"We're very pleased that the show has connected with viewers, especially considering the challenge of finding an audience in the summer, and are excited to pick it up for a second season," said Quinn Taylor, ABC's senior vice president of movies, miniseries and acquisitions.

Rookie Blue will return to production later this summer in Toronto, though the network didn't indicate when the show might return after its first 13 episodes run.

Still waiting for word on a second season are other new summer series The Gates and Scoundrels.
