The coronavirus
pandemic
has resulted in large modifications throughout the leisure business.

Although Blue Bloods Season 10, Episode 19 (titled “Family Secrets”) was the final of the season, this wasn’t initially the plan. Blue Bloods normally airs 22 episodes per season. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic shut manufacturing down sooner than anticipated.

We suppose Tom Selleck (Frank Reagan) has some psychic potential
he isn’t conscious of. It’s virtually as if he knew episode 10 can be the season
finale. He informed Parade
he thought the episode can be an ideal season finale whereas he was filming
it. At the time, he didn’t know “Family Secrets” can be the final episode the
forged and crew labored on for season 10. Everything labored out, and one of many
most emotional Blue Bloods episodes closed out the season.

“It simply was a type of issues, the place we’re doing the present
and also you’re going, ‘Oh, my God, too bad this isn’t the season finale,’” Selleck
informed Parade. “I’m not kidding. I’m not making this up. I’m not simply hyping it.
I’ve seen it and I do know it is going to be one in all my favourite Blue Bloods.”

Will ‘Blue Bloods’ have a coronavirus episode?

Blue Bloods tends to characteristic storylines that imitate
actual life, however does that imply the coronavirus will take heart stage in a
future episode? Selleck informed Parade he doesn’t suppose the worldwide well being disaster
will make an look on the present. Most viewers watch TV to flee actuality,
so that concept may not be on the desk. Here’s what Selleck informed the
publication:

Look, I’m not the police commissioner and I stay in a fictional world, but we’re making an attempt to depict issues of police work in a sensible method. But Frank Reagan’s New York, or Danny Reagan’s New York, or Erin Reagan’s New York is a fictional creation. I do know lots of people are watching Blue Bloods to get away from the coronavirus that they see 24 hours a day, so, I can’t actually reply that.

Yes, we’ll take care of cop suicides. We take care of a whole lot of points and corruption of cops and all types of issues, however it’s a must to understand these reveals are deliberate in all probability 4 months upfront. If they occur to be the difficulty of the day when the present airs, that’s a coincidence. My instincts are, I don’t suppose we’re going to do a present concerning the coronavirus.

Tom Selleck says the progress of the present will depend upon the characters

One factor that retains viewers coming again is the characters. Fans can’t wait to see what’s going to occur subsequent with Erin, Danny, Jamie, and the remainder of the forged. When requested the place the present goes from right here, Selleck says the following steps can be decided by the characters:

I feel the place the present goes is the place the characters go. Yes, we now have procedural stuff, sure, we take care of points – hopefully, not ripped from the headlines points. They could look that method by the point they air as a result of they find yourself being well timed as a result of they’re actual issues.

For Donnie [Wahlberg], it’s a very totally different present in season 10 then it was in season 1. I feel that’s what retains us all so dedicated to it. We have invested in our characters. They’ve been allowed to develop and alter and become older. And so long as we are able to try this, there’s solely actually seven plots.

Somebody mentioned that, I don’t know who, however what’s essential is the character. That’s at all times been my bent anyway. That’s what I’ve at all times tried to push Blue Bloods in the direction of, and that’s what we now have.
