Blue Bloods Season 12 Gets Premiere Date
Like the other major networks, CBS tends to wait until mid-summer to decide premiere dates for the new and returning shows.
As a result, Blue Bloods fans had to wait until now to learn the fate of their beloved drama. And the results are (drumroll, please): We’ll have to wait an unusually long time for the premiere.
Although CBS gave similar dramas such as NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, FBI: Most Wanted, and FBI: International premiere dates in September, Blue Bloods does not debut in 2021 until October.
Deadline reports that the October debut date will see Blue Bloods following two other dramas, one of which is in a new time slot.
On Friday, October 1, Blue Bloods season 12 will premiere following S.W.A.T. (Season 5 premiere; new time slot) at 8 to 9 pm and, at 9-10 pm, Magnum P.I. (Season 4 premiere). That puts the debut of Blue Bloods season 12 in the 10-11 pm time slot.
