Is Will Estes leaving ‘Blue Bloods’? Sergeant Jamie Reagan’s fate revealed.

As of this writing, there's no evidence that suggests that Will Estes is retiring from his role as Jamie. But he came pretty close to being killed off of the CBS series in the premiere.

In Season 13, Episode 1, titled "Keeping the Faith," the 29th precinct investigated a domestic violence case. Eventually, Jamie took matters into his own hands and tracked down a suspect.

In a turn of events, Jamie was shot by the assailant. But fans shouldn't fear as the episode had a happy ending. Ultimately, the NYPD sergeant survived the shooting and lived to fight another day.

This isn't the first time showrunners teased Will's exit from the series. Last season, Frank's longtime frenemy, Mayor Chase, offered his youngest son a job on his security detail. Although Jamie was adamant about his decision to decline the mayor’s offer, Season 13 brought the opportunity back into focus.

The synopsis for Season 13, Episode 2 teased, "Jamie begins a new job as a field intelligence sergeant that requires him to keep secrets from his family."

Jamie may have a new gig, but we highly doubt he’s giving up his seat at Sunday dinner anytime soon. So, if Jamie isn’t leaving Blue Bloods in 2022, who is?

Who is leaving ‘Blue Bloods’ in 2022?

Over the years, several rumors have surfaced online that suggest that OG Blue Bloods characters like Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) and Tom Selleck’s Frank may be leaving the series. Thankfully, it appears that none of them are true.

So far, showrunners have not confirmed any major character exits ahead of Season 13. And Blue Bloods cast members would prefer it to stay that way.

Of his role, Tom Selleck previously told PEOPLE, "I don't think there is an endpoint. I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older."
