Donnie Wahlberg considers himself fortunate to have been a part of two long-running entertainment institutions: The New Kids on the Block and Blue Bloods.
The police procedural was renewed for a 14th season by CBS on Tuesday, and when ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke with him about his upcoming season of the ID true-cr1me series Very Scary People, he couldn’t help but rave about his time on Blue Bloods.
“I’m just so grateful, you know?” Wahlberg revealed. “It’s incredible to be doing so many things that I enjoy.” I’ve been in my band for nearly 40 years, 30-something years, and I’ve been doing this show for 13 years, and I’m eternally grateful.”

Wahlberg admitted that he sometimes wonders if it’s time to hang up his fictional badge, but he’s inspired by keeping up with the long-running Law & Order franchise, as well as his Blue Bloods family.
“I have a great cast that has become family, a great crew, and so many loyal viewers and fans,” he exclaimed. “It’s simply unbelievable. So I don’t feel relieved as much as I have to pinch myself from time to time, wondering, “How did this happen?” Growing up, I dreamed of finding a way to do things I enjoy, and to be doing it after all these years and having so much fun doing it makes me feel so blessed and grateful.”
Blue Bloods is the number one primetime show on Fridays and the number three broadcast drama. The series also stars Tom Selleck, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez, and Vanessa Ray, in addition to Wahlberg.
“Blue Bloods has dominated Friday nights since its debut and remained an important anchor for CBS’ winning lineup,” Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a press release on Tuesday. “Led by Tom Selleck and an incredible cast and creative team, viewers continue to love the Reagans, their law enforcement family, and the series’ dramatic storytelling.” We can’t wait to pull up a seat at the Reagan dinner table for another fantastic season.”
