'Blue Bloods' Fans Just Got Amazing News From Tom Selleck

Blue Bloods will return for its thirteenth season on Oct. 7, with star Tom Selleck returning as patriarch Frank Reagan, the police commissioner of New York City. The season already has some seeds planted for key stories, like Erin Reagan, played by Bridget Moynahan, running for District Attorney.

TV Insider spoke with Selleck about season 13 of Blue Bloods and his future on the series after this season. As he teases, he's open to continuing and agrees with Moynahan's take on the show's run.

As Selleck says, he agrees that it would be great if Blue Bloods made it to 15 seasons. "I've got a mortgage. I'm game," Selleck told the outlet, possibly referring to his other job selling reverse mortgages to daytime TV viewers.

It does seem like Selleck enjoys his time on the series and takes pride in the role he's cultivated for over a decade. "It's a show about a law-enforcement family and their point of view, but it doesn't mean they're always right and their adversaries don't have a point...unless they're just flat-out murdering criminals," Selleck says, making a slight joke at the end.

Selleck also discusses Frank Reagan's mindset in the premiere, noting how his mind is working as he goes "incognito" to walk around the city late at night. "It gives him insight into the loss of morale in the NYPD, and he'll deal directly with that serious issue," Selleck says. "Frank has had to walk a tightrope in this woke environment. Now he's realizing he's not going to be as diplomatic, and I like that for him. He's due for a confrontation with Mayor Chase [Nip/Tuck alum Dylan Walsh], 'cause he seems to be talking out of both sides of his mouth, in Frank's opinion."


He also mentions how his support for daughter Erin will play out this season, noting that the entire family becomes involved. "He wrestles with that. Is his endorsement a plus or a minus? It gets intense for the whole family," Selleck added. Blue Bloods season 13 premieres on Friday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
