Frank Reagan (played by Tom Selleck) and his family of New York cops and attorneys will soon be back on screens for the highly anticipated 13th season of the hit drama, . Ahead of the show’s return to , a new preview for the episode, titled Keeping the Faith, has confirmed there’s danger just around the corner for one of the Reagans.
Jamie Reagan (Will Estes) could face dire consequences after a violent altercation in the upcoming season opener of Blue Bloods.
The popular cop drama will return in just two weeks’ time and is set to establish some major changes for the series going ahead.
At the start of season 13, Jamie’s career and even life could be on the line after getting shot.
Details via TV Insider confirmed: “While the patriarch is unreachable — no one knows where he is! — Jamie is shot during a domestic violence situation by a felon released under Crawford.”
He may be left completely out of action for much of the season, and Jamie’s accident could even be the beginning of the end of Will’s 13-year stint.
The latest image from the next episode has also revealed much of the family looking concerned in a hospital, most likely visiting Jamie while he recovers from his injuries.
While it’s unlikely Jamie will be killed off in the coming weeks - there has been no word from the producers about his exit - he could be forced to take a considerable step back from his usual police duties.
In his most recent interview for the series, however, Will revealed he doesn’t see an end to his Blue Bloods role in sight just yet.
He told Looper: “I've thought about it personally, because I've been on the show for so long, but I haven't thought about it much creatively.
“I don't know what that will look like creatively. I hope that we have some notice, you know?
“Donnie [Wahlberg] said they can't end the show without saying this is the final season or some version of that. And I think he's right. I hope we get that warning. We might not.
“But, yeah, I hope we know that it's coming and wrap it up so in some ways it can be like a movie, you want a fitting end to a story.”
