Is someone leaving Blue Bloods at the end of season 9? We’ve heard a number of questions on the subject, especially after Tom Selleck recently said that the cast is not signed beyond this current season.

We understand the questions and the fears that so many have about the future of the series, especially since there have been plenty of occasions over the years where cast members exit shows once their contracts expire. It could, in theory, happen here. Yet, at present, there is zero evidence that any actor is going to leave. As a matter of fact, we’ve got three different reasons for you why everyone may stick around.
The money – It may not be something that most people want to talk about, but it is a big part of the equation when it comes to being on a show like this. Because of the cast that is associated with being on Blue Bloods, it’s easy to want to stick around for a long time. Having a great salary opens the door for you to do other creative ventures during the off months, and you’re also going to have a large group of people out there who will likely support you because they’ve seen you on the show.
The camaraderie – Being on Blue Bloods is about being a part of a family, and we do think the show family is something that people appreciate. Not only do most of the cast members have good friendships with one another, but they’ve also more than likely have many friends with the crew — there may be many people behind the scenes who have also been there from the beginning. There’s an investment in these people and their lives that we don’t see too many wanting to break away from unless there is a really specific reason for it.
The schedule – Yes, doing 22 episodes of just about any show under the sun is strenuous. It’s a lot of work! Yet, at the same time, it’s actually not too bad compared to some other network shows. Blue Bloods has a lot of interior sets, meaning that for some characters, you may not go out on location as much. Meanwhile, because of the rather-large cast and the way that the stories are divided up, you don’t have the same work commitments that you do if you’re in 75% of the scenes on another show. Family dinners are often one of the only times the whole group is actually together.
