Blue Bloods Sea­son 7 Wed­nes­days (from 3 May) M-Net (*101) 20:30

It’s been over five months since we last saw Com­mis­sioner Frank Rea­gan (Tom Sel­leck) and his crew of po­lice­men and women de­fend­ing the streets of New York in Blue Bloods (2010- cur­rent). but the good news is that they’re back on the beat af­ter DStv shuf­fled the show around and the rest of sea­son 7 prom­ises more ac­tion than pre­vi­ously. “I’m not tired of it. I don’t think any of the ac­tors are,” Tom says. “We love this writ­ing and film­ing and I said when I started all those years ago, this is a spe­cial show. And it’s get­ting bet­ter.”

BOB­BIES ON THE BEAT

So who’s go­ing to keep the squad busy? In episode 10 (the first episode back af­ter the break), Frank puts his dif­fer­ences aside with re­li­gious leader Rev­erend Pot­ter (Ato

Es­san­doh) when the rev­erend’s son is mur­dered. While the men have a tough time work­ing side-by-side, “The guys find com­mon-ground as fa­thers,” says Tom. “They are able to stop ar­gu­ing while work­ing on this case and search­ing for the killer.” It’s not just po­lice work though – in episode 11 (10 May), Ed­die and Jamie (Vanessa Ray and Will Estes) walk into a brick wall with their adop­tion plans and Jamie asks his Dis­trict At­tor­ney sis­ter Erin (Brid­get Moy­na­han) for help when it goes to court.

CASE (AND SHOW) CLOSED?

There were ru­mours in sea­son 6 that lead star Tom was leav­ing but he signed on for sea­son 7. The gos­sips have started again that Tom’s leav­ing af­ter the sea­son wraps but it’s al­ready been re­newed for an eighth run. “Peo­ple are al­ways talk­ing,” says Tom. “When I have some­thing to say, I will say it. Un­til then, it’s busi­ness as usual and like I’ve said be­fore, I’m not tired of Frank.” NB! See more on p7.
