Blue Bloods is already in the midst of its curtail call. The show was confirmed to end with the current season, and every episode from season 14 thus far has given the impression that the writers want to do right by the characters.

Well, closure may not be as close we all thought. Donnie Wahlberg, the actor who plays Danny Reagan, recently appeared on Sirius XM's Andy Cohen Live, where he gave fans a pretty exciting update on what to expect.

Wahlberg confirmed 'rumblings' of a renewal

Fire Drill
“Fire Drill” – Jamie partners with the FDNY to find the arsonist responsible for a massive fire at an NYPD evidence storage facility. Also, Danny and Baez feel the ripples of the storage facility fire when all the evidence against a cartel leader Danny brought to justice is destroyed; Anthony asks Erin to let him lead on a murder case when his friend is killed; and Eddie asks Frank to put her on modified duty following her divisive arrest of an anti-cop protestor at a rally, on BLUE BLOODS, /

When asked point blank about the chances of Blue Bloods getting renewed, Wahlberg gave a more direct answer than any listener was expecting. He kept asserting that the current season was not confirmed to be the last, and emphasized the words "allegedly" and "potentially." He also said this:

"There are rumblings [it isn’t], so we’ll see what happens."

Well, that changes everything. Wahlberg has been vocal about wanting to continue the show, and so has his onscreen dad, Tom Selleck, who told TV Line that he would play Frank Reagan for as long as fans would let him:

"I’m not counting the days so I can do something else. I want work as long as they’ll have me."

There is a precedent for CBS shows that were canceled and then brought back. SWAT, for example, was canceled and then brought back after protest from fans and cast members. There's no reason to think the same isn't possible with Blue Bloods, given how much attention the show has gotten, and how much the actors enjoy being on it.

Wahlberg and Tom Selleck want to return

ALLEGIANCE
“Allegiance” – Erin and Anthony team up with Erin’s nephew, police officer Joe Hill (Will Hochman), to course-correct a trial when Joe becomes aware of witness tampering. Also, Baez forces Danny to help her find the killer of her favorite TV personality; a seemingly random shooting at police Lt. Raymond Moretti’s (Tony Danza) home leads Frank to investigate who in the officer’s family has criminal ties; and as Eddie works an SVU case, she questions her decision to become a police sergeant, on /

That is, assuming its financially feasible for CBS. The common assumption with television is that shows get more expensive the longer they've been on the air, and with fourteen seasons under its belt, Blue Bloods is probably in the pricey range (especially factoring in the star power).

Pay cuts were a talking point ahead of season 14, with regards to the main trio of Wahlberg, Selleck and Bridget Moynahan, so there could be additional negotiations if CBS decides to take the plunge and renew the show for a fifteenth year!

Nothing is confirmed, per Wahlberg, but we will keep our fingers crossed.

Next. wedding. Every character in Brettsey's wedding. dark
