For another season, the Friday night staple will remain on the lookout.
The CBS Studios-produced show, which is one of its longest-running and most popular, will resume for the 13th season in 2022-23. The pickup comes 10 days before Blue Bloods' 12th season finale on May 6 and three weeks ahead of CBS parent Paramount Global's initial presentation on May 18.
According to CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl, "America's favorite first family of law enforcement is back for season 13." "The Reagans have a broadening connection with audiences almost everywhere and on every platform. Blue Bloods, in its 12th season, has over 250 episodes, but is still dominant in the ratings. "We have a strong creative conviction."
Blue Bloods' 12 seasons in charge of CBS are unchanged from NCIS (19 seasons) and NCIS: Los Angeles (13) in terms of longevity. This season, Tom Selleck's police and family drama is averaging 9.81 million viewers per episode (with seven days of delayed viewing), ranking fourth among all broadcast series (excluding sports).
Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Marisa Ramirez, and Vanessa Ray star together with Selleck. Kevin Wade executive stars with Ian Biederman, Brian Burns, Siobhan Byrne-O'Connor, Dan Truly, and Selleck.
Blue Bloods has joined a number of veteran series The Amazing Race, Bob Hearts Abishola, NCIS, NCIS: LA, The Neighborhood, SWAT, Tough As Nails, and Young Sheldon and rookies CSI: Vegas, Ghosts, NCIS: Hawai'i, and Secret Celebrity Renovation on CBS' slate for the 2022-23 season.
