If we look into each season, every episode has a portrayal of a new crime and the Reagan family tries to figure out the mystery and solve the case. With this, their family drama was also building up. At the end of the 11 seasons, we can see that another unknown family member of the Reagan family existed and no one knows about it. As the story develops it’s revealed that he is none other than Joe Hill who is the son of late Joe Reagan. The Reagan family rescued him from the criminals as he was also an undercover agent and in the end, you can see they accepted him into their family.

As nothing is announced yet and not confirmed what will be the next season comes with but one is sure, the work for the Reagans is famous for – the brilliant service in the police department will surely be there. As the new member joins the family – Joe Hill, so we can presume that the next content will be more on joe. In the last season, we also get to know about the tension and problems between the Reagans and the trustworthy people of frank, so hopefully, this scene would also conclude positively.
