Bridget Moynahan and Steve Schirripa make a dynamic duo on the hit CBS crime show “Blue Bloods” and as real-life friends.

While filming for the highly anticipated Season 12, Moynahan and Schirripa snapped a cute pic together with some gorgeous scenery in the background. The first photo shows the two smiling together in an adorable selfie. The second photo shows the background of the first pic, featuring the Statue of Liberty and a ferryboat caught by some fantastic sunbeams.

“Thank you #NY and #ladyliberty and @steveschirripaofficial for a wonderful day @bluebloods_cbs #season12 #letsdothis,” the “Blue Bloods” actress captioned the post.

Generally, Moynahan and Schirripa spend a lot of time together on the “Blue Bloods” set. Moynahan plays Erin Reagan, Bureau Chief for the District Attorney’s Office and daughter of Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. Schirripa plays former NYPD detective turned DA investigator Anthony Abetmarco. The two work on a lot of cases together after Schirripa joined the cast as Abetmarco in Season 6.

Anxious to watch the next season already? You’ll have to wait a few more months before “Blue Bloods” returns to its Friday night time slot.

Here’s What You Need to Know About ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 12

The fan-favorite CBS crime drama returns Friday, Oct. 1 at 10/9 CT. After a relatively short Season 11, fans hope that the show will go back to its original 22-episode format for the fall.

If you haven’t caught up yet, you can watch Seasons 1-9 on Hulu. But Seasons 10 and 11 are only available on Paramount +. Unless you choose to buy or rent the episodes through another platform. If you don’t have cable when the new episodes premiere, worry not. You can still stream the episodes through Hulu or Paramount +.

Returning cast members include series regulars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, and Will Estes. We’ll also see Marisa Ramirez, Len Cariou, and Vanessa Ray returning to their roles. Parade also reports that Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, and Robert Clohessy are coming back.

For fans wondering about Will Hochman, who showed up at the end of last season as Joe Hill, executive producer Kevin Wade talked to TV Insider about it.

“We’d like to be able to weave him in and out of stories. 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,” Wade said.

Wade added, “The main thing that we try to do every season is take our characters a year older, a year wiser, in some cases a year less cautious, and let them loose, write to those actors. We have to give them new dimensions every year because they need something to play that they haven’t played before.”
