Blue Bloods Renewed for Season 14, But Says Goodbye to Familiar Faces

Loyal fans of the long-running police drama "Blue Bloods" can rejoice! The show has been renewed for a 14th season. However, the renewal came at a cost, with cast and crew taking a 25% salary cut. The good news comes with a bittersweet twist – several beloved characters won't be returning.

Cast Shakeup

The press release confirming the renewal revealed a shift in the cast. While most core characters, including the Reagan family, are confirmed to return, five actors will not be back for season 14. Here's a breakdown of the departing cast:

  • Abigail Hawk (Abigail Baker): A fan favorite, Detective Baker's absence leaves a void. Her expressive presence and the hope for a more prominent storyline in season 14 are both dearly missed.
  • Dylan Walsh (Mayor Chase): The Mayor's character departs, potentially impacting the show's exploration of political dynamics within the NYPD.
  • Tony Terraciano (Jack Reagan): Youngest Reagan sibling Jack exits the scene.
  • Steve Schirripa (Anthony Abetemarco): The departure of DA Investigator Abetemarco removes a familiar face from the legal side of the NYPD's operations.
  • Gregory Jbara (Deputy Commissioner Moore): Deputy Commissioner Moore's absence may affect the show's portrayal of internal police department politics.

The absence of Abigail Hawk, who portrayed the popular Detective Baker, is a particular blow for many fans. Her character's potential for further development in season 14 is now sadly lost.

Returning Cast:

  • The core Reagan family: Tom Selleck (Frank Reagan), Donnie Wahlberg (Danny Reagan), Bridget Moynahan (Erin Reagan), Will Estes (Jamie Reagan), and Len Cariou (Henry Reagan)
  • Mainstays like Marisa Ramirez (Maria Baez) and Vanessa Ray (Eddie Janko-Reagan)

    The show will not be the same without Anthony. What a shame to come back minus one of the best characters on the show. I hope Blue Bloods brass rethnks this one.
