In an exclusive interview with Andy, members of New Kids on the Block talked about their just-announced album. Donnie also mentioned that the hit CBS series is “potentially, allegedly” in its final season. Listen to the full interview on Andy’s SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy, on the SiriusXM app and player.

Joey McIntyre on Blue Bloods?

Andy also asked why, besides Donnie, Jordan Knight has been the only other member to appear on the beloved police drama.

“I’ve been trying to get Joey [McIntyre] to do it,” Donnie said. “It’s a no-brainer for Joey to do it. I’m sure he’d be willing if it’s the right part,” adding it’s his “bucket list item” to get Joey on the show before it wraps up.

Donnie has played Detective Danny Reagan throughout the show’s run. Blue Bloods, which premiered in 2010, has been a staple of CBS’s primetime lineup for over a decade. The show follows the Reagan family, a multigenerational clan of law enforcement officers in New York City, as they navigate the complexities of both their professional and personal lives. Wahlberg’s character serves as a dedicated detective with a strong moral compass, often finding himself at the center of gripping cases and family drama.

Wahlberg’s comments come at a time when the future of Blue Bloods has been a topic of speculation within the entertainment industry. While the show has maintained consistently strong ratings and a devoted fan base throughout its run, the decision to continue or conclude a long-running series is often a complex one that involves various factors, including viewer demand, creative direction, and contractual considerations.

For fans of Blue Bloods, Wahlberg’s hint offers a glimmer of hope that the Reagan family’s story may continue beyond the current season. The prospect of more episodes means the opportunity for further character development, compelling storylines, and the resolution of lingering plot threads that have kept audiences engaged for over a decade.
