Season 12 of “Blue Bloods” will be here before we know it. But in the meantime, it’s nice to see little sneak peeks of the cast on set.
The show’s official Twitter page likes to drop teasing images for fans as we get closer to Oct. 1. In their most recent post, “Blue Bloods” shared a picture of Will Estes’ character Jamie Reagan, an NYPD cop.
Based on the photo, it looks like Jamie’s trying to stay undercover, sinking low in his car seat and pulling his baseball cap down. Totally inconspicuous.
But the “Blue Bloods” caption confirms that Jamie’s trying not to be seen. “Hiding from Monday like….” reads the caption.
The caption is both hilariously relatable and an interesting clue to what Jamie will get up to this season. For those who don’t remember, we left off in Season 11 of “Blue Bloods” with Jamie hiding a big secret from his older brother Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) about their nephew, Joe Hill. When Danny finds out the secret, he and Jamie have to team up to save their nephew from a gunfight. According to TVLine, the season ends with a family dinner discussion about Joe’s role in the family.
We’re not quite sure where Season 12 of “Blue Bloods” will take the youngest Reagan sibling. But we can’t wait to see all new family dynamics come into the picture with the addition of long-lost nephew and grandson, Joe Hill.
How Will Joe Hill Fit Into Season 12 Of ‘Blue Bloods?’
Joe Hill, played by Will Hochman, is the son of the late Joe Reagan. We met him at the end of Season 10, but he became a recurring character in Season 11. Will we see even more of him in the upcoming Season 12?
TV Insider thinks not. The outlet spoke with executive producer Kevin Wade right around the time of last season’s finale, who said Joe Hill won’t appear full-time on the new season.
“We’d like to be able to weave him in and out of stories,” Wade said. “He obviously has a great chemistry and connection to our cast, and my anecdotal evidence is that the audience really liked what he brought to the show. He has a fresh relationship with the characters that they’ve been with for 11 years.”
Apparently, Hill’s still struggling with belonging to the Reagan family, and all it entails.
“He recognizes it for what it is and for the value of it but also wants to be his own person,” Wade said. “Which seemed to me to be a very useful wrinkle to use however we’re going to grow this character and however often we get to do that.”
Expect to see more of Hill and the rest of the Reagans when the show returns on Friday, Oct. 1.
