Since 2010, Bridget Moynahan has had a recurring role on “Blue Bloods” that sees her as Erin Reagan, the Bureau Chief in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. After spending over a decade on “Blue Bloods,” she’s opening up about what it’s like on set. More specifically, she’s giving the details about the famous dinner scenes the show typically incorporates. 

During a 2019 appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” the veteran actress opened up about the symbolism of the familial scene on “Blue Bloods.” “I think people look at that scene and wish they had that or remember when they did that with their family since it brings back a lot of those memories,” she told the show’s co-hosts at the time. 

As for whether or not the cast is actually eating while filming, Moynahan spilled the beans. “For four hours, you’re eating,” she noted about the experience. 

The Future Of ‘Blue Bloods’

In other “Blue Bloods” news, fans have been buzzing about whether or not CBS will cancel the long-running crime procedural. It’s been on the air for over ten years. Here’s what we know: on April 15, 2021, CBS announced that the network had picked up the show for a 12th season. The upcoming season will air between the end of 2021 and the first half of 2022.

While it’s tough to say what will happen after that, “Blue Bloods” main actor, Tom Selleck, has spoken out in interviews, revealing that he intends to stay on the show for a while. 

“I don’t think there is an end point,” the 75-year-old told PEOPLE in a 2020 interview. “I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older.”

“In the past, a number of popular blogs had published stories about when he might leave the series. However, most of those articles were speculation.”

During the same interview, Selleck said “Blue Bloods” viewers have come to know the beloved characters. So well, in fact, that they can predict the storyline. 

However, fans are still speculating that Selleck is in fact leaving “Blue Bloods.” Yet, Snopes reported that there was no evidence of that. 

“Further, there had been no announcement by any reputable group that Selleck was leaving “Blue Bloods,” nor did he issue any final words before leaving the stage forever,” the website said.
