Blue Bloods Season 14 Release Date: What is the best estimate for its premiere?
The exact premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, as the 13th season finale episode premiered only a few weeks ago, which is way too early for the network to confirm any details. But if we have to speculate, the release window is speculated to be for the 2023–24 broadcast season. In order to maintain consistency, the season will likely premiere in the fall of 2023, with October being the ideal release window, and it is expected to premiere every Friday at 10/9c on CBS.
On the other hand, due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, writing for the season might have also been impacted like other shows on various networks, thus causing a significant delay in production to fully commence without hurdles. There is a slight chance that if the resolution isn’t provided soon for the writers, then the network might just change its schedule, and the season will likely not premiere until 2024!
Following these uncertainties, there is no chance that the network will release new updates regarding the release date this month. So, we would also like to highlight that this is just our guess that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame. Hence, we suggest that the viewers be patient and keep a close eye on the social media platforms to get all the details without missing out on any future updates.
In the meantime, check out the show’s Twitter handle announcing the renewal of the show, quoting, “The Reagan family traditions continue! #BlueBloods has been renewed for season 14 — we’ll save you a seat at the table.”

Blue Bloods Season 14: What to expect from the new season?
It is far too early to predict future storylines, but one thing is certain: The new season is likely to maintain the show’s core, by picking up the plot from the finale episode, “Forgive Us Our Trespasses,” which followed Danny and Baez teaming up with Danny’s old partner to find a copycat killer emulating a criminal’s murders from a previous case. Frank and Mayor Chase battle over how best to handle the city’s rising homeless population.
“Blue Bloods has dominated Friday nights since its premiere and remained an important anchor for CBS’ winning lineup,” said Amy Reisenbach, President of CBS Entertainment. “Led by the outstanding Tom Selleck, and an incredible cast and creative team, viewers continue to embrace the Reagans, their law enforcement family, and the series’ dramatic storytelling. We can’t wait to pull a chair up to the Reagan family dinner table for another fantastic season.”
The main cast members who are expected to return are as follows Tom Selleck as New York City Police Commissioner Francis “Frank” Reagan, Donnie Wahlberg as Detective 1st Grade Daniel “Danny” Reagan, Bridget Moynahan as DDA Erin Reagan, Will Estes as Sergeant Jamison “Jamie” Reagan, Len Cariou as former NYPD Commissioner Henry Reagan, Marisa Ramirez as Detective 1st Grade Maria Baez, and Vanessa Ray as Officer Edit “Eddie” Janko-Reagan.
The drama is created by Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess along with its top producing team led by showrunner Kevin Wade.
Blue Bloods Season 14: Frequently Asked Questions
What is the show about?
Blue Bloods is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood.
Why was it renewed?
According to Deadline, Blue Bloods was glaringly absent from CBS’ list of drama series renewals because of tense discussions in which CBS pushed for severe budget cutbacks, including 25% for actors and other above-the-line personnel. Later, in order to keep the show continuing and the hundreds of crew and other support staff whose jobs depend on it employed, the performers and producers agreed to compensation cutbacks. That made it possible for Season 14 to be renewed.
Will the 14th season be the last one?
No updates regarding the fourteenth season being the last one have been confirmed by the network or acknowledged by the cast or any crew members. So, there is a chance that the show might be renewed as it remains the night’s No. 1 most-watched primetime program— a position it has held since its 2010 launch — and is the No. 3 broadcast drama with 9.54 million viewers, with such amazing numbers the network might opt to renew the show for more seasons.
How many episodes will there be?
The next season is expected to have about 20 to 22 episodes with a runtime of 42 to 44 minutes, which are expected to air on a weekly basis. It is intended to follow the same count to maintain the story’s flow. On the other hand, we’d also like to point out that the titles and synopsis have not been released. These details will be revealed once the release date draws closer to avoid any early leaks about the respective plotlines and character arcs.
Is there any teaser for the third season?
No, the network hasn’t released any new teasers, as the filming reportedly hasn’t even begun.
In the meantime, we urge readers to start streaming all the prior episodes on CBS’s official website, along with other streaming platforms like FuboTV, Paramount Plus, and Hulu Plus, according to the viewer’s preference based on membership plans to choose from. You can also stream the series by renting or purchasing it on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu. The series is also available for free on Pluto, depending on the location.
