On the bright side? The family/cop drama’s final, 18-episode shift will be spread out across two batches of episodes — 10 airing in Spring 2024 (starting Friday, Feb, 16), and the final eight landing next fall.
Blue Bloods last season averaged 9.4 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), down just a tick from its previous averages (9.8 mil/0.8). Out of the 13 dramas that CBS aired during the 2022-23 TV season, it ranked No. 3 in audience (behind only NCIS and FBI) and tied for third in the demo (behind FBI and Fire Country).

“Blue Bloods will forever be a beloved part of CBS’ legacy,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, president of CBS Studios, said in a joint statement. “We’ll be forever grateful to the legendary Leonard Goldberg for developing this signature series and to the amazing cast led by Tom Selleck, who America embraced as family and watched as welcomed guests at the Reagan dinner table. We also sincerely thank the incredible writing and producing teams guided by executive producer Kevin Wade, for years of compelling episodes as they conceive this final chapter that we expect to be the most satisfying season yet for our loyal viewers.”
Added Selleck himself, “For the past 13 years it has been an honor and a privilege to work on a show that not only celebrates the men and women who protect and serve in New York City, but also displayed the importance of family. Working alongside these incredible actors, writers, producers, directors and crew has been a dream come true and I’m grateful to have been a part of this extraordinary group for over 275 episodes. Thank you to CBS Studios and CBS Network for their steadfast support and we offer heartfelt gratitude to the fans who gathered with us for dinner every Friday night.”
Showrunner Kevin Wade said, “Blue Bloods will leave behind an enduring legacy that was collectively achieved by our extraordinary cast, our talented and tirelessly inventive writers, and the best crew in the business…. We look forward to giving fans an exciting and emotionally satisfying final season, and we are forever grateful for their enthusiasm and loyalty over all these years.”
