The much-anticipated reveal has finally happened as CBS network announced the premiere date of season 11 of “Blue Bloods.” Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming season.


Season 10 of “Blue Bloods” left viewers disappointed, ending early on May 1 with only 19 episodes. The season finale ended with a shocking twist as fans were introduced to a new Reagan, Joe Hill, who no one knew ever existed.

Since it was revealed that Hill, who was discovered by Danny’s son, Sean, was the son of late Joe Reagan, fans have been eager to see what would become of the storyline. Luckily, the wait is coming to an end soon as the much-anticipated return of season 11 is finally here.

Yesterday, network CBS announced that the upcoming season would premiere on December 4. The broadcast shared the great news on Twitter with a photo of the Reagan clan enjoying their iconic family dinner time.

The new season is expected to explore Joe Hill’s presence in the family and how it would affect everyone else.


The tweet received over 3,000 likes from fans who flooded the replies with comments about what to expect in Season 11. Others described the announcement as the best news of the day and disclosed that they couldn’t wait for the big day to come.


The main cast of the police drama is expected to return for season 11. Veteran Tom Selleck would return as Frank Raegan and Donnie Wahlberg as Detective Danny Raegan.


Len Cariou, Will Estes, Marisa Ramirez, Vanessa Ray, and Bridget Moynahan are all set to reprise their former roles. Will Hochman, who plays Joe Hill, will also feature in the upcoming season.

Unlike previous seasons, Season 11 would have only 16 episodes instead of the usual 22 episodes because CBS cut it short due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


The new season is expected to explore Joe Hill’s presence in the family and how it would affect everyone else. According to executive producer Kevin Wade, Hill’s introduction would affect other members of the clan, and fans would get to see how that would play out.


Viewers may recall that episode 19, titled “Family Secrets,” saw grandson Sean revealing that a DNA project at school caused him to stumble on an unknown first cousin, Joe Hill.

Then, Paula Hill, played by Bonnie Sommerville, told Frank that his late son Joe fathered a child with her whom she kept secret and the episode ended with Sean bringing Joe to the family dinner.

The entire clan welcoming him with open arms. Fans took to Twitter to react to the news, expressing their shock and the joy that the late Joe Reagan lives on.
