The executive producer of the CBS hit series "Blue Bloods" stated that scenes addressing the current global health crisis might find it's way into future contents of the show.

The continuous spread of COVID-19 caused, not only sporting events, and live talk shows to be canceled, but also the production of movies and series paused due to the situation of things.

This leaves further operations via social media platforms. Just as celebrities have been catching up with their fans, cast members of the "Blue Bloods," particularly the Reagans family, are committed to hosting a weekly get-together online.
