With the SAG-AFTRA strike over, numerous productions have resumed. While it’s good news for many viewers, it’s bittersweet for fans of “Blue Bloods.” The show will return for Season 14; however, it will be its last. “Blue Bloods” will divide its final season into two parts, and fans can at least take solace in those who work on the procedural know it’s ending in advance so that the writers can wrap things up. It may be the beginning of the end, but series star Donnie Wahlberg is looking pretty happy all things considered.
The actor, who plays Danny Reagan on the long-running CBS series, posted a cheeky video to Instagram where he bobs his head to “Presha” by 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. The camera then pans over to reveal his co-star, Marisa Ramirez, who plays Detective Maria Baez. Wahlberg added the caption, “Happy Monday! Reagan & Baez are back on the set! Let’s go!” “Blue Bloods” Season 14 premieres on February 16, 2024, so there’s plenty of time to rewatch older episodes before Danny and Maria hit our television screens for the last time.
Fans are gearing up for the show’s conclusion

Donnie Wahlberg’s Instagram post is flooded with comments from fans, most of whom have conflicting emotions on the video. On the one hand, they’re glad to see Danny and Maria back in action, but they’re disappointed with the show ending. Many comments put out the red carpet by writing similar “Welcome back!” posts. Instagram user @lynn_mader_ shared the relatable feeling, “Love you guys love this show it’s the best don’t let this be the last season please! Tom [Selleck] probably wants to retire which I understand but Donnie is one of the next biggest stars in the show too why can’t they show go on!” Another fan added, “Can’t wait!!! But I’m also sad that it’s the last season.”
Fortunately, fans still have pretty much a full season of “Blue Bloods” to look forward to. Due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes cutting in the 2023/2024 season, most shows will premiere in the spring with a truncated episode count. Most series will likely receive 10 to 13 episodes, but “Blue Bloods” will get a bit more for Season 14. Deadline reports “Blue Bloods” Season 14 will air its first 10 episodes in the spring of 2024. The remaining eight will then air in the fall of 2024, meaning it will get 18 episodes in total. The show usually puts out at least 20 episodes a season, so while it’s a bit less, it should be enough to where fans don’t feel short-changed.
Through it all, it looks like Wahlberg has an optimistic attitude about the whole thing. And who knows? Maybe Season 14 will allow the writers to develop Danny and Maria’s relationship even further.
