As many “Blue Bloods” fans know, the heart of the popular CBS crime drama is the Reagan family. But the Reagans aren’t like every other tight-knit family. This is because they all work together in law enforcement. So yeah, not your typical Brady Bunch.
Nearly every episode of the show features the famous Sunday family dinner. These regularly include the oldest and youngest members of this crime-fighting family. But the brave family members consist of patriarch Henry (Len Cariou), his son Frank (Tom Selleck), respective children, and grandchildren. However, five members of the family have never missed a family dinner since the beginning of “Blue Bloods.”
Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Len Cariou, and Will Estes won the honor of being the only “Blue Bloods” cast members to appear in every aired episode.
Sean Reagan, who is played by Andrew Terraciano appeared in a total of 246 out of 247 episodes. The only episode he missed was Season 1, Episode 19. Sean’s older brother (Terraciano’s real brother), Tony has appeared in 187 episodes of the series. Nicky Reagan-Boyle (Sami Gayle), Terraciano’s cousin and Moynahan’s television daughter, was a series regular in Season 10 but has yet to return for Season 12.
Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, Marisa Ramirez, Robert Clohessy, and Vanessa Ray appear as long-running cast members who also fail to appear in every episode.
