Nicky Reagan-Boyle has been a part of Blue Bloods from its inception. She first appeared in Season 1 and has gone through numerous transformations throughout the series. She has not only grown older, but she has also attended college and established herself as a character other than Erin Reagan’s (Bridget Moynahan) child.
However, Nicky is a minor character on the program, and the speculations that have swirled about the show ahead of season 14 have primarily been around the idea that specific characters will be eliminated off the show in order to keep the budget of each episode as low as possible. Is Nicky going to be one of the casualties?
Is Sami Gayle quitting Blue Bloods?
Thankfully, the answer is no. Blue Bloods stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, and Bridget Moynahan decided to take wage cuts ahead of season 14 to keep the cast and crew together. This means that all of the supporting characters you’ve grown to know and love will remain in the program. At least, not as much as they have been in recent years.
Nicky’s limited role on the program (she was gone in season 12 and appeared in one episode in season 13) reflects the personal life of the actress who plays her: Sami Gayle. Gayle’s decision to attend Columbia University coincided with Nicky’s intention to go to San Francisco. However, Blue Bloods creator Kevin Wade is keen to bring the character (and Gayle) back to the show.
“I’m hoping she’ll swing by,” Wade told Express. “Once it had grown long enough, it was almost as if they were thinking, ‘Well, we should bring her back at least for a family dinner.'” We were intending to do it last season, but I don’t think her timetable coincided with ours.”
Given that Gayle is still planning to perform (she appeared in a theatrical production in January), we are hopeful that we will see her character in season 14.
