BLUE BLOODS Officially Renewed for Season 14

By Movieguide® Contributor 

BLUE BLOODS has officially been renewed for its 14th season after the cast and crew agreed to a 25 percent pay cut. 

The Hollywood Reporter reports, “the stars and key producers all agreed to the pay reduction in order to keep the Friday night cop drama running and keep the hundreds of production staffers employed for another season.”

“BLUE BLOODS has dominated Friday nights since its premiere and remained an important anchor for CBS’ winning lineup,” said Amy Reisenbach, CBS Entertainment president. “Led by the outstanding Tom Selleck, and an incredible cast and creative team, viewers continue to embrace the Reagans, their law enforcement family, and the series’ dramatic storytelling. We can’t wait to pull a chair up to the Reagan family dinner table for another fantastic season.”

The renewal makes BLUE BLOODS the network’s second-longest-running current scripted series after NCIS, which was recently renewed for its 21st season. 

“The drama remains one of CBS’ most watched originals and anchors its Friday night primetime lineup. The show is broadcast’s No. 3 drama in total viewers, averaging more than 9.5 million per episode. With delayed viewing, that number grows to top 11 million,” The Hollywood Reporter adds. 

Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes and Len Cariou will all return along with Selleck for this upcoming season.

Movieguide® nominated BLUE BLOODS: EPISODE 12.20: “SILVER LININGS” for the 2023 Faith & Freedom Award® For Television and Streaming. 

Movieguide® previously reported on BLUE BLOODS:

Fan-favorite BLUE BLOODS has yet to hear definitively about the series’ renewal status from CBS amid the network’s renewal announcements this week. 

Deadline reports that after weeks of deadlocked negotiations, the series will most likely return for season 14. 

However, Deadline also reports “rumblings” of CBS pushing for “pretty deep” cuts due to production costs. 

These cuts could come as cast reductions for BLUE BLOODS’ large cast—seven full-time regulars and five major recurring characters.
