Blue Bloods was renewed for a 13th season in April 2022, as it is one of the most popular drama series on the network, and fans can’t get enough of it. The series has an average Rotten Tomatoes rating of 88%. As a result, continuing the show for another year after this strong reception was an easy choice for CBS. Alone, the TRPs statistic shows that it has been doing well for several seasons and deserves to be continued on this excellent franchise.
Months after the renewal, fans have been waiting for the sequel to find out more about the characters’ narrative arcs. If you’re as big a fan of Blue Bloods, we’ve put together a list of all the things you should anticipate for the time being while you reminisce about previous seasons before diving into the new season or when it will be available to stream on streaming platforms.
Is Blue Bloods Season 13 coming in October 2022?
With the announcement of a 16-episode season, fans have anxiously awaited any release date news. There have been numerous rumors and speculations surrounding the show’s return, but no solid information has emerged yet. The 13th season will undoubtedly premiere on CBS’s streaming service this year, as revealed in an official press statement and social media posts.
The series will join the CBS lineup of significant TV shows premiering in fall 2022, as shared in a post from CBS’s official Twitter handle: “CBS FALL SCHEDULE. From returning favorites to new faces, get into something good this fall with CBS.”
Blue Bloods Season 13 Release Date.
After months of hype, the network has confirmed that Blue Bloods Season 13 will premiere on Friday, October 7 at 10/9c on CBS and Paramount+ in the United States.
The series’ official Twitter handle confirmed the release date with a quote from the show: “Always listen to the person at the head of the table. #BlueBloods returns Friday, October 7 at 10/9c for an all-new season. We’ll see you soon!”
Blue Bloods Season 13 filming status.
Executive producer Siobhan Byrne O’Connor revealed that filming would begin in the latter half of July. She posted the news in her most recent Instagram post. Episodes may still be produced before the series resumes in October, with plenty of time left.
If readers aren’t aware, producers frequently want episodes to be shot for network TV at least six weeks before they air, allowing the post-production team plenty of time to assemble them after they’ve aired. As a result, beginning production on Blue Bloods Season 13 in late July seems suitable.
Why did CBS renew Blue Bloods for Season 13?
Deadline reports that the series is a top performer at 10 pm on Fridays, where it has aired since 2010 (except for a 4-week tryout during its first year on Wednesdays). The show is currently the No.4 series, averaging 9.81M viewers. The move comes after renewed seasons for the NCIS franchise – NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, and NCIS: LA – as well as CSI: Vegas and SWAT have been announced, in addition to new seasons of comedies including Young Sheldon, The Neighborhood, Bob Hearts Abishola, and Ghosts.
Where to stream Blue Bloods?
When Blue Bloods Season 13 is available to stream on CBS’s official website, along with prior seasons, it will be accessible on other streaming services such as FuboTV, Paramount+, and Hulu Plus, depending on the viewer’s preference.
Blue Bloods is also available on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu. The series can be streamed for free on Pluto or CBS based on the viewer’s location.
Blue Bloods Synopsis.
According to CBS, “Blue Bloods” is a series about a family with multiple generations of law enforcement officials dedicated to New York City. Frank Reagan is the Police Commissioner and head of the police force and his family. He runs his department in the same way he tries to run his household— smoothly and diplomatically— even when dealing with politics (which was something that caused difficulties for his father, Henry, during his time as Chief).
