duncan struggles to fit into the group at 15, the officers soon have their hands full with this challenging and well-connected new recruit.
