Join the Reagans around the dinner table for one last helping of television history. After nearly 300 episodes, the immensely popular CBS police procedural Blue Bloods is coming to an end following its 14th season. And actor Tom Selleck has served as the family patriarch, Frank Reagan, every step of the way since the show debuted in September of 2010. Selleck addressed the series’ conclusion (per Deadline):
“For the past 13 years, it has been an honor and a privilege to work on a show that not only celebrates the men and women who protect and serve in New York City, but also displayed the importance of family. Working alongside these incredible actors, writers, producers, directors and crew has been a dream come true, and I’m grateful to have been a part of this extraordinary group for over 275 episodes. Thank you to CBS Studios and CBS Network for their steadfast support and we offer heartfelt gratitude to the fans who gathered with us for dinner every Friday night.”
Created by Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess, the last go-round of Blue Bloods will premiere on Friday, February 16, 2024. The final season’s 18-episode allotment will be divided into two parts. After the first 10 episodes have aired, the final 8 will make their own separate debut sometime in the fall of 2024.
