Will Tom Selleck Leaving after CBS Canceled Blue Bloods?


The Reagans’ future is still up in the air.

On Tuesday, February 21, CBS announced that nine of its shows, including NCIS, NCIS: Hawaii, 60 Minutes, CSI: Vegas, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Tough as Nails, Lingo, and 48 Hours, had been renewed for the 2023-2024 season. However, a few of popular dramas, notably Blue Bloods, were missing from the schedule, leaving fans wondering whether this is the end of the Reagan family enterprise.

According to Deadline, the series, which stars Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg, is in “active renewal negotiations” with “proposed budget cuts among the points that need to be hammered out.”

As the blog pointed out, it’s normal for broadcast networks to request budget cuts for long-running series.

They’re also hearing that the Blue Bloods cuts were “pretty deep.” As a result, the decision to proceed would be further delayed.

The good news is that, according to Deadline, negotiations are progressing in a positive way. And, given that Blue Bloods is still one of the network’s top five shows.

We can only hope that CBS brings it back for Season 14 since Friday nights just wouldn’t be the same without it. Keep an eye out!

In terms of the network’s Friday night lineup, fans are still waiting to see if S.W.A.T. will be renewed, as well as CBS’ freshman hit series Fire Country, which was renewed in January.

  1. I’m all for CBS renewing BLUE BLÒODS for their next season. It’s 1 of the GREATEST LONG RUNNING SERIES that has great actors like Tom Selleck & Donny Wahlberg & Jamie(can’t remember his name). Sorry they took Linda out of the series she kept Danny in line.
