April 13 (UPI) -- CBS has renewed its cop drama Blue Bloods for a 10th season.
"First a goodbye to DelGado ... Then a goodbye to Linda. On to season 10! #BlueBloods," series lead Donnie Wahlberg tweeted Friday, referring to the departures of guest star Lou Diamond Phillips and longtime cast member Amy Carlson.
"Blue Bloods has been a Top 10 drama and Friday's top-rated show every year it's been on the air," Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement Friday.
"On a night that many have claimed is quiet for broadcast television, its quality writing, superb acting and familial warmth have attracted an average of over 13 million passionate viewers each week for nine years. We are delighted that Tom will return and that the show will continue to be a vital component of the CBS schedule next season."
