Blue Bloods

Is Frank Reagan retiring on Blue Bloods? Showrunner says no

The Commissioner will not be hanging up his badge.

Blue Bloods is at an interesting point. The show has half a season left before it ends, but the main cast members have continued to lobby for the show to continue during interviews. Tom Selleck has been especially vocal about his desire to keep Blue Bloods on the air, to the point where he’s called out CBS directly.

We’ve covered Tom Selleck’s seasons for wanting the show to continue, but what’s even more intriguing is the fact that his character is similarly hesitant to retire. Frank Reagan is currently the commissioner of the NYPD, but the fact that he’s getting older, coupled with the tendency of shows to make big life changes in a finale, has led fans to speculate on his potential retirement.

Kevin Wade asserted that Frank would not retire

“Family Secrets” — After getting a match from an unknown relative from a DNA network, Sean Reagan does some detective work to figure out who this mystery person might be, and Frank gets a personal request from a woman, Paula Hill (Bonnie Sommerville), to transfer her son to a safer assignment. Also, Danny seeks to uncover the truth behind the murder of a key witness in one of Erin’s cases, and Eddie begins to think about having a child after she and Jamie discover a newborn left outside their /

Blue Bloods showrunner Kevin Wade was asked about Frank’s career plans during a recent interview with TV Insider, and he made it clear that the character is not giving up his title anytime soon. In fact, Frank is going to be commissioner for as long as he can:

“I’m pretty sure that Frank would stay in his job until the series ended.”

The showrunner arrived at this conclusion because he reasoned that Frank Reagan would not be the type of person who wanted to spend his retirement hanging out with friends and taking up hobbies. Given what we know about him from a decade and a half of television, we’d have to agree.

Frank Reagan is still committed to cleaning up NYC

Forgive Us Our Trespasses
“Forgive Us Our Trespasses” – Danny and Baez team up with Danny’s old partner, Jackie Curatola (Jennifer Esposito), to find a copycat killer emulating murders from a previous case. Also, Frank and Mayor Chase (Dylan Walsh) battle over how best to handle the city’s rising homeless population; and Jamie, Eddie and Erin team up to build evidence against a previously released man who they believe is again committing criminal assault, on the 13th season finale of BLUE BLOODS, Friday, May 19 /

“The show is built on him being the police commissioner of New York City,” Wade asserted. “So to take a detour during the last mile, if this is the last mile, I don’t know what he would be doing down at the hardware store or having coffee with old buddies during the day. I always have to look at stuff that generates stories.”

Frank has not lost a step when it comes being to “CEO of 35,000 cops,” as Wade put it, and it would be odd to envision a world in which he hands the reins of New York City over to someone who could mess up everything he’s accomplished. He’s a lifer, and frankly (no pun intended, we swear), we’re glad to hear it.
