Blue Bloods season 11: How CBS is promoting family dinners

Blue Bloods season 11

Do we have a further sense of how CBS is promoting Blue Bloods season 11? From a family-dinner standpoint, the answer is “yes.”

The photo HERE comes from the official Instagram of star Will Estes — even though the image being used here is of an old family dinner as opposed to something from the new season, it’s a reminder that CBS is well aware of the value that this has with a lot of viewers out there. Family dinner is a touchstone of this show, much like it is a touchstone of a lot of people in their everyday lives.

We’ll admit that entering this season, we were nervous as to how family dinner was going to work. Would the producers abandon it, provided that these things are harder to do in the era of the pandemic? We know that the virus is being written into the story somewhat, but it’s possible that the premiere takes place in a post-pandemic world or the Reagans have figured out some other way to ensure their safety. (There have been some teases from social media suggesting that family dinners are still happening within some shape or form.)

We know that there will be some people out there wondering where Nicky isn’t present in this photo — first and foremost, remember that the character was absent from part of last season. Also, don’t take this as a sign that producers are phasing out the character in the present; we know that Sami Gayle is still listed as a series regular. (We understand that Jack Reagan isn’t there either, but he’s been MIA from the table by and large for a while.)

What do you want to see in terms of family dinner on Blue Bloods season 11?
