Since the end of two of Hollywood’s biggest strikes, fans have been desperate for informaiton on when Blue Bloods returns for Season 14. Read on for when you’ll see new episodes starring Tom Selleck and the rest of the Reagan family.
CBS’ popular police procedural, Blue Bloods, focuses on the fictional Reagan family who have a long history with law enforcement. Blue Bloods premiered in September 2020 and wrapped up its 13th season in May 2023. The successful TV series stars Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Will Estes, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Abigail Hawk, Vanessa Ray and more.
When CBS initially released that nine of its series had been renewed for the 2023-2024 season – including NCIS, NCIS: Hawaii, 60 Minutes, CSI: Vegas, Survivor and more – Blue Bloods was left off the roster. This led many fans to believe that Season 13 would be the last for the Reagan family. Thankfully, in March 2023, the long-running police drama was renewed for a 14th season by CBS.
To greenlight the new season, Deadline reported in March 2023 that “cast and producers agreed to salary reductions in order to keep the show going and keep hundreds of crew and other support personnel whose livelihood depends on it employed.” Blue Bloods remains CBS’ No. 1 most-watched primetime program (a position it’s held since 2010) and is the No. 3 broadcast drama with 9.54 million viewers, our sister site also reported.
If you’ve been watching the news – or keeping up with your favorite actors’ Instagram accounts – then you’ll know that the actors’ and writers’ guilds went on strike in the summer of 2023. For background: On July 13, 2023, the national board of the Hollywood actors’ union SAG-AFTRA approved to strike. The union represents 160,000 television and movie actors. During the strike, actors are not allowed to work union jobs, promote their respective films and shows, attend press junkets and premieres and more.
The actors’ strike cam,e two months after the WGA began their strike on May 2, 2023. The demands requested by the actors and writers are similar: They want better compensation for TV shows and movies, increased residual payments for their work on streaming services and regulations on artificial intelligence.
Now that both strikes are over and done with: When does Blue Bloods return for Season 14 to CBS? Here’s what we know.
