Redditor jenh6 was “surprised that Blue blood was never adapted by the CW… Rich and privileged children of the city, romances and vampires, recipe for success on their part. They should have done it in 2010.” Luckily, Blue Bloods’ inherent tropes are still much adored by on-screen fans, and De La Cruz’s expansive world with many interesting characters makes him a worthy candidate for a movie. possible TV series.
