"Blue Blood" finally wrapped up season nine with the anticipated wedding of two of its characters, but things didn't go as the fans expected. Tom Selleck explains why.


After waiting for about a year, twenty-two episodes, and breaks in-between, the fans of the "CBS" family procedural drama "Blue Bloods" got to see or better put, caught a glimpse of the anticipated wedding between Jamie Reagan and Eddie Janko.


The season finale titled "Something Blue" kicked off in a way fans were not expecting. Instead of a wedding preparation frenzy, they got treated to several subplots centering on fights between the bride-to-be and her soon-to-be sister-in-law, Erin Reagan, and conflict within Tom Selleck's character — Frank Reagan's inner circle.

The groom was not left out; he sought advice from his father — Frank on how to deal with his wife-to-be's misgivings about becoming a Reagan, and the latter tried to come up with a speech for his toast at the wedding.


The show didn't get to the wedding part until the last ten minutes, and the main ceremony didn't happen until the final four minutes. However, while fans expected to see Jamie and Eddie pledge forever to each other as they exchanged their vows, the show ended with the bride walking down the aisle, and the groom smiling at her from the altar.

The move by the showrunners enraged the fans, but Selleck in an interview with "Deadline" explained why they made that decision. The actor said the show is not into cliffhangers.


The 74-year-old explained that fans always have an expectation when a show is ending, and a good show is one that keeps them guessing. The actor compared it to the ending of "Magnum P.I" where the fans expected Thomas Magnum to die because there were teasers to that effect.

The actor who plays the role of a Police Commissioner on the show equally explained that "CBS" promoted the wedding so much, that they needed to add a lot of scenes the fans had no idea about to keep them interested.

Selleck also pointed out that the wedding was not going to be glamorous like that of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Kevin Wade, the executive producer felt they could do without it, and he agrees.


The actor also spoke on the show's renewal for season ten and his decision to come back despite getting a one-year contract, rather than two. He also assured fans that he would keep coming back as long as the rest of the cast returns.


" premiered in 2010, and they employed the services of a former NYPD detective, James, Nuciforo, to consult and fact-check the scripts.

Also, the show hired real-life brothers — Andrew and Tony Terraciano to play the role of Danny Reagan's sons. The family house where the famous "Sunday dinner" is held is in Brooklyn, and the actors eat the food on the dinner table. The return date for the new season is not out, but it is expected back in September.
