CBS announced that its popular family-oriented cop drama “Blue Bloods” will end next fall after a two-part 14th season premiering Feb. 16.

The series stars Tom Selleck as New York Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, the patriarch of a closely-knit family fighting crime as part of the NYPD and the DA’s office.

It has been a Friday-night staple on CBS since premiering in 2010 and is the night’s top-rated series, averaging over 9.5 million viewers per week last season.

“For the past 13 years it has been an honor and a privilege to work on a show that not only celebrates the men and women who protect and serve in New York city, but also displayed the importance of family,” Selleck, 78, said in a statement.

“Working alongside these incredible actors, writers, producers, directors and crewe has been a dream come true and I’m grateful to have been a part of this extraordinary group for over 275 episodes.”

The series, shot in location in New York City, stars Donnie Wahlberg as Det. Danny Reagan; Bridget Moynahan as ADA Erin Reagan; Will Estes as Sgt. Jamie Reagan; and Len Cariou as retired NYPD Commissioner Henry Reagan.
