You’re likely trying to figure out whether or not we should wait for “Blue Bloods” Season 8 on CBS, and if so, when will its release date? There has been no official announcement of the renewal hitherto. But you can scroll down, to sign up for our notifications, or get acquainted with our forecast on the subject.
We’d like to express a bold assumption that “Blue Bloods” will be coming back for a next season, given the mainly favourable reception as well as very strong television ratings. Currently, according to IMDB, “Blue Bloods” has a score of 7.5 out of 10 based on over 21,800 user votes, somewhere 100 reviews from viewers and 17 reviews from critics. At the same time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the seventh season of the police procedural drama has an average score of 3.5 out of 5 and a 75% approval rating.
As for the television ratings, they were impressive during the season’s premiere. The premiere episode has garnered 10.434 million viewers (+3.49% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 1.30 demo rating (+2.36%) among adults (18-49). For comparisons, “Blue Bloods” Season 6 averaged a 1.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.50 million total viewers. On rare occasions, an audience growth is happening in the seventh season, and, therefore, this fact indicates very favourable odds on the renewal.
“Blue Bloods” Season 7 commences when “Danny’s world is rocked when Robert Lewis in the Attorney General’s office obtains new evidence against him in the self-defense shooting case of serial killer Thomas Wilder. Also, Jamie and Eddie respond to a car crash involving a high-profile drunk driver, and Frank is asked by Grace Edwards, the wife of a slain police officer, to keep her only son out of the police force,” according to CBS.
