Blue Bloods has built a pretty sturdy legacy at CBS. The cop drama has been on the air for 13 seasons, and based on the strong ratings and devoted fanbase, it doesn’t look like it’ll be slowing down anytime soon. The problem, of course, is that the show has been taken off the fall schedule due to the writers and actors strike.
The show was not given a proper release date, and the more time passes without information, the more fans worry that Blue Bloods might not be coming back at all. Fortunately, recent news in the Hollywood world suggest we could be getting the show sooner than we initially thought.
Will there Be a Blue Bloods season 14?
For starters, Blue Bloods is definitely coming back for the 2023-24 season. It joins the rest of the scripted fall dramas in being delayed due to a lack of personnel, but the Writers Guild of America appears to be on the cusp of striking a deal with the AMPTP, which means we are a huge step closer to getting shows back on the air.
Deadline recently talked so network executives, and they noted that dramas will take eight to 10 weeks to get rolling again. This may sound like a long time, but it’s actually much faster than the estimates that were initially being given– there were stretches where it looked like Blue Bloods wouldn’t return until the summer, or worse, the fall of 2024.

If things continue to move at the same pace, we could be getting season 14 as early as March. There is, of course, the actors strike, which still needs to addressed and settled before cameras roll, but there seems to be momentum for the first time in months so we are hopeful that it will continue.
Better yet, procedural dramas will be given top priority when production starts again, due to the lack of special effects needed. This means that Blue Bloods will be near the top of the list as we head into 2024.
