The Reagans will be back in force for the 2022-23 broadcast season. Blue Bloods has been renewed for a 13th season on CBS. The 12th season will conclude on Friday, May 6th.
A police family drama series, the Blue Bloods TV show stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez, Vanessa Ray, and Sami Gayle with Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, Robert Clohessy, Steven Schirripa, Andrew Terraciano, Tony Terraciano, Lauren Patten, Rosyln Ruff, Luis Antonio Ramos, Callie Thorne, Dylan Walsh, and Jennifer Ikeda in recurring roles. The show revolves around the Reagans, a multi-generational family of New York City cops that’s dedicated to law enforcement. Patriarch Frank Reagan (Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner and runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family. His unapologetically bold father, Henry (Cariou), previously served a stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man, an Iraq War vet. Danny sometimes uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez (Ramirez). Frank’s daughter, Erin (Moynahan), is a New York Assistant District Attorney who is also a single parent to her daughter Nicky (Gayle). Frank’s youngest is Jamie (Estes), a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” He passed on a lucrative future in law and follows in the family footsteps as a cop. Eddie Janko (Ray) is Jamie’s wife and a fellow officer.
Airing on Friday nights, the 12th season of Blue Bloods averages a 0.45 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.05 million viewers. Compared to season 11, that’s down by 16% in the demo and down by 6% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). In the live+7 day ratings, the series averages a 0.78 demo with 9.77 million, gaining 74% and 61% more viewers, respectively. It’s frequently one of broadcast network television’s biggest winners in the delayed viewing.
Here’s CBS’ renewal announcement:

Absolute BEST show on tv
I find Blue Bloods overly political and boring. The politics has consumed the law enforcement stories. The round table supper time is one family squabble. I have always thought that the show was beneath Tom Selleck. Will not miss if they cancel.
Love Blue Bloods and was watching all day Wednesday, the reruns. It was replaced with NCIS which I do not like. Is them temporary or a new format?
Can’t wait until the new season starts. Been watching reruns every day.
Tom Selleck is the best actor on TV. Each show makes you think about the issues. I cry while viewing each show. Been waiting for season 13. Yea, it’s almost here. By the way it’s the only show I watch on CBS.
Being retired military and law enforcement, Blue Bloods is one of the few broadcast shows I watch. Three generations of family feel the same way. It is as good as the early days of NCIS.
I am so happy bluebloods is returning. Not only us grandparent but my adult children & adult grandchildren love it also. The best actors & family ever
I enjoy the show and I think it tries to even put public opinion which sometimes demonizes police
I LOVE BLUEBLOODS AND TOM SELLECK!!! Anything and every film he is in, even love his commercials! DO every thing you can to keep him until he decides to retire. I don’t care much about for Big Brother or The Challenge USA. When they are on, I change the station to NBC or ABC. Or I watch something else digitally.
As a new fan of Blue Bloods, I am so happy CBS has renewed the series! I only wish the series’s contract was for an additional 5 years.
