Blue Bloods Offshoot Hinted at by Paramount Exec

According to an article from TV Line, there are talks of a Blue Bloods spin-off series. No word if Donnie would be a part of it though. 

Blue Bloods Offshoot Hinted at by Paramount Exec

Maybe Tom Selleck was right: The Blue Bloods universe may not be finished after all.

In a presentation at Paramount’s annual stockholders meeting on Tuesday, Paramount Global co-CEO Brian Robbins hinted that a new Blue Bloods series is in the works following the CBS drama’s announced end later this year. “In TV, new franchise extensions are coming for Dexter, Billions, and Blue Bloods,” Robbins told shareholders, adding that “CBS’ hit Fire Country shows huge promise.” Now we knew that new offshoots of Dexter, Billions and Fire Country were already in development, but nothing has been officially announced about a possible Blue Bloods spinoff. Yet, anyway. (CBS declined to confirm any news when reached by TVLine.)

Blue Bloods, starring Selleck as veteran cop and family patriarch Frank Reagan, is set to end later this year with the conclusion of Season 14. Selleck and other cast members have lobbied for the show to continue, but CBS Entertainment president Amy Reisenbach has remained firm that it’s time for Blue Bloods to turn in its badge. “We love this cast, we love their passion for the show. All shows have to come to an end. It’s important to us to refresh the schedule,” Reisenbach told our sister site Deadline. “We are going to end the show come December.”

Selleck and his castmates might have a point, though: Blue Bloods was broadcast TV’s No. 8 most-watched program this past TV season, regularly leading Friday night in total audience. (With reporting by Matt Webb Mitovich)
