Blue Bloods is coming to an end, and with that, some familiar faces are making a comeback. The show will conclude with a two-part Season 14 on CBS, and Jennifer Esposito is set to return for an appearance during the final season.
When Will Jennifer Esposito Return?
Esposito will make her first appearance back as Detective Jackie Curatola in Season 14 Episode 2, airing on Friday, February 23.
Why is Jackie Curatola Back in New York?
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Baez (Marissa Ramirez) team up with Jackie when a serial killer reappears. It seems like the team will be revisiting a case from the past, given Jackie’s return.
What’s Changed for Jackie?
Esposito left Blue Bloods in 2012 due to her Celiac disease diagnosis. It’s been 12 years since she was last on the show, so there’s a lot of excitement about what she’s been up to. Jackie was a big personality on the team, and the show has struggled to fill that void. It will be interesting to see how she’s changed and how she’ll get along with her former colleagues.
Will Jennifer Esposito Return for More Episodes?
It’s unclear if Esposito will return for more episodes in Season 14. However, given that the show is getting an 18-episode farewell season, there’s a good chance of it happening.
Why is Blue Bloods Ending?
CBS announced in November that Blue Bloods was coming to an end after 14 seasons. The decision was likely due to the show’s high production costs, as longer-running shows typically come with ballooning salaries for the cast.
When Does Blue Bloods Season 14 Premiere?
Blue Bloods Season 14 premieres on Friday, February 16, at 10/9c on CBS.
