Is Blue Bloods coming back for season 12?

Take a deep breath and don’t fret: On April 15, 2021, CBS announced that Blue Bloods has been picked up for a 12th season. The upcoming season will air between the end of 2021 and the first half of 2022.

While it’s tough to say what will happen thereafter, Tom has spoken out in interviews, sharing that he doesn’t see himself going anywhere.  

“I don’t think there is an end point,” Tom, who is 75, told PEOPLE in a 2020 interview. “I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older.”

Phew!

As was the case with Magnum P.I., Tom told PEOPLE that we’ve reached a point in Blue Bloods where viewers have come to know the beloved characters so well that they can anticipate what their next move will be. And, with that, we hope to never see the Reagan family and their friends go off the air!
