The upcoming 14th season of Tom Selleck’s family-focused police series Blue Bloods will be its last when it airs in two parts in the spring and fall of 2024.

lue Bloods is the top-rated series on Fridays, according to Deadline, averaging more than 9.5 million viewers per week last season. It is also the third most-watched broadcast drama on TV.

The first batch of episodes will debut Feb. 16 on CBS.

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,” CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach and CBS Studios president David Stapf said in a joint statement [per The Hollywood Reporter]. “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.”

 

The show follows multiple generations of the Reagan family working in New York law enforcement and stars Selleck as New York Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. The cast also includes Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Jennifer Esposito, Steve Schirripa, Marisa Ramirez and Vanessa Ray.

“For the past 13 years it has been an honour 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,” said Selleck. “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 the CBS network for their steadfast support, and we offer heartfelt gratitude to the fans who gathered with us for dinner every Friday night.”

After its 14th season, Blue Bloods, which debuted in 2010, will rank among the 10 longest-running CBS scripted series of all time.

“It has been a tremendous privilege these past 13 years to fill the huge canvas that Leonard Goldberg imagined; a police procedural told from the point of view of four generations of a close-knit, fiercely loyal family. Blue Bloods will leave behind an enduring legacy that was collectively achieved by our extraordinary cast, our talented and tirelessly inventive writers, and the best crew in the business,” writer and executive producer Kevin Wade added in a separate statement shared with Deadline.

“CBS Studios and the CBS Television Network encouraged us to tell our stories in multi-layered narratives that have gone on to resonate with millions of people, and we thank them for their unwavering partnership and collaboration. We look forward to giving fans an exciting and emotionally satisfying final season, and we are forever grateful for their enthusiasm and their loyalty over all these years.”

On social media, fans reacted to the news of the cancellation of the Emmy-nominated series with sadness.

“My heart just broke. This show and it’s cast and crew have my heart! No other show is quite like this one. I feel like a member of the Reagan family because I have gotten to have dinner with them 275 times. Please say this isn’t the end! I’m not ready to say goodbye!” one person wrote.

“Not final season please. The show must go on!!!! Why do need to spoil a good thing? There is so much more to be said. You need to have the viewers vote on this and CBS you need to listen,” a second person added.
