The saga of the Reagan family will continue, CBS just announced they’ve ordered an 11th season of Blue Bloods for the 2020-21 season. The long-running family drama centers on the Irish-American Reagans, a multi-generational clan of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. New York police commissioner Frank Reagen (Tom Selleck) leads both the police force and his brood. The cast also includes Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez, Sami Gayle, and Vanessa Ray.
Although ratings aren’t as high for Blue Bloods as they once were, the CBS show is still going strong. Season 10, which finished airing last week, averaged a 0.65 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.69 million viewers. Compared to season nine, that’s about an 18% drop in the rating demo and a 9% drop in general viewership.
Selleck had said that he was negotiating for a two-season renewal but the network has only announced a season 11 pick up thus far.
The mass renewal comes as a number of CBS veterans are ending this season including Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary and Criminal Minds as well as Sophomore series God Friended Me.
“Thanks to these exceptional shows, we’re going to win the current season by 1 million viewers,” said Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment. “Next year, we’ll have these strong returning series as our foundation… and Super Bowl LV too. It’s a well-balanced lineup across Entertainment, News, and Sports that will put us in an incredibly stable position for 2020-21.”
