Season 10’s finale surprised fans by having the Reagans find out Joe Reagan has a son. That son is Joe Hill, who is a detective working in firearms. He ended the episode by having dinner with the Reagans for the first time.
Executive producer, Kevin Wade revealed the inspiration behind this story. “Right after Thanksgiving, Siobhan Byrne O’Connor, the wonderful writer who came up with this and wrote this episode, came to me with this idea,” he said, during a virtual reunion with the cast.
“We had someone we work closely with on the show … who’d done ancestry and had their life turned upside down by the result,” he said. Season 11 showed what happened after this big reveal.
