The Reagan family return to the small screen for some more police procedural drama on Friday - read on to find out how you can watch Blue Bloods Season 11 online and stream every new episode as soon as it's released, no matter where you are in the world.
Having been hauled off air early back in May thanks to issues with filming due to the coronavirus, Tom Selleck and co are back, with a new run of shows, intriguingly set six months after the end of the pandemic.
Blue Bloods Season 11 premieres on Friday December 4 on CBS at 10pm ET/PT as part of the network's new Friday night line-up, with the show nicely scheduled after the reboot of Magnum P.I. - Tom Selleck's old 80's crime vehicle. You can live stream Magnum P.I. Season 3 on CBS All Access (opens in new tab) - and anyone from the US abroad can check out the VPN route (opens in new tab) to watch just like they would at home.

The opening episode of the new series sees the return of Whoopi Goldberg to the cast as City Council Speaker Regina Thomas, and a face-off with Tom Selleck's character, Frank, as protests against police brutality grip the city.
There's early tension in the season opener as Danny and Baez go missing while searching for a killer.
Meanwhile, the new series also picks up the storyline of the late Joe Reagan’s son, Joe (Will Hochman), who was introduced at the end of season 10.
