Marisa Ramirez Upgraded to Series Regular on Blue Bloods

by at . Comments

Marisa Ramirez has received a nice promotion from CBS.

The actress will be a series regular when Blue Bloods returns for Season 4 in the fall, after the former Against the Wall star joined the drama toward the conclusion of Season 3.

Ramirez's Detective Maria Baez will be the permanent partner of Donnie Wahlberg's Danny going forward.

She joined the cast following a falling out between producers and Jennifer Esposito in October and also after Megan Boone and Megan Ketch briefly stopped by to fill the void.

I had high hopes, that Jennifer Esposito would return to the show. She and Donnie worked well together, and they fit the role of partners, not like all these new partners he now has!


I'm so disappointed that CBS didn't bring back Jennifer Esposito. She and Donnie just fit together as partners. I guess CBS is just like all big companies in that you have to play by their rules regardless of your little problems like "health", etc and don't speak your mind or they will definitely find a way to bring you down. I do think it's a mistake because the character Jackie is well loved by fans.


While I'm sorry about Jennifer's illness she just didn't impress me that much as Jackie. I have been a fan of Marisa Ramirez since her days on General Hospital and I'm thrilled she is returning and I think she works well with Donnie Wahlberg.


I miss Jackie.


jeez the guys had more partners in 3 season than anyone else, shame Jennifer Esposito couldn't come back i liked her
