Blue Bloods Season 14: Confirmation, Release Date & Everything We Know

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 Most Recent 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.

Blue Bloods Season 14 Is Confirmed

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.

Blue Bloods Season 14 Release Date

Since the latest Blue Bloods season 14 news sees the development of the newest installment delayed by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, a premiere date hangs in the balance. Normally, the Blue Bloods season 14 release date would occur during the fall or winter season. Blue Bloods season 11 was the only chapter to air later than October. With all of these things in mind, it’s possible that the Blue Bloods season 14 release date could be pushed back to the fall or winter of 2024.


However, this is purely speculative and there won’t be more news until agreements are made, and the strikes reach an end. Whenever Blue Bloods season 14 does finish the production process, it will fall in line with the rest of the show and air weekly on CBS. While network television is on the decline, Blue Bloods is a rarity in that it’s one of the few shows that audiences are still tuning into on cable. Regardless, Blue Bloods season 14 will join the rest of the installments on Paramount+ once it has finished airing.

Blue Bloods Season 14 Cast

Some of the best Blue Bloods season 14 news is that the majority of the cast is returning to reprise their roles. The Blue Bloods season 14 cast will see Tom Selleck (Magnum P.I.) return to one of his best roles, Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. In addition, Donnie Wahlberg (Saw II) is coming back to play Detective Danny and Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot) returns as Bureau Chief of the New York City District Attorney’s Office Erin Reagan. Will Estes (The Dark Knight Rises) will once again play Sergeant Jamie and the Reagan patriarch Henry returns, expertly portrayed by Len Cariou (About Schmidt).

The Blue Bloods season 14 cast will also include the recurring Reagan grandchildren and fan-favorite coworkers in the series. Blue Bloods has acquired some phenomenal guest stars over the years, such as Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Danny Trejo (Machete), and even musician Jimmy Buffett, so expect a few star-studded cameos in season 14. Co-creators Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green are retaining their roles going into season 14 and showrunner Kevin Wade, who took over during Blue Bloods season 2, is also returning.

Blue Bloods Season 14 Story

There isn’t any Blue Bloods season 14 news regarding a story. However, a lot can be gleaned from the season 13 finale and the overall trajectory of the series. The Blue Bloods season 14 story should first be punctuated by Jackie Curatola’s (Jennifer Esposito) surprise return. Not seen since season 3, Curatola is now the Chief of Police in Suffolk County and is enlisting her former partner Danny’s help in tracking down an elusive serial killer that is terrorizing her town. Erin may be moving forward in her career by running in the election for New York’s District Attorney position.

While she did withdraw her name, she hasn’t entirely let go of the prospect. Other Blue Bloods season 14 story details are easy enough to guess based on how the characters have interacted over the course of the series. Frank will continue to have contentious relationships with city officials all while trying to put his family first. Hopefully, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike demands will be fulfilled so that the series can resume filming. At that point, a Blue Bloods season 14 trailer should become available and consequently, reveal more about the plot.
