Does The Rookie star Nathan Fillion look thinner to you guys? Is it due to his recent weight loss, or just because of his new haircut?
In the new season trailer of the ABC show, The Rookie, that came out in September 2019, fans immediately noticed something wrong with Fillion; he looked way too thin. But, did he really lose weight? Apparently, he did!
While many of his fans were appreciative of his new weight loss, others were quite a skeptic and concerned about his overall health. Let’s look at what his supporters had to say about his weight loss. But, before that, let’s talk a bit about his thinner look, shall we?
Did Fillion Really Lose Weight?
It seems so! The 48 years old actor Nathan Fillion, who even preferred to have a stuntman for running scenes because of his weak knee, has certainly lost some kilos but he is still to speak about his physical changes.
Although Fillion has refrained from talking about his transformation, he took to his Twitter to share a photo of his much skinnier self. “This season we are using the new ‘chiseled filter’.” This sure has his fans overwhelmed.
The man looks really lean, right? But, why the change so suddenly? Was it for the second season of the show or for his new role in The Suicide Squad?
The Firefly star is quite silent about his recent weight loss but, his fans have a lot of theories about why he really lost weight! While some believe he has been losing weight since a year back, others think it to be sudden. Some also think that the reason he lost all that fat is to film the new season of The Rookie.

Fans, in addition to such, also have a theory that suggests that he is getting the chiseled look for his new movie, The Suicide Squad to work alongside the likes of Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Jared Leto.
Whatever the cause it may be, Fillion has kept his fans hanging in the air. Though the actor has remained mum, his fans had a lot to say about his new skinny look.
His Fans Thoughts About His New Look
Soon after the season 2 promo of the drama‘s release, Nathan’s fans went crazy over his new looks. Some thought he looks way too charming while others were highly concerned.
In a post where Fillion teases with the new chiseled look, one fan by the handle, H Comeau said that he looked thinner yet handsome. But, all in all, she liked the meatier look on him.
Similarly, another fan with the handle, Breaking Jesus joked, “So, when do we start seeing The Rookie Workout articles in our favorite fitness magazines?”
Yet another Twitter user by the name, Deborah Franko stated that he looked so much more chiseled this season and also joked that the new chiseled feature was working fine.
Another follower, however, showed concern over his health and wrote,
If this is a desired look so sad, makes you look like you have been really ill.
In a similar manner, Maggie Caylor, one of his fans, first talked about how good he looked now. But, she also shined light on the fact that he had lost a lot of weight and hoped everything is all right.
Nathan Fillion’s Thinner Look in the Trailer
The fan-favorite Nathan Fillion looked more than just thin in the first look of the second season of the ABC TV series, The Rookie, which was released on September 2019.
The second season started right where it left off in the first season. The promo teased a new angle for the case of Eric Winter who collapsed even though he received a cure for the virus.
Fillion, who in no way looks buffed as he was in the first season, is too eager to get a taste of action though he is just six months into his police career. He is somewhat trying to keep up with the youngsters since he is the oldest among the group.
New season brings new challenges and most probably a love triangle between Nathan, Sarah Shahi, and Ali Larter. Oh and don’t forget, Nathan and Sarah started their relationship at the end of the first season.
The show which follows the life of John Nolan (Fillion) where he pursues his dream of becoming a part of the LAPD, returned to the screens on Sunday, September 29, 2019.
Whatever the reason of his weight loss, Nathan sure looks charming now, ain’t he?
