'Blue Bloods' Fans, We Just Got Shocking News About the Show's Future

CBS has officially announced that beloved Friday night drama Blue Bloods is coming to an end, despite protests from both fans and stars of the series. As viewers await the final episodes to air in the fall, the network has offered a glimmer of hope about the show's future.

TVLine reported that during a recent shareholders meeting, Brian Robbins, co-CEO of Paramount Global (the parent company of CBS), delivered this piece of news: “In TV, new franchise extensions are coming for Dexter, Billions, and Blue Bloods.” Paramount has previously confirmed spinoffs of Dexter and Billions, but this is the first mention of more to come from the Blue Bloods universe.

The news shouldn't come as a huge surprise to fans of the NYPD drama. Despite its cancellation, the series continues to perform in the ratings for CBS. In its 14th season, it was the number 8 most-watched program on TV and regularly wins Friday nights.

Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck told Country Living, "They announced this was gonna be our last season. I think CBS will come to their senses. My hope is CBS wakes up to the fact that we're still winning the night on Friday night and performing on Paramount Plus."

Still, fans are likely scratching their heads at the news: Why would CBS opt for a spinoff, rather than continuing the popular series beyond season 14? The network has not offered further comment on the news.

This isn't quite the update Blue Bloods fans were hoping for, but we think any opportunity to see more of the Reagan family is a win.
