Summary Blue Bloods season 14 has been renewed, and the main cast will reprise their roles, including Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan. However, production has been delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, and the release date is uncertain. The Blue Bloods season 14 story is still unknown, but it is expected to continue the Reagan family's involvement in law enforcement and feature familiar dynamics and relationships.
CBS' police procedural Blue Bloods finished its 13th season in May 2023, and there is plenty of Blue Bloods season 14 news to be had. First airing in 2010, Blue Bloods is quite different from most procedural dramas as it doesn't follow one specific branch of law enforcement and the office culture therein. Rather, Blue Bloods centers on the Reagan family and their subsequent multigenerational power within the New York City criminal justice system. Each family member represents a different role in law enforcement. Frank (Tom Selleck) acts as the NYPD police commissioner while his eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is an NYPD detective.
Frank Reagan's youngest son Jamie (Will Estes) is an NYPD Sergeant and his daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan) was the Assistant District Attorney. Prior to Blue Bloods, Frank's son Joe was murdered by a corrupt police officer, and Frank's father Henry (Len Cariou) started as a beat cop before working his way through the ranks and eventually becoming a Commissioner himself. Blue Bloods has thus far seen the criminal justice family work together with various colleagues through a number of cases for the past 13 years, and the show is set to continue based on the latest Blue Bloods season 14 news.
The latest Blue Bloods season 14 news is that it's been renewed by CBS, but is facing delays due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Blue Bloods season 14 was confirmed prior to the season 13 finale premiere, and along with this confirmation is the news that the main cast will reprise their roles, including Tom Selleck. Frank Reagan is slowly making its way into becoming Selleck's most iconic role as Blue Bloods' episode count has now exceeded that of Magnum P.I., the series that Selleck is most well known for. Blue Bloods doesn't seem to be slowing down, even after being on the air for over a decade.
That being said, Blue Bloods season 14 news does confirm that there's a slowdown in the production process. Despite the confirmation that the show will go on, with some of the cast even reportedly taking pay cuts (via Country Living) to ensure its future, Blue Bloods is the latest on the long list of shows affected by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. CBS announced their fall lineup via Instagram and confirmed that "classic" episodes of Blue Bloods would be airing rather than the new season. In addition, Wahlberg shared an emotional video from the final day of shooting season 13 and confirmed that filming for season 14 would resume in July, but this was before either strike began.
The latest Blue Bloods season 14 news sees the police procedural renewed for another chapter. Blue Bloods season 14 was confirmed shortly before the premiere of the season 13 finale. The Blue Bloods renewal is unsurprising, as it's one of CBS' most prolific and long-running series. In addition, Blue Bloods season 13 was chock-full of shocking moments, major character returns, and significant narrative reveals that propel the Reagan family forward into the next chapter.
