After CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach last month permanently closed the door to Blue Bloods continuing beyond its upcoming final 8 episodes this fall, one of Paramount Global’s Office of the CEO members today opened the door to the franchise potentially carrying on.

During Paramount Global’s shareholder meeting this morning, Brian Robbins noted that Paramount is home of 14 brands across film and TV that have generated at least $1B in revenue, including NCIS, South Park, Yellowstone, SpongeBob SquarePants, Paw Patrol and Star Trek. “We are building tomorrow’s billion dollar brands right now” he added. “In TV, new franchise extensions are coming for Dexter, Billions and Blue Bloods, and CBS’ hit Fire Country shows huge promise.” (You can watch his comments here, at 9:20 mark.) Spinoffs for Dexter, Billions, Fire Country as well as NCIS have been announced; there has been no official word on a Blue Bloods offshoot yet.

While Paw Patrol, SpongeBob as well as $1B feature franchises Robbins mentioned, including Top Gun, Transformers and A Quiet Place, are under his jurisdiction as President & CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon, the series listed above are under the purview of the other members of the Office of the CEO, Chris McCarthy, President & CEO Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Media Networks (Dexter, Billions), and George Cheeks, President and CEO of CBS (Blue Bloods, Fire Country, NCIS).

Speaking with reporters last month, Cheeks stressed that “divisional clarity will continue,” adding, “In other words, I have no involvement in Paramount Pictures greenlights and Brian has no involvement in CBS show greenlights.” Blue Bloods is currently half-way through its 14th and final season.
