The excitement among the loyal viewers who just watched the season finale of Blue Bloods Season 13 can’t be contained, and there has been a curiosity among the fandom to know more about the potential release date, plot, and cast, among other details, for the recently renewed fourteenth season of CBS’s Blue Bloods. Then you have reached the right place! We at Web News Observer have compiled all the necessary details that will help you know about the future schedules of this series in order to avoid much confusion.
Here is everything we know so far about Blue Bloods Season 14.
Blue Bloods Season 14 Renewal Status
The show has been officially greenlit for a 14th season by CBS, which was confirmed back on March 29, 2023, and it is not surprising that the renewal was approved as this police procedural drama television series has received favorable reviews from critics and viewers around the globe. The show 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 live, +35-day multi-platform viewing, the series scores more than 11 million viewers per episode. Blue Bloods is also a top 10 series on Paramount Plus, based on total minutes viewed. It does well on Netflix, and it ranks as the sixth-most-viewed channel on Pluto TV year-to-date. With strong performances on CBS, streaming, in syndication, and internationally, the drama has been a moneymaker for the company.
It has also been reported by Deadline, that the cast and producers have agreed to salary reductions in order to keep the show going and keep hundreds of crew and other support personnel whose livelihood depends on it employed, which eventually paved the way for a Season 14 renewal. As confirmed on the show’s Twitter handle, quote, “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 Release Date and Time Slot
The exact premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, as the series was renewed a few months ago and the finale episode of the 13th season premiered a few hours ago, which is way too early for the network to confirm any details. But if we have to speculate, the release window of Blue Bloods Season 14 is speculated to be for the 2023–24 broadcast season.
In order to maintain consistency, a similar gap has been noticed, as 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. In addition to this, the premiere of the new season can be at the same time slot of 10/9c, just like other original series.
As of writing this, we would like to highlight that this is just pure speculation! So, 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.
Blue Bloods Season 14 Plot
Though it is far too early to predict future storylines, the new season is likely to maintain the show’s core, which elaborated on the multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. The next season is also expected to pick up 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 writers may wish to adopt a different strategy and can put out a lot of effort to create fresh storylines and get them from the pages to the screen for the fourteenth season. However, some of the unanswered questions will also be addressed, which will be disclosed later. We thus advise viewers to be patient and wait a while, since the writers will undoubtedly provide more information about the prospective storylines for the sixth season as the premiere date approaches.
Until then, you can also let us know in the comments what will be explored in the new episodes.
Blue Bloods Season 14 Cast And Crew
The main cast members from the last season who will reprise their roles in the new season 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 series was created by Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess along with its top producing team led by showrunner Kevin Wade.
Blue Bloods Season 14 Episode Count and Streaming Options
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.
While you wait for more updates on Blue Bloods Season 14, stream 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 viewer’s location.
Danny and Baez are going to need extra help to get to the bottom of this case. Catch the season finale of #BlueBloods this Friday! You won't want to miss the surprise guest appearances. 😉 pic.twitter.com/DKGUtwlIx9

Blue Bloods Season 14 Official Teaser Trailer
There is no official teaser or trailer for Blue Bloods Season 14 because the finale episode of the 13th season was released a few hours ago, which makes it way too early for any major network to produce any new content.
Moreover, the filming hasn’t even commenced, as it will take a short hiatus before the network reveals some details about the next season’s storyline.
While the fans wait, we encourage viewers to speculate about the storylines that may be explored to extend this franchise for more seasons. Also, check out the official promo for the 13th season finale episode to remember how the cliffhanger was handled.
