Let’s put it this way – you see a face grow up in front of you for 10 years and then suddenly the bird decides to fly out of the nest.

Nicky Reagan leaving for San Francisco
Sami Gayle has worked in the role of Nicky Reagan on ‘Blue Bloods’ for all ten seasons. From being a 14-year-old teenager to being an ambitious Columbia University graduate, Nicky Reagan has seen some great moments on the CBS cop show. However, the last we saw of Nicky Reagan on ‘Blue Bloods’ was when she dropped the shocking news of taking up a job in San Francisco.
Up until now, Nicky has been a regular to the Reagan family dinners and it goes without saying that it would be a toughie for our girl here to make the distance of California to New York for a dinner. Conclusion: we might not be seeing much of her.
In the ‘Blue Bloods’ episode, “The Price You Pay”, where Nicky made the revelation, the characters and the viewers were surprised with this announcement that no one saw coming. Naturally, the Reagans put in all their heads together trying to convince her against her decision, albeit with poor skills. We mean, the best they could come with was reminding her how she would have to look for a new pizza and bagel place. Understandably, their arguments did little for changing Nicky’s mind. As of now, then, Nicky Reagan on ‘Blue Bloods’ is moving to San Francisco to work with a start-up that assists financially challenged neighbourhoods.
Why is Sami Gayle leaving?
The scene with the Reagan family trying to deal with Nicky’s news affected the ‘Blue Bloods’ fans emotionally. Fans began wondering if that was it for Nicky Reagan and Sami Gayle on the show. They have come out expressing concern over how she was their favourite on ‘Blue Bloods’ and how it wouldn’t be the same if she left. A fan wrote on “Twitter”,
“@SamiGayle Are u leaving blue blood cuz I really hope ur not. Ur one of my fav characters and blue bloods is not going to be the same with Nicky Reagan at family dinner.” To this, another fan replied, “I completely agree! I really wanted to see her grow like we’ve seen jamie grow and get married with eddie. Was sad when they made it a job offer a few wks back, i was hoping she was bringing a partner to dinner next time.” Well, amidst all the “#dontleavesami” shout-outs, what is it really that’s making Sami leave?
Our best guess, for now, is that it has something to do with her graduating from Columbia (in real life). Moreover, her career is on a roll at the moment, with her already having landed and performed in other major roles including one in ‘Candy Jar’, while playing Nicky Reagan on ‘Blue Bloods’. Nevertheless, the status of Sami’s departure from the show is still a little foggy since the actress hasn’t issued a public statement yet. That makes for quite the confusion on whether Nicky Reagan could appear in at least some of the episodes of ‘Blue Bloods’.
Chances of Nicky Reagan returning for ‘Blue Bloods’ Season 11
We would not say a hundred percent, but it’s up there. Recently, after the whole will-she-won’t-she dilemma regarding Sami’s exit, rumours have been going around that Nicky Reagan will be back for season 11 of ‘Blue Bloods’. There have been hints of her return dropped here and there, and fans are choosing to blindly believe in them. In fact, some even believe that the character might return to the show pregnant based on a teeny-tiny change in appearance.
Another reason why people have been so positive about the rumoured return of Nicky Reagan on ‘Blue Bloods’ is that it has been backed by a series insider. Bridget Moynahan shared with “PopCulture” in an exclusive interview that she is hopeful of Nicky’s return in season 11. Confirming of having played out a family dinner scene with Sami Gayle, Moynahan said, “So, hopefully, she’ll be coming back and doing something with us”.
