CBS announced today that Blue Bloods will be coming to an end after its upcoming 14th season, which premieres in February. The now-final season will air in two parts, with Part 2 concluding the drama's story in the fall of 2024.
"Blue Bloods will forever be a beloved part of CBS' legacy. It ruled Friday nights with unprecedented dominance since its premiere and established itself as a pillar of our winning lineup with an exceptionally devoted fan base," said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, president of CBS Studios. "We'll be forever grateful to the legendary Leonard Goldberg for developing this signature series and to the amazing cast led by Tom Selleck, who America embraced as family and watched as welcomed guests at the Reagan dinner table. We also sincerely thank the incredible writing and producing teams guided by executive producer Kevin Wade, for years of compelling episodes as they conceive this final chapter that we expect to be the most satisfying season yet for our loyal viewers."
Blue Bloods stars Selleck as Frank Reagan, the Police Commissioner of New York, who runs his department in the same diplomatic manner he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his father during his stint as Chief. His three grown children also work in various branches of law enforcement. While their lives keep them busy, they all manage to gather together every week for Sunday dinner.
Part 1 of the final 14th season of Blue Bloods premieres on Friday, February 16.
CBS announced that its hit drama series BLUE BLOODS will return for a two-part 14th and final season starting on the Network, and available to stream live on #ParamountPlus, on Friday, Feb. 16, (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and finish in fall 2024. https://t.co/2VVxAy8pVT pic.twitter.com/ZfZ5XjVqbW— CBS Tweet (@CBSTweet) November 20, 2023
But it's clear Selleck and Cariou are showing their age. It's hard to pretend that they are father and son.
And the world has passed them by. The increase in crime, the refusal of prosecutors to prosecute, defund the police, it's all stuff that was never fully addressed in the show. In the real world officers are retiring early and morale is low; in the show's world Frank is still somehow holding the force together.
Still, sad to see it go.
Watched this show since it’s beginning. Love it and so sad to see it go. Glad they have time to wrap all storylines. Perhaps Erin and her ex could remarry and bring all the kids back for the end.
